The eight day Tanzania expedition takes students to Maji ya Chai and Usa River in the Arusha region. Here they discover the diverse and vibrant culture of Tanzania while significantly contributing to the communities of Kitefu and Imbaseni. This is a fantastic opportunity for our students to be ambitious and challenge themselves, and the programme is designed to enable them to grow personally whilst enjoying the experience.

The activities nurture key skills such as confidence, resilience, independence and leadership skills that are essential in every child’s education, career and life as a global citizen. Whilst in Tanzania students stay in tents at the Shamba Kipara Camp and do community service work which might include building goat sheds, primary school classrooms, solar systems, smokeless stoves and rainwater collection systems. They also get to experience Tanzania's stunning natural beauty on a two-day safari in Tarangire National Park. To help their development as global citizens, students are required to fundraise US$300 before they go to support service projects in Tanzania.

This unique opportunity sees St. Andrews students working with students from Nord Anglia Education schools around the world on a range of sustainable projects to support the development of communities in Tanzania. The experience broadens our students' horizons by taking them off the beaten track and opening their eyes to the world, cultures and people around them while building lifelong friendships.

Some comments from our students after a day's work building accommodation on the 2016 expedition:

We built teachers’ accommodation because the teachers have to travel a long distance to get to the school, and it’s really tiring – two hours of walking. To help them we built a toilet block and learned how to lay bricks.

Today was intense - but it was worth it.

We went to help someone build their house, and we had to mix water, dirt and cow poo to make cement... and my glove broke!

It was a new experience, and I really enjoyed it. The people were so nice to us. We’re looking forward to tomorrow!
