Tanzania Service Trip

At our Boston private school, your child will have access to a wide range of learning opportunities, both locally and globally. One of our newest learning opportunities is our annual service learning trip to Tanzania, which brings students from around the world together to help those in need and broaden their world views.

In March 2017, ten students and two staff members from the British International School of Boston will travel to Tanzania for two weeks. They will continue the work that has been done be three earlier volunteer groups in years past.
​All funds raised go to in-country service projects

The Tanzania project is a service learning initiative of Nord Anglia Education, bringing together students from across the organization's global network of 42 schools. 

The first Tanzania expedition embarked in February 2014. During the 10-day trip, students from BISB and around the Nord Anglia Education network helped renovate the school building at Maua Primary School and enjoyed a number of cultural opportunities.  

In February 2015, more than 100 students from our family of global schools, including five from the British International School of Boston, completed similar service work at the Kitefu School. 

Our Boston students' work in Tanzania also expanded , working in a Maasai village with residents and local experts to develop a sustainable food garden that aims to provide vital fruits and vegetables to feed the school's students for years to come.

The initiative, lead by Tanzanian guide company Summits Africa, was a brand new one, and gave BISB students the opportunity to not only help a community in need, but learn how aid projects like this one are successful. The students worked closely with the village residents to ensure the agricultural development put in place is something the village can sustain on their own and that can serve as an example for possible future projects in the village.

This year the project is continuing  with another two weeks in Tanzania. Our students will  continue the work that began last year and develop the sustainable farming site further.

The project will not be possible without the support of the British International School of Boston community and the Greater Boston community. Last year our community was vital to the project's success, helping to raise more than $15,000 to fund the sustainable farming project. 

You can learn more about the Tanzania project and show your support on our online fundraising website. We will also be offering again this year sponsorships by local businesses and organizations to help support the projects.
