I’m Hana, and was a volunteer at The School of St Jude, a school located in Tanzania, Africa. St Judes is extraordinary – it is a school that offers impoverished students an education they would have otherwise not been able to attend. Each child is sponsored, and have access to resources for sports, art, music, computers, science experiments, a library, things that we take granted for at home, but are accessible to these students who otherwise wouldn’t be.
The aim of my blog is mainly to connect La Jolla Country Day School, located in San Diego CA – with the life here at The School of St. Jude in Tanzania, Africa. The middle school and high school students sponsor two students at St Jude: Emmanuel and Swamirat.
From 2012 – 2013, I implemented a leadership program, gave tours to visitors from around the world, and facilitated after-school sports. I had the opportunity to update students from LJCDS with the life I lived, and incorporate what I learned into their own curriculum. It was also how my friends and family were updated.
I welcome everyone to peek into my life that I had in Africa, as many supported me being here.
Thanks to all, and please feel free to comment!
Love, Hana aka Hanako
