Zanzibar is famous for its pristine beaches and beautiful scenery and it is no surprise that more tourists are flocking to the island year on year. Unfortunately, the benefits of this are not shared with the majority of Zanzibari residents. Education is significantly underfunded and this results in huge overcrowding issues in schools. Many children's access to an education is literally halved due to schools not being able to accommodate the incredible number of students trying to fit into the small, and limited number of, classrooms. Schools are having to run a morning program and an afternoon program, a less than ideal solution. African Adventures is committed to build new classrooms to allow more children to attend school and receive a free and full-time education, which will vastly improve educational outcomes.
We are so excited to announce that we have recently launched our Youth Development Programme for young people aged 16-19. This programme gives you the chance to meet new people, discover a new country, and make a meaningful difference at our partner projects in Ghana, Kenya or Zanzibar.
