Next trip – TBC
The project that started with the aim to distribute donated bras to women to help reduce sexual assualt resulted in 500kg being recieved to our office in Dorset and 250kg being distributed. Due to Tanzanian red tape the second trip in June 2017 meant we had to revert back to the distribution of children clothes but this project has done some great stuff so far!
From the bra project came the funding for a brand new pre-school for the children of the Masai Village in Namelok, we distributed 200kg of clothes to children in five villages and helped two children to hospital.
So, like our other projects this trip focuses on helping the disadvantaged children in the villages surrounding Iringa. This includes small welfare projects including solar panels, water tanks, toilet blocks and small school buildings along with the distribution of “School in a bag” Rucksacks and donated childrens clothes.
The week will provide you with the chance to make a real difference to the hundreds of children you met and see how happy they are just recieving a t-shirt or even a School Bag full of pens and pencils to help them learn. You see, education is a priviledge here, not a right.
Come and experience the African sunset with like-minded people.
