Price: Participation fee £1040 (GBP) plus flights

Location: Marangu on the lower slopes of Kilimanjaro, Tanzania

About the project

We are returning to our amazing project in Tanzania to continue the work started by our 2017 Big Build Team.

Students will be working in partnership with Ng’aroni School and the local community to improve educational facilities and infrastructure for this rural school, located on the lower slopes of Mt Kilimanjaro. The school previously shared facilities with Mbahe Primary School nearby, meaning classrooms were very crowded and Ng’aroni teachers and pupils lacked their own school buildings and equipment. Children also had a long distance to travel to school and in challenging weather it was dangerous.

Character development

Participants will take it in turns to be student leaders during the project, taking responsibility for the organisation of the day, briefing their peers, giving an overview of safety and risk management and organising a student rota to help with different chores at camp. Students will be given feedback by their peers and the adult leaders, and will all receive a personal report after the trip.

All participants will:

Big Build Projects are the perfect opportunity for Schools to provide targeted leadership training for potential future leaders including your next Head Boy or Girl, or students with other areas of responsibility in their school (eg sports captain, school prefect, committee chair.)
