Twaweza offices flooded

I was sorry to hear that the Twaweza offices in Dar es Salaam were flooded last week — causing no injuries, but severe property damage. Twaweza is an organization I have been working with since the beginning of the year (on a project along with Dan Posner and Lily Tsai), and their main goal is to empower citizens in Africa to improve their lives, particularly in areas such as education, water provision, and health. From the update on their website, it sounds like good citizens did a great job of evacuating people and cleaning things up. But I wish them luck in getting things back in order to continue their important work early in 2012.
