Student Safari

The purpose of this trip is to take students back to the cradle of humanity - not just to civilizations past, but to where humanity began - East Africa. By being involved in this particular trip, students will not only view the people and lifestyles of one of the most vibrant countries in East Africa, they will have the chance to view one of the most endangered ecosystems in the world. Wealthy people, with their 'demand' for the exotic - some people included -are killing the diversity of planet Earth. The fortunate students who get to go on this trip will get to see sights that others will never see because of the 'demand' for trophies or living space - and who, perhaps, can blame some people for poaching to earn a living that is leading to the extinction of species. This trip blends people and nature.

OBJECTIVES:

  1. To expose students to a part of planet Earth that they, or their parents, would probably never think of going.
  2. To take students out of their comfort zone (safely), and into the realm of where almost 50 per cent (maybe more) of the world's population live - day-to-day survival.
  3. To expose students to the beauty of Africa - the people, the ecosystem, and the ability to be happy with few of the material comforts in life.
  4. To experience a cultural exchange with the Kenyans by visiting a mission school where the students have been orphaned because of the AIDS epidemic in Kenya, and later to visit a Teachers' College of young hopeful Kenyans who are training to be teachers.
  5. To experience a Farm stay so that students get to experience a life on a farm on a large estate in which the enterprising farmers today use modern agricultural methods to work the land and who also supplement their living with evening safari tours
  6. To be able to empathize with those - anywhere in the world, including your home country- who, through no direct fault of their own, are not able to enjoy the same comforts as people in the 'developed world'.
  7. To be able to interract with other students in all over the world though intra versities exchange programmes .
