Newsletter Matters

  • Your Contact Info:   Please keep the editor informed of any changes in your contact information.

  • Your News:   Items for inclusion in future newsletters should also be sent to the above address.

  • Notification:   Before each issue I send out an email asking for news items, but do not send a corresponding mailing to snail mail readers due to the cost and time involved. However, snail mail readers are also encouraged to send in items for the newsletter at any time.

  • This online version of the newsletter omits the directory updates.

Website's New Look
for Home Page

  • Icons: Click the icon that looks like a newspaper and you will get to this Newsletter. Click the icon that's a photo of an open book to see recent articles on East African education. Each icon has notes, telling what you'll get if you click it.

  • Sliding photos at the top will stand still if you roll your cursor over any of them. Click one to see it enlarged, with a brief caption.

  • Roll-over menu in the upper left. For example, to get earlier Newsletters, roll your cursor over Member News and a submenu will slide out. Then roll to Earlier Ones and click.

  • Lend a hand: Email your questions, suggestions and relevant photos to henryjh@comcast.net


  • Projects: To view a list of projects, click the treasure chest icon, "TEAA Grants" on the home page. To see photos and information on specific schools that we are assisting, roll over "The Schools" (in menu in upper left of home page) and choose a country.

  • You too can get involved. For more info, click the seesaw icon, "Helping TEAA," on the home page or just write to Brooks at goddard@rcn.com.

  • The simplest way to help us assist schools in East Africa is by a check made out to TEAA and sent to the TEAA treasurer: Henry Hamburger, 6400 Wynkoop Blvd, Bethesda, MD, 20817-5934. Contributions in all forms are acknowledged with a letter suitable for IRS purposes. Call Henry at 301-320-4350 with any questions.

  • Reducing taxes: TEAA is registered as a 501(c)3 organization under the US tax code. This means no tax on capital gains donated to us from IRA accounts. We are set up to accept transfers of (IRA or other) appreciated stock.

  • More: Please click the seesaw icon, "Helping TEAA," on the home page.

Note: Each item in the Contents is clickable.
