Please see updates from our Year 12 students helping the local community improve their current living conditions and future quality of life. They will also experience the beauty of living in the Safari.
Group 1 Ms. Lucy Thompson
We visited a local village and fair trade coffee farm this morning. They had a tour of the village and then visited the farm where they were taught about the coffee production process. We then headed back to camp for lunch before heading off on our camping evening in Dolly bush where the students will pitch their own tents, cook their own evening mea. Tomorrow morning they will also cook their own breakfast then clean and pack away the camp.
Group 2 Ms. Sarah Donnelly
Group 2 spent the day helping to build a new Secondary school for students who currently have to walk a great distance to be able to continue their education. Students worked brilliantly in teams to lay a foundation of stones, and then mix and lay cement. It was hard work, not only because it was physically demanding, but the Tanzania heat was an added challenge. Students definitely had to demonstrate resilience throughout the day!
Group 3 is in the Safari with no internet.
Group 4 Mr. Andrew Brigstock
Today our group was split into three, and we went to 3 different rural homes and installed solar panel lights for them, built smokeless stoves and a goat shed for each family. We also donated each a goat. The families can also use the solar panels to charge phones and earn income from their neighbours for charging, as well as selling their goats milk. A tough day of work, but some small attributes that will make a significant improvement to the lives of these families.
