34 Keswick School students, aged between 16 and 18 accompanied by four members of the school staff and two leaders from Camps International were helped by Rotary Funding for a trip of a life-time.
The school visit was split into two parts - a “work phase” and an “adventure phase” During the three week work phase students lived in local communities in a number of locations in Northern Tanzania. These include Manyara, Moshi and Tanga. In each location, the students worked on community projects organised by Camps International. Typically, the work included building or repairing local schools, constructing community buildings, environmental projects and outreach such as teaching local students. The adventure phase was an ascent of Mt Meru, which at 4562m is the fifth highest mountain in Africa. This took about four days.
Two pupils came to Rotary Lunch afterwards and presented a synopsis of their trip with photos and returned the Keswick Rotary Club Flag after its long trip
