Citizenship Expedition

From our camp at the base of Mount Meru, your child will participate in a highly rewarding programme of service work with the local community.

The Year 12 students will be participating in The Seeway Project in Tanzania run by Nord Anglia Expeditions. BSN students will join together with students from The British Vietnamese International School of Ho Chi Minh and The British International School of Houston.


As a group they will be assisting local families in the Usa River area, located between Kilimanjaro and Mount Mehru. The work is carried out in local homes selected with the help of village elders and a screening process by Seeway to ensure that those who benefit are the most in need of support. Students will spend a day with the family, where they will contribute in the following ways;

  • Build a smokeless stove to improve cooking facilities and a healthier environment due to more efficient burning of wood.
  • Build a goat shed.
  • Provide a goat.
  • Install a simple solar system with a mobile phone charging point and basic lighting.


In addition to directly helping families, Nord Anglia students have been working for many years now with the Seeway organisation to build a primary school and a nursery/ pre school with disabled access and provisions for special educational needs. The impact of Nord Anglia Students in the area has been so great, that they now need a secondary school! Our Year 12’s will be laying the foundations for this new school. The money raised will go directly to Seeway to provide the equipment and building materials for the local families and the school.


Students will spend a day on a coffee plantation learning about coffee production and sustainable business models/agriculture and Fairtrade rules.


The last part of the trip is a safari to the Tarangire National Park where students will have the chance to see the wildlife of Africa for themselves! Students will camp in the National Park surrounded by these amazing animals and wake up to the dawn chorus of the birds!
