On Tuesday, Steamboat Mountain School students, faculty, and parents attended a presentation led by Chris Gates. Gates is the founder and CEO of the Janada Bachelor Foundation for Children in Tanzania. He started the school outside of Mbawa when he was 18 with 8 students and now, nine years later, there are 360 students, a sustainable farm with solar electricity, purified water, and a boarding school program for girls. Steamboat Mountain School students on the Global Immersion Studies Trip to Tanzania visited and volunteered at JBFC in 2014.
