    Descriptive info: The Kalahari Experience is a service project initiated by Frankfurt International School (FIS).. Since 1991 teams of people have been working with the Tswana people in the Moshaweng Valley in South Africa.. The Kalahari Experience is currently managed by Ambrose Kelly OAM, the Director of The Kalahari Experience at FIS.. The Moshaweng Valley is an isolated area in the Kalahari Desert approximately 100 kilometres north of Kuruman.. Most of the 10 villages in the Moshaweng Valley are accessible only by unpaved road.. Many of the people in this area are not original residents, but were displaced during apartheid.. They were sent to this semi-desert area that is now home to approximately 30,000 people.. It is one of the poorest areas in South Africa.. 1.. Education is a fundamental right that empowers people to improve their opportunities and quality of life.. 2.. International service experiences build trusting relationships and global partnerships across diverse cultures.. 3.. Service experiences must be collaborative, sustainable and committed to creating life-long learning and self-sufficiency.. 4..

    Descriptive info: 2009 will be the 4th year that Concordia has travelled to the desert to be part of this unique experience.. In June 2008 a team of 14 people from Concordia College joined 43 others from around the world to serve some of the poorest communities in South Africa.. The Kalahari Experience is an opportunity for students and teachers to work in partnership with the schools of the Moshaweng Valley located at the southern end of the Kalahari Desert.. The Service Learning program at Concordia College is built on the charter for Social Justice in Lutheran Schools.. Principals of equal worth, equal voice and equal opportunity underpin the charter.. We believe that all people regardless of their status in birth have the right to just treatment in society, the right to be heard and the right to education and resources.. The Kalahari Experience in 2009 will involve eleven students and teachers from Concordia joining other team members from FIS, Australian schools, United World College in Singapore and team members from New Zealand.. The team will be based at the Moffat Mission in Kuruman, some 700 kilometres from Johannesburg in the southern Kalahari Desert.. The task will be to deliver a revision program for Senior Students in preparation for their exams.. Additionally, we hope to deliver Professional Development workshops for the teachers and administrators of Moshaweng High School.. We believe this will form the foundation of a sustainable program for the people of the Valley.. Our team provides a winter school to prepare the  ...   a degree and another to complete a diploma.. The scholarships have been made available through the generosity of the Rosemarie Foundation.. Going to the Kalahari Desert was and will remain the best experience I ve ever had.. Before leaving Adelaide I was hesitant about what the people would be like and had heard many stories about how unsafe we could be.. However, the people of the desert were some of the friendliest people I ve ever met and they made us feel more than welcome right from the start.. I was amazed to see just how much we had in common with the students.. They chat in class, rock up a few minutes late, pay each other out and have fun just like we do.. The only difference is that they are so much more willing and eager to learn.. At home we are stoked if we get a day off school, while in the desert they would be devastated to miss school and they go to any lengths to get there.. There was one student whose parents have both died recently and she was left to look after her two younger sisters with no income.. She wakes up at 4am every morning to walk 17 km in sub-zero temperatures, just to get to school.. When she gets home she eats boiled maize with her sisters, but only if she has the energy to cook it.. This is sadly a reality for many of the students in the desert.. - Natalie Ahrens -..
