On our first full day the photography class spent the morning at the Olasiti Orphanage where students sewed and beaded with the children. The afternoon was spent with the orphans visiting Shanga, a company that employs disabled workers who make jewelry and crafts out of recycled materials. The group also explored Africa art from ancient masks to contemporary pieces at the Arusha Cultural Heritage Museum. The Wildlife Conservation group traveled to the Asogati Plains to experience the unique fauna of the Somali ecosystem. The group searched for the Beesley’s Lark; only 50 exist in the world, and they found not just one but five. In total they found over 50 species of animals including their first megafauna such as zebras and ostriches.
