Tanzania - **Brand new!**
Replacing Romania 2018, we're very excited to introduce Tanzania! An old DUCK Project revisited, this Project offers you the chance to truly immerse yourself into the local culture as well as making a real tangible difference in the lives of the children and youth you encounter, supporting the entire Maasai community.
Dates: mid July - August (4/5 weeks)
Provisional Fundraising Target: £2200
2017/18 Expedition Leader: Abbie Leadbitter
Tanzania 2018 will be incredible. The team will work in the Maasai community at the foothills of Mt Meru, working towards community development and improvement in the new and fast growing city of Arusha. There are numerous options for the team to choose from - from working in school construction and helping out with the kids, to teaching English for employability in Arusha, to working on youth development schemes for the Maasai. The Swahili/English language barrier is significant in Arusha - primary schools for deprived children only speak Swahili, whilst secondary schools only speak in English. Support these desperate children from deprived communities - by not only offering them the fun and games of childhood, but also supporting their English learning in order that they can continue at school. Because education is so undeniably important. The youth development scheme is similarly invaluable - running community projects and initiatives to deter disadvantaged youth from pursuing a life of abuse and crime. This is the Project to make a real community difference!
Travel possibilities are amazing in Tanzania! From hill trekking to safari to National Parks to Zanzibar..... What more could you ask for! Make the most of some African sun, and the spectacular nature on offer.

Hello guys! I’m Abbie, a third year sociologist at Grey college! I’m leading the DUCK Expedition to Tanzania next summer and I’m super excited to organise it - it’s definitely not one to be missed! At Grey college, I am the captain for Women’s rugby; last year we won the league, so fingers crossed we’re just as lucky this year! Last summer, I deputy led the Cambodia Expedition, where our team taught English to Khmer children. It was a surreal, indescribable experience and one that I’m hoping to top next summer when volunteering with kids in Africa!
