Photos + Video: Service and Learning in Tanzania 2016

June 15, 2016

Six Finlandia University students and two staff members traveled to Tanzania in May for the 11th annual Service and Learning in Tanzania experience.

During their three weeks in Tanzania, students participate in curricular and co-curricular activities at Kisarawe Lutheran Jr. Seminary (a secondary school), shadow nurses at the national hospital, and stay with host families. These relationship building opportunities along with accompanying reflection activities help students grow in their understanding of Servant Leadership and engage in self-exploration.

Below are several photos taken on the trip, and a highlight video made by sophomore International Business major Walker Enstad.

Walker Enstad manages to hang on during a wicked twist of the mechanical bull at Fun City Amusement Park in Dar es Salaam. Unfortunately he didn’t hang on for the three minutes required to win 20,000 shillings (about $10)!

The Houghton High School Interact Club raised $2,500 for the purpose of purchasing text books at Kisarawe Lutheran Jr. Seminary. René Johnson delivered the funds to the Kisarawe administration who promptly purchased 365 books. René ceremoniously hands some of the books to Elijah, student body president, in front of the assembled students.
