The entire day was amazing! Throughout the whole day, we got to do a lot of fun things. We loved the buyu, souvenirs and darajani trips that allowed us to check items off our buying list. Our trip to forodhani included us eating shawarma, ice cream and the special Zanzibari pizza.
Overall, we visited 2 different mosques and ended the day with maghrib jamaat namaaz at the mosque too. Our mentors were with us throughout and it was very fun being around different people and culture. The restaurants and all the other visits were very fun and we loved the day.
The day was very beautiful and the outing was well planned. The day started off with Fajr Salaah. Thereafter we proceeded with breakfast. The mentors were very well organized and groups were made in accordance to elements groups.
The trip started with a Spice Tour where we learned about different spices and its’ benefits. We then had Juma prayers along with lunch in respective mosques in Stone Town. The main excursion program then began by campers forming free groups of 5 with one lead mentor.
Some groups started off with some refreshments and visited Darajani where kids were able to get in some handy shopping for themselves and check items off their shopping list. Next was the visit to the famously known buyu place where kids placed orders for themselves and their families. Lastly, all groups met together at Forodhani where they were able to eat foods of their choice.
We then gathered everyone together and walked back to mosque for Salaatul Maghrib. The groups then dispersed into elements again, regrouped in the bus and finally went back to the camp.
The event included a lot of learning for myself in terms of time management, communication skills and inclusivity in incorporating the Zanzibar culture. I was able to bond with the kids efficiently by playing on their strengths.
I am grateful for the time that I was able to spend with them and I loved getting to know how they use their communication skills towards the outside world.
