First Impressions: JBFC’s Summer InternsJune 28, 2016 11:21 am
“It’s a beautiful campus full of smiling, friendly people that all seem very committed to the mission of the organization!
I was surprised by the complexity of the campus and the extent to which sustainability influences structures. I was not expecting to see English being used and taught all over campus, and I am excited to grow closer to the JBFC girls as I work closely with them in several projects!”
I’m surprised by the innovativeness of the campus (permaculture, solar power, gray water systems, etc.). I did not expect to have the great, mutually beneficial conversations with students and teachers that I’ve had. I’m most excited about leading a Nature Lab Club and creating the seminar for teachers.”
I’ve been most surprised by the mostly Tanzanian employees (which is great), the extreme heat, and all of the livestock on the farm! I am excited to learn about new cultures and see more of Africa.”
I’m really surprised by the campus layout – I expected it to be much smaller and closed off to outsiders. I did not expect such interconnections between JBFC’s four mission areas – refuge, education, agriculture, and healthcare. I look forward to experimenting with new crops and techniques in the garden.”
