The jewel of our program here in Tanzania is the month-long rural homestay. Our students stay with Tanzanian families in villages located a few hours from the city. They learn to fetch water, cook traditional Hehe food, carry firewood, farm with a hand hoe, play with children, and much, much more. Along with participating in daily life and volunteering for a local non-profit, they also complete a self-designed research project looking at some aspect of development.
Here are some pictures from our latest village stay:
