THE STORY:

In February 2015, 5 students and two staff members from the British International School of Boston traveled to Tanzania for two weeks, volunteering in a small primary school and developing a sustainable farming site.

The trip was part of a service learning trip from Nord Anglia Education, a global family of 41 premium schools. The students from Boston worked with local company Summits Africa to develop a permaculture project in a small village called Engare Sero near Tanzania's Lake Natron.

With the help of the Crowdrise community and the British International School of Boston community, the students raised more than $12,000 to fund this work. And since their time in Tanzania the sustainable garden has been going strong, offering vital food and nutrients to the students and staff at the village school.

The money raised was used to purchase seeds and farming equipment and hire a permaculture expert to advise on sustainable agriculture practices. 

You can read more about the students' time in Tanzania, and the work that the money raised helped to achieve, by visit the British International School of Boston blog:
