So here is part two of the ‘what’ section of my project :) This section focuses on my journey to Tanzania in 2016 to see what has been achieved and to bring back reflections and photos of the ‘finished’ project. It is at this point that I seek to have the networks all working well together so that I can reduce my direct involvement and focus on other projects that I have on my list however I will always be in-touch and involved with what is happening and supporting the progress of the project to see the learning-pods implemented across Tanzania and beyond :)
Phase two of the project will be my visit to Tanzania in 2016 (December) where I will visit for 3 weeks with yLead. On this trip I will spend time with Gemma Sissia and the School of St Jude, the State Schools of the Moshi Region and the broader community. I will also be spending 6 days summiting the impressive and challenging Mt Kiliminjaro as a tangible reminder that nothing is impossible - just like this project! I will get to visit the State Schools in the Moshi Region where I will see some of the learning pods that we have installed and I will be able to see the progress and involvement of students in the child driven education revolution! From here I will return with all the reporting and observations, blog posts and tweets that I was able to make during the trip to do a final report to everyone that has supported this project and its journey! As I mentioned above throughout this project I will be working to to create a process that is self sustainable through networks and experience so that I can take a back seat and remain in touch with the progress of the project whilst also persuing other dreams of my own! This is not just my baby it is the joint baby of everyone who has supported its progress no matter the level of involvement :)
WOW what a journey! Again I am filled with the fire of inspiration and excitiment about this project and we are only at the beginning!
Thankyou, as always, for you continued love and support!
