Learn a new language, sustainability skills, and more with Maasai people in Tanzania over the summer!
SERVICE LEARNING, SAFARI ADVENTURES AND ZANZIBAR ISLAND WITH THE MAASAI Sustainability skills and climate change: On this trip, students will see firsthand how the Maasai are adapting to climate change and diversifying their livelihoods. We will learn about the water issues in this area and how the Maasai manage their resources during a drought. While living in the village, we will become aware of the challenges facing many Maasai as they attempt to continue a pastoral way of life in an increasingly harsh and dry environment. Service Learning: By working with others and fully engaging in a service-learning project, students gain an understanding of the Maasai culture and language. And hearing the sounds of an unfamiliar language exposes us to another way of expression, opening up a new world. Cultural immersion is always a part of Gogi Abroad programs! We have found that this is the best way to feel fully connected to a place.
