During this year’s off season, Los Angeles Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn visited Tanzania with his wife and kids where he opened a school he helped fund in Lanjani, a rural Maasai village.
“These kids were getting pushed into the workforce as early as possible, growing up without education at all,” Lynn told the NFL about what drove him to hop on the project.
“It was sad, because where do your hopes and dreams come from if you don’t have that? How do you know if you like science until you take a science class? When I learned about the situation, I felt like I had to get involved.”
