2023 PZ Donor Trip with NEW Option!

We are happy to announce that Project Zawadi, in partnership with Access 2 Tanzania, will host TWO Donor Trips this November/December. In addition to the classic “Safari & Service” option, we have developed a “Service Only” option that runs over the same dates:  November 25-December 9, 2023.

Safari & Service: This journey will start with a wildlife safari through Tanzania’s greatest wildlife parks including Serengeti National Park and Ngorongoro Crater. To the west of the Serengeti lies Project Zawadi’s partner community of Nyamuswa. It is in this rural community that you will support the English Bridge Program for one week.

Service Only: This option has volunteers arrive at the same time as the “Safari & Service” group but instead of going on safari to get to Nyamuswa, you will fly to Mwanza and be transported to the village. This option allows you to support the English Bridge Program for two weeks instead of just one week. At the end, you will fly back to Arusha with the rest of the travel group.

Each year, Project Zawadi offers the English Bridge Program for students in the Nyamuswa area who are transitioning from primary school (where instruction is in Swahili) to secondary school (where instruction is in English). This six-week intensive course is held at four local schools with English teachers leading lessons designed to prepare students for English-language instruction in secondary school.

A specialized English Bridge curriculum has been developed with our staff and volunteers. Travelers on the Project Zawadi Donor Trip will have the opportunity to support the program by participating in daily conversational English sessions. Our staff and volunteers will have specific lessons prepared for members of this travel group. The travel group will also be hosted in country by Project Zawadi’s Executive Director and Founder, Brian Singer.
