Sarah’s Tanzania trip
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.
