Andy in East Africa

First of all I have to congratulate the entire Tanzania GAP 2009 team for their efforts at Waang'waray School. The new classroom is incredible and is already in use by the kids so that they can get top notch primary education. The task for the 2010 team will be to finish another classroom so that the School will have a total of 8 classrooms. They have also been experimenting with new techniques on the schools farm by growong vegetables in bags. This requires less water, the plants grow faster and they are less prone to disease!

Next stop is Uganda to check out some activities for Quest Overseas new exciting expedition as part of our Kenya GAP trip departing in January 2010. On the list are visits to monkey island and white water rafting. Watch this space for updates on our Kenya and Malawi Summer Projects over the next few weeks!
