Tanzania is an East African country known for its stunning national parks, hosting “the big five” (elephant, lion, rhino, leopard, buffalo) animals and Kilimanjaro. As one of the most stable and peaceful democracies in Africa, it is bursting with energy and enthusiasm from its welcoming youth to create change in its communities.
Community Project – School Water, Sanitation and Hygiene
You will work with local schools in the Kilombero and Mvomero regions to impart safe water and sanitation hygiene knowledge to primary school children and the wider communities. You will help build sanitation facilities at the schools and deliver awareness raising campaigns and initiatives. This will improve the health outcomes of the community and help increase school attendance.
Environment Project – Youth for Sustainable Forest Managament
The project is based in the Mufindi District of Iringa Region in the Southern Highlands of Tanzania and is situated on the fringes of the southern Udzungwa Mountains, part of the Eastern Arc range, which is one of World Wildlife Fund’s Global 200 priority ecoregions. Tanzanian and international young people work with the community to develop forest management plans, raise awareness, knowledge and skills and promote sustainable income-generating activities and improve infrastructure.
Adventure Project – Trek
Trekking through the Morogoro region or Southern Highlands, you’ll wind your way up, down and through varied terrain. Led by our local guides and Raleigh leaders, your trek will pass through small communities and stunning scenery. You’ll camp out under incredible skies, unaffected by light pollution. Unique to trek in Tanzania is the opportunity to visit a national park. You will see some of the animals that Tanzania is famous for first hand, and you’ll also learn about the importance of wildlife conservation in this incredible part of the world.
Trek requires courage to venture outside your comfort zone, and there are highs and lows. Supporting one another through these moments, the friendships formed on trek are often some of the strongest on Expedition because of all that you have shared and learnt together.
