The exchange is a way to get in touch with people whose world is completely different to our own, by taking an active role in the students´ lives you´ll get to know whilst in Tanzania. Get to know each others language, interests, habits, traditions, music, food, hopes and aspirations.

Participants Taking Part

The people, who will benefit from this are the teachers and the students, whether they are Tanzanian or Italian, who will be enriched both personally and culturally by a deep and profoundly real experience.

In order for students to make the most of the trip, we often suggest that the corresponding classes are about the same age.

The classes are bound to the exchange, for an essentially undetermined duration of time. The duration of the stay is undetermined, and is only decided upon when when all parties involved meet.
Classes are committed to regularly exchange different kinds of equipment, setting a deadline at the beginning of the experiment, we point out, may take several years, according to the real possibilities of the parties concerned.

Plan for the exchange:

1–      exchange of photos and letters talking about the both classes in the schools – can include drawings

2–      exchange of stories, personal experiences and questions. Both classes take part and tell stories about set characters and topics explanation of what each school is looking for in the exchange music recordings from each school using instruments, song etc drawings on set topics.

3–      Definition of potential needs of the partner school and fund raising

4–      Each class set to music on a cassette, with its instruments (instruments, pens, voice, etc..), the tale of the other class, and vice versa, and sends it to the class that created the story

5–      Production of drawings on a specific topic (peace in the world, for example): the Italian school will draw half of a design which will then be completed by the partner school, and vice versa
