Jambo!This was a program that gave our students a deep, powerful, and meaningful experience, rich with cultural exchange and compassion.
I would lead this trip over and over and over again.
Extrordinarily Insightful TripI have been a traveler since I was very young, but not once in my life have I experienced something so grand as this trip. It really opened my eyes to the life in a third world country and changed my perspective on my own life. The community and staff were amazing, and I honestly wish I could go back!
Wonderful ExperienceThis trip offered our students an experience that they will remember moving forward. The exposure to a different culture that they experienced through their time in Tanzania was remarkable and life-changing.
DisappointedThis tour was not what was described. The first few days the students didn't do much of anything but hang out at camp by themselves & play card games. Over the 7 day "service project" they only did a total of 10 hours of work! The did not interact with a village or school children; only a few mammas and their children. It was a camp experience that they could have duplicated anywhere without travelling all the way to Africa & without so much expense! Not a true taste of Africa. Even their "shopping" experience was the same items, for the same price from Me to We that you can buy at Nordstrom! Not much of a service project. Very disappointed - my student wishes she had spent her very hard earned money elsewhere - to truly help people. Travelling as a group I expected them to sit as a group on the plane. Instead students under 18 were placed in the middle of strangers for very long international travel. This was an expensive trip, I expected more.
