A BIG SHOUT OUT to all CAStars who are initiating their own projects this year…
You’re feeling it, envisioning it, articulating it and most importantly DOING IT!
Here’s a sneak peek at what’s being hatched:
Yakuta and Sumana run English and Art workshops for grade 4 students at Mbuyuni Primary School, Masaki every Tuesday
Will is reaching out to local artists and communities to collaborate on mural projects through Change-ism. With clear short to long term goals in mind: “I would like to impact the community and possibly inspire young and budding artists…I would like for the activity as a whole to grow to be something more than just a school project, and achieve goals that I can not even imagine at this moment. Impacting communities to a level where they receive media coverage and thus further aid would be a dream come true. ”
For the Love of Football, Abdul and Fahim are leading football training sessions for high schoolers on the pitch every Wednesday from 2-3pm
Henry and Nikhil are planning to create a Dar based internship database to help DP students find work experience during school holidays
Kyle and Toby, who have years of sailing experience, will be running a Laser Sailing course at the Yacht club on Wednesdays from 4-6pm at the Yacht club. The course will start after the October break.
Inspired dancers, Pihu and Nora will be starting a dance activity for high schoolers and Venetia has already started her dance troupe, in collaboration with dancers from other schools in Dar. We are looking forward to seeing some serious DANCE performances and collaboration from our inspired DP dancers!
Nicholaus is leading a new service activity- Football for Kids– which will take place on Sundays from 2-4pm. He will be continuing his personal project work with keen footballers from Tabata and is getting plenty of other DP footballers involved too!
Timi and Sheikh are planning to support Football for Kids through their IST based Tournaments for Change project.
Another amazing personal project that is being continued through to CAS this year, is Oumou’s. This year, twice a month, Oumou will be running more Sanaa ya Henna workshops with girls from the Bugurini school for the deaf.
Agnes will be continuing to produce tasty treats by pursuing her passion of Home Economics. Through her project, she hopes to support CS groups in their catering needs for interactions from her very own kitchen!
And, finally… watch out for The Crew, led by Bosko. This will be the all new, campus media project (think: FML- the next generation!)
