The Global Expedition programme offers exciting opportunities that challenges students to take a new perspective on issues affecting communities the world over. This November, 11 DCIS students and other NAE classmates took part in an eight day community service expedition to Tanzania. The end goal: to build connections, develop a strong sense of sustainability and become true global citizens.

While these Year 9, 10 and 11 students were in Tanzania, we took part in a variety of sustainable service projects. We discussed in detail with the local community and the leaders of the expedition what sustainability meant to them. The aim was to be able to work independently without negative impacts on the community in the future. The projects we participated in were building goat sheds, constructing smokeless stoves and installing solar panels for five different families. At Nazarati School we helped with laying the foundation for a new classroom and plastering the walls of a new teacher accommodation block.

After a few days of hard work, we drove off in a huge safari truck and a small 4 x 4 for a night in the bush. During the two day safari at Tarangire National Park , we were overwhelmed by the number of animals we saw including lions, wildebeests, giraffes, impalas, elephants and many more. One group even saw the stealthy and elusive leopard which is rarely spotted.

The safari was not all fun and games however. We recorded every animal spotted and noted down data including the total number, gender, age and location. We used this data to learn more about the animals and their migration patterns and how this information could potentially be used for protection of the animals against wildlife poachers. Since our base was a fenceless campsite in the middle of the park, during the night we had monkeys and wild dogs pay a visit and one group even had lions roaming nearby! All in all it was an impactful and exciting trip and we all had an amazing experience.
