Looking for a community service adventure next summer?  A trip that combines making a valuable contribution to the world while seeing the beauty of East Africa?  Africa School Assistance Project (ASAP) builds schools in rural Tanzanian villages and each summer leads groups of volunteers to work on the schools. ASAP is currently seeking volunteers for school building trips in June 2018. We welcome adults and children alike—anyone with an adventurous spirit and a big heart!

 

In 2018 we will be working in a rural area outside of Arusha, Tanzania to build, expand and enhance school facilities for school children of the area.

 

Volunteers will live in a beautiful, secure campsite in the foothills of Mt. Kilimanjaro.  The area is lush and the altitude keeps the temperatures in a comfortable range.  Our fees include every expense so nothing is left to pay for once on-site.  The campsite is fully staffed and volunteers are served three delicious cooked meals per day and 100% bottled water.  Camping toilets and warm water for bathing is provided.  Volunteers will spend their days working on building the schools, and will spend their evenings under some of the most stunning stars visible from anywhere on earth!

“I feel so lucky to have traveled to Africa with ASAP, and to be a part of the amazing work they are doing. There is no better feeling than holding one of the primary school students hands, looking into their smiling faces, and knowing that your work is quite literally changing their life.”

High School Student Trip (June 8-20, 2018) *THIS TRIP IS FULL FOR 2018

High School Student Trip to Tanzania: June 8-20, 2018

Africa School Assistance Project, together with Kent Denver School, is offering an exciting community service opportunity for high school students in 2018!  This 12-day community service adventure to Tanzania combines a volunteering to build a school in a rural village with rich cultural immersion focused on sustainable development in East Africa.  We will explore the six pillars of sustainable development including education, human rights, conservation, health, food security and economic systems.  And, we will finish the trip with a safari into one of Tanzania’s most iconic game parks!  Students will be chaperoned at a minimum of a 5:1 and will receive 50 hours of community service.  The trip cost is $5,400.

 

We are pleased to offer 1 scholarship to a deserving student.  Please submit your completed Scholarship Application by February 15, 2018 or email us at Info@AfricaSchoolAssistanceProject.org if you are interested or if you have questions about your eligibility.

The trip will accommodate a maximum of 14 volunteers.  For more information, please email or call 303-881-3081.

Friends & Family Trip (June 10- 17, 2018) *THIS TRIP IS FULL FOR 2018

ASAP volunteers for this trip are families with children, groups of friends or single adults, all of whom want to experience the beauty of Africa while building a legacy of education for hundreds of children.  And, Tanzania is the perfect place to add on a safari in some of the best wild animal preserves in the world! Volunteers for the Family & Friends Volunteer Trip are required to pay their own travel expenses, including a $1,000 fee for the week in the village to cover local transportation, supported camping, three meals a day and bottled water.  We also ask that each volunteer donate or raise $1,500 to help fund our school projects (this is separate from the fee as it is 100% tax-deductible).

The trip will accommodate a maximum of 14 volunteers.  For more information, please email or call 303-881-3081.
