We are very excited to be taking part in this expedition and have already been doing a lot of preparation for the trip. It is a great opportunity for us to not only learn and experience the global culture, but to also learn to help others in need in our global community.
When we are in Tanzania we will be working closely with the Huruma Orphanage. During our stay we will be helping to cook, clean, teach and care for children in the orphanage, as well as doing farm work and repainting areas that need renovating. We will also visit Maua Primary School where we will get involved in classes: teaching and sharing our knowledge with the children there, as well as helping with some vital building maintenance.
We each need to raise 700 Euros for the trip which will be donated to the Huruma Orphanage, so there’s a lot of work to do!
So far we’ve raised 2,270 rmb from our first bake sale – it was a very successful beginning, and we’ve got lots more things planned.
Our upcoming events are:
We are holding another bake sale on the 30 November at the Lions Rugby festival at BISS Puxi. We welcome everybody to come and support the Lions and the future young rugby players, and also buy lots of cakes!
Can your house collect the most?! There will be a coin collection in the primary and secondary school, where the houses will battle it out to collect the most coins – get involved to make your house the winner!
Christmas card competition
Students from all year groups have been given the opportunity to design African/Tanzanian Christmas cards. The best, most creative Africa/Tanzania themed Christmas card designs will be printed ready to sell at the Winter Wonderland and the Winter Concert. Five winning cards will be chosen.
We are all really looking forward to this trip, and greatly appreciate the opportunity to visit such an amazing place and the chance to help children who are less fortunate than us.
We’d like to thank everyone in advance for supporting our efforts and hard work and hope to see you all at the upcoming events! Look out for more updates from us to see how we’re getting on.
