18 May Honour Trip in Kenya
Twelve students recently returned from a magnificent trip to discover Kenya, its wildlife and the Maasai people and their traditions. The students saw the work of a Trust which works to preserve wildlife while helping the the Maasai and their herds but at the same time taking on the difficult task of fighting against female circumcision and reduced access to schooling. The students and their teachers visited a school with 1000 pupils some of whom had walked for several hours for their education—and this while staying in a eco-friendly lodge. All in all, an extraordinary Honour Trip well off the beaten track of traditional African safaris.
