Elliot’s Experience on a Me to We Trip

Over the summer, I travelled with Me to We on a 16 day trip to Tanzania. I travelled with 25 other children (ages 15-19) to experience daily life in Maasai communities and help with the sustainable development on the communities that Me to We partners with. During the trip, I learned about the history and culture of the community, learned Swahili, met members of the community, helped families with their daily tasks to learn about their way of life and to support them, and our build site project was building the foundations of a previously started school (the organization had already built 2 rooms and we built the foundations for the third). I really enjoyed getting to know other kids who wanted to make a difference in the world, spending time with community members as our tents were actually inside the community, helping out the community, and having fun. I think this was a great way to make a difference and enjoy doing so, and I hope I can go on another trip with Me to We to another one of the countries they partner with.
