Arriving early for a meeting, Tanzania women join a “brick brigade” with Norwich students and other volunteers working to build a boys’ dormitory at a residential and vocational training center for orphaned youth. A dozen NU students and staff spent three weeks in the central Tanzanian village working on the long-running community development project, the fifth such trip since 2012. “The women showed their appreciation for what we were doing by jumping right in to help,” says trip participant Shannon Benway Werlin ’06. The service-learning trip was organized by NU’s Center for Civic Engagement and supported by a grant from the TAWANI Foundation.
