I am raising money for an expedition to Tanzania. The project: A team of students from Beckfoot school including myself with the help of the Outlook Expedition team will be working with a local children’s trust in the small rural community of Ndatu, just outside Arusha on the flanks of Mount Meru in Tanzania.
The community came up with the idea of starting a kindergarten for Ndatu and the surrounding villages as there was no pre-primary education in the area. It opened in 2005 with just five students and now has over 70!
During your project phase we will be camping in the village and preparing our own meals. The work we will be doing at the kindergarten will involve helping with building/renovation, putting up fencing or planting trees. Throughout the project there will be a chance to help in the kindergarten and also organise games and activities for the children.
We also plan to climb Mount Longido
Leaving the village, we travel from Arusha to the Maasai village of Longido. Experience walking through the African bush with local guides, we will climk and hike to the summit of Mount Longido at 2637m (Higher than the Yorkshire Three Peaks all together)
What am I planning to do before I go?
In an attempt to raise funds, I have a number of goals I hope to reach over the coming months including:
25,000m swim. I plan to swim 1000 lengths in just a few days. (25km)
24 miles - Walk the three peaks - Along with a friend, we plan to hike the Yorkshire Three Peaks in one go.
Please support me by donating to my page. All proceeds will be greatly recieved.
As a personal commitment, I also plan to use my birthday and Christmas money to help fund the expedition!
