TANZANIA 2018

31 January 2018

Seeway Project:

Each student on the expedition took part in two days of construction work, helping to lay the foundations for, build and plaster different rooms of Seeway’s new nursery facility. Skills learnt included cement mixing, bricklaying and plastering. The work was absolutely exhausting but incredibly rewarding and we were amazed by how much progress was made over the week. We returned to camp each day tired but happy and as teachers we were incredibly proud of the effort BVIS students put in.

Community Project:

Over two days the students experienced a range of activities that included visiting Kitefu Primary School – a school that benefited from the help of Nord Anglia students 2 years ago and is now running very smoothly in the Arusha region. They then spent some time with some under privileged families and provided them with goat sheds, solar lights and a smokeless stove. The students worked extremely hard and had to adapt to a series of new skills very quickly so they could provide the families with the above amenities as quickly as possible. We also spent the second afternoon building school desks for a local Primary school so that students are not crammed around a small desk trying to learn. All of the students worked hard and as a team and they all said they could see the benefit of what they were doing.

Safari

Each of the three groups were all unbelievably lucky to head on a two day safari to the Tarangire National Park, approximately a 4 hour drive from our campsite in Arusha. Each safari trip started with an early breakfast before heading onto two enormous safari trucks which would take us on the journey to and around the national park. Upon entering the park until leaving, all three groups saw a huge range of wildlife including lions, both male and female, giraffes, zebras, elephants, waterbuck, warthogs, gazelles and some were even lucky enough to see cheetah and baboons. On each truck was an expert guide who had eagle-sharp eyes and were able to spot the animals from huge distances and share with us some very interesting facts about the flora and fauna in the park, making our experience even more amazing. As the sun set on the first day of each safari, the groups made their way to a camp in the middle of the national park where we ate dinner and sat chatting around a campfire before camping under the stars. It was an early start on day two of safari as we were all up at 5am, ready to catch the sunrise as it is one of the most active parts of the day for the wildlife. Each morning didn’t disappoint and each group left the park by midday satisfied with a camera full of photos. On the journey back to Arusha, we all stopped at Shanga, a workshop, gift shop and café where people with various disabilities are able to learn new skills and earn a living. It was such an honour to see their skilled craftsmanship and to experience a place that is doing so much for those in need!
