We are very pleased to announce the launch of the Tanzania 2020 International Scout Expedition.
In the summer of 2020, we are aiming to take around 144 Explorers, and 30 leaders to Tanzania, to work on up to 6 community projects (such as hospital and schools) in remote and rural locations.
Come and join us in this expedition of a lifetime, for an amazing experience, the chance to help others, to work as a team and to have loads of fun.

The expedition can be used for some aspects of the QSA / DofE award scheme (but not the residential element).
It also looks outstanding on CV's for jobs and Universities.
One parent from 2017, has told us that when her son mentioned to a potential employer that they took part in Tanzania 17, and helped build a school in Tanzania, they were immediately given an application form for a full engineering apprenticeship, as this will help him to stand out and was what they were looking for in amongst the 2,000 applications for 50 places.
The expedition is being run under the ISSU as a UK National Scout Expedition.
