The students began their stay with a visit of the town of Arusha, where they were able to experience local culture. They then started their work which consisted of painting the walls of the school, building shelves and sorting school books. They also had the opportunity to teach the children. In the evening, students reflected on solutions to improve the quality of life of the villagers. After a few days of hard work, the students went on a safari trip.
"What touched me the most during the trip is when you get there, nothing has been done and when you leave you have accomplished something concrete. Also, the recognition from the locals is priceless, it's a magical feeling. What I liked the most was to spend time with students from other Nord Anglia Education schools, because we all have different backgrounds, with different cultures. But we are all together in one place, to achieve a common goal, which is amazing.”
