As a requirement for our Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award program, we will be going for our second expedition (Bronze level) from 16th October 2017 to 19th October 2017.
This activity equips our students with team working and leadership skills, gives them a chance to give back to the community or those in need through community service (students will donate some household items and food to some members of the local community) and improves on their survival skills well as enabling them to be more independent (they will be preparing their own meals, sleeping in tents etc.)
We will be going to Fort Portal in South Western Uganda. This will allow the students to experience some of Uganda’s unique tourist attractions like the Crater Lake, Rift Valley, the famous Mabere Ga Nyinamwiru, and part of the Rwenzori Mountain Ranges.
Students will be accompanied by trained leaders from Duke of Edinburgh, Kampala who will be supervising and assisting them with each aspect of the expedition.
The trip will take four days/three nights in total. On the first day, we will be traveling to the campsite. The following two days will be spent trekking the 24 kilometers required to qualify for the Bronze Award. The fourth day we will return to Lubowa.
