I’ll be offline for the next 10 days. Not because of workload or technology issues. But because I’ll be living with the Masai people in Northern Tanzania.
Global Leadership Adventures has a new program that is only on our web site (not in the course catalog) – Masai Bush Camp.
I’m leading a group of students and faculty from the prestigous Pembroke Hill School in Kansas City on a customized version of this program. In addition to the standard program we’ll also go on safari in the Serengeti to see the wildebeest migration.
However, the Masai Bush Camp program is primarily focused on community service and learning about the Masai culture first hand. We’ll volunteer to fix up the local school and possibly also a water well for cattle. In the afternoons we’ll meet with village elders, learn about their social structure, and even how to throw a spear, herd cattle and make beads.
I’ll post photos and post-program updates upon return. In the meanwhile, read more about the Masai here.
