AAC Voluntourism Trip to Zimbabwe
Matobo Hills and Hwange
Zimbabwe is a country rich in wildlife and pristine ecological surroundin gs, one of the few places in the world where it’s possible to see the Big 5 in pristine wildlife areas. The uniqueness of this project arises from its truly magnificent ecological surrounding coupled with the communities living around Matobo and Hwange. Mother Africa is established to assist communities and conservation near Amalinda in Matobo Hills including WhiteWaters and Ethandweni. Children in the Wilderness is active with the Ngamo and Ziga communities around Hwange Park, situated near to their safari camp, Davison’s.
And that we did! We sourced over 6 large duffel bags of Grade 5-8 books for both schools we visited. We acted as a “connector” in the classrooms and community helping the next generation of children in Zimbabwe who are the future of their country.
We all came away with a mutual acceptance of one’s culture, beliefs and the lives they lead.
