I am a Tanzanian-Canadian, born in rural Moshi, now residing part time in Canada. Tanzania will always be my home, but as my kids and grandchildren live in North America, I spend the better part of the year in Toronto. When I am in Tanzania, I spend much of my time volunteering in the area of HIV prevention education with a local NGO which my daughter and I founded in the early '90s.
My house in Moshi is my Tanzanian base, and a place where my children and grandchildren can come stay when visiting with our family. We love the idea of sharing our house with others, as it seems a shame to have it sit idle when others could be enjoying it, using it as a base to take in the pleasures of the town and the region.
Over the decades, we have invited many of our family friends to visit with us and they always say that it was a lifetime opportunity that created lifelong memories. One of our friends who visited before the house was built, was an Austrian architect. He was so moved by Moshi - the people and the surroundings - that he offered to draw our house, making the most of the mountain views. We want our guests to feel the joyful and international spirit of our home, feeling that they too have a home away from home.
