World Classroom Part 2

March 13, 2008 at 4:06 pm Leave a comment

A second group of students from Yew Chung International School of Hongkong and China arrived in Karatu in February 2008 to continue what the first group started in November the year before: donating cash and materials, and personally assisting in building a new classroom for the Mlimani secondary school outside Karatu Town.

Many villagers came to bring small gifts to the visitors from the Far East. Mr. Edward Hepting, spokesperson of the group, explained that after their journey to Africa, the first group of students had set up an African display at the school. It has the aim to inform their fellow students about the help project in particular and about Tanzania more generally and therefore acts to create awareness of the needs of the country and as an ambassador of cultural learning and understanding. Mr. Hepting further said that many of the students wrote comments in the university’s journal about how much they enjoyed their mission in Karatu. He thanked Leila Ansell, director of ZARA’s Highview Hotel Karatu and her staff for the logistic support and friendly welcome.
