Exploring Tanzania: A Cultural Exchange

Exploring Tanzania, Africa

We are thrilled to share an exciting event that recently took place at our school. John and Gwen Cicone, two missionary representatives from the Rafiki Foundation in Africa visited our campus. They engaged our middle school students in an enlightening discussion about life in Tanzania and the educational experiences of students there.

During their visit, the missionaries provided captivating insights into Tanzanian culture, offering glimpses into the school culture and the unique traditions of living abroad. Our students were enthralled by the rich tapestry of life in Tanzania and were eager to learn more about this fascinating country.

The exchange not only broadened our students’ perspectives but also fostered a deeper understanding of global cultures. It was a remarkable opportunity for cultural exchange and learning, highlighting the importance of empathy, curiosity, and open-mindedness.

As part of our ongoing commitment to global education, we are excited to announce a cultural exchange partnership between Dr. Lena Edwards Academic Charter School and the Rafiki Foundation in Tanzania, Africa. This partnership will provide our students with further opportunities to connect with their peers in Tanzania, fostering friendships and mutual understanding across continents.

We look forward to embarking on this journey of cultural exchange and learning. We must thank DLEACS Board of Trustees member, John Seazholtz for his introduction to the Rafiki Foundation and for his invaluable contributions to our school community.
