Chargé d’Affaires Inmi Patterson Visits U.S.-Funded Programming in Iringa

Dar es Salaam, TANZANIA.  From July 20 to 21, the Chargé d’Affaires of the U.S. Embassy in Dar es Salaam Inmi Patterson traveled to Iringa, Tanzania to visit, and raise awareness of, U.S. efforts to empower local Tanzanians to develop healthy and educated communities, promote local and regional economies, strengthen stable and democratic institutions, and enable women and youth.

“The broad scope of our commitment to Tanzania reflects the depth of the relationship between our two countries,” said Chargé d’Affaires Patterson during a visit to Luganga Primary School in Kilolo District, where the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID)-funded “Tusome Pamoja” project supports primary school education through new learning materials, training for teachers and administrators, and increased engagement among parents and communities.  “Our partnership and cooperation with the Tanzanian people has been at the heart of our relationship over the last half century, and we are proud to be a partner for Tanzanians in their efforts to build a peaceful, prosperous, secure, and healthy Tanzania. I am confident that commitment will continue, and that relations between our countries will flourish.”

A key region for U.S. Government partnership since 2010, Iringa hosts a wide range of U.S. Government training and development assistance, including USAID-funded programming and Peace Corps. Development cooperation with Tanzanian partners is part of the U.S. Government’s broader investment and cooperation with the Tanzanian people.
