Tanzania leaves imprint ALASTAIR LYNN Eighteen Auckland teenagers have a new perspective on life after a trip to Africa. The group from Hebron Christian College travelled to Tanzania. The school has been going to the New Life Foundation orphanage in Moshi since 2005. Students have raised more than $400,000 for the organisation in that time. Pupil Brittany Collecutt says the trip gave them a chance to see the money being put to good use. ‘‘We just went over to help out as best we could,’’ she says. ‘‘They were so blown away that there were people as far away as New Zealand that want to help.’’ The orphanage is home to about 300 children and 70 staff. The 12 hectares (30 acres) of land surrounding the facility is used for agricultural purposes but there are plans to eventually build a university. ‘‘It’s a really big operation. Sometimes they struggle to pay their staff,’’ Hebron Christian College principal Geoff Matthews says. ‘‘Each year we try to take something over. This year it was $12,000 of medical supplies.’’ The luxuries of Auckland life took some getting used to after three weeks in a very different environment. ‘‘It just shows that we take our development in New Zealand for granted,’’ student Zac Turner says. ‘‘Just being able to turn on the tap and have water right there was weird to come back to.’’ Joshua Scott got the oppor- tunity to meet a child his family had sponsored for the past 10 years. ‘‘It was just amazing being able to meet the family that we had been helping for so long,’’ he says. The group members agree they’ve had a new perspective on life. ‘‘They were all so accepting and welcoming,’’ student Brittany Denyer says. ‘‘Hopefully we can be more accepting in turn.’’ Experience...Negotiating...
