International Project Ikirwa School Tanzania

Outstanding presentation by Ikirwa School founder and SMS Alumna Masha Skuratovskaya. Masha's family were host to David and Margaret Broad during the Russian coup in August 1991 and since then their lives have been intertwined. During her tenure at the World Bank and travelling to Tanzania and climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, Masha decided to personally reinvest herself in a community of children that needed help with their education in rural East Africa. The Ikirwa School is now in its second phase and Masha is fund raising for several new classrooms and several other school support projects. Tappahannock Rotary has applied to receive grants to double its own grant for this designated international project for the current year.  From left to right: John Frazier - International Projects Committee, Joe Johnston - Community Service Chair and acting Club President for the evening, Masha Skuratovskaya of Juneau, Alaska and Chair of the Ikirwa School Trust and investment manager at the World Bank and at the Alaska (Oil) Permanent Fund, Margaret Broad - retired head of St. Margaret's School and sponsor of Masha's scholarship to attend SMS from Moscow Russia, and David Broad - sponsor of the Ikirwa School Project and Chair of Rotary Public Image.
