In July 2016, Building Bridges traveled to Tanzania to construct a school building in the Maasai community of Simanjiro in northern Tanzania. This was completed in partnership with The Mccombs School of Business at the University of Texas.
Program participants spent four days and four nights in the village of Simanjiro. While in the village, students worked each day on the construction of an additional school building to support the original complex constructed by Building Bridges in 2014.
Prior to working in the village, volunteers spent two days on safari viewing the famed African wildlife and Tanzanian landscape. The trip impacted the MBA students through the friendships forged and lasting memories made.
