A CLEVEDON woman has returned from a life-changing expedition to Tanzania.

Sarah Loughlin visited the country as part of a five-year school rebuilding programme and took part in a project at Lotima Primary School.

The 28-year-old former Clevedon School pupil worked as part of a team of 15 to completely refurbish five classrooms from unusable, dangerous and dark areas into bright, clean and safe learning environments with colourful wall paintings.

The team also re-concreted the school and upgraded the headteacher’s office.

The school rebuilding programme has been organised by green services provider, Eaga, and Childreach International.

Sarah took part in the expedition as part of an Eaga staff development programme.

She said: “This was a life-changing experience and one that I would not have missed for the world.

“I’ve come back from this a different person.

“It is a humbling experience and one that makes you realise how lucky you are.”
