It was a fun day and I was again amazed with the effort that our students had put in researching their costumes.
Although Tanzania Day is only celebrated one day per year the students joining our Tanzania Expedition have already organised various fund raising activities throughout the school year. The money raised during these activities will support the students’ charity work in the Kitefu and Imbaseni communities in Tanzania next January.
Last year our students helped to build goat sheds, smokeless stoves and install solar panels for families in need. They met children in a local orphanage and also helped rebuild the derelict teachers’ accommodation in the Kitefu Primary School.
On behalf of all the students, I would like to thank everyone who has already shown their support. As we have more exciting fundraising activities planned, I would also like to invite you to continue this support and keep in mind the following dates. We cannot do it without you!
