Upon arriving in Kigoma Melissa accompanied Harold and Connie as they drove one of the locals and her baby back home. They had been in Dar Es Salaam so the baby could have eye surgery to try and correct his blindness. This is a picture of the reunion and celebration of their homecoming.
Melissa ran into Jane Goodall when she was in Tanzania. Jane Goodall started the Jane Goodall Institute to help protect and study chimpanzees and to teach people about them. The institute works with local communities to improve the environment and runs a program called Roots and Shoots for children and teenagers around the world.
