Join a Working Team at the school in August!

In August a working team will be travelling from Australia to help the school build furniture for the new boarding school and the secondary campus at Usa River.

The team leaves Australia on 18th August and will fly back on 11th September. They will be spending around two weeks working at the school, going on a safari for 5 days and heading to Zanzibar for a few days rest.

The team still has a few spaces, so if you would like to be part of a really enriching and rewarding experience, now is your chance. You can look here to see what previous working teams have achieved at the School.

Don't worry, you don't need to be a carpenter or even a Rotarian to join - just hardworking, willing and enthusiastic!

What a GREAT way to find out more about a new country and new culture! You can get a local perspective on the School of St Jude by checking out Anthea's blog. She was born in Africa and lives outside Arusha with her farmer-husband and three teenagers. She says:

Ask any child in the West what they want and they’ll be hard pressed to decide between latest iPod or designer trainers. Ask an African child and they’ll tell you that more than anything in the whole wide world – they want to go to school.

In one of the poorest countries of the world, Tanzania, this is only possible through the help of people like you. Make it happen!
