Freedom & Unity, Tanzania

Back to overview

The culture subject Freedom and Unity, Tanzania is a new cultural subject. Freedom and Unity or Uhuru na Umoja in Swahili, Tanzania's motto, explains the idea behind the culture subject. Tanzania is located on the east coast of Africa.


In the end of the 19th century, and the beginning of the 20th Tanzania was part of German East Africa, after World War 1, the territory was transferred to Great Britain and from 1961, Tanzania has been an independent country. Tanzania is approx. 20 times as big as Danmark and has approx. 10 times as many inhabitants. Tanzania is an incredibly exciting country with a diverse culture and rich history.

We travel to the northern part of Tanzania in the area between Zanzibar, Mt. Kilimanjaro and Moshi.

The purpose of the trip is to meet a completely different culture than the most of us are used to. We will work with Tanzania's history and culture and experience and live with students from a local school, and also live privately with them. We are going on a trekking trip on Mt. Kilimanjaro. We must all read and work with Jakob Ejersbo's triology of Africa (Exile, Liberty and Revolution). We will also all try to learn some Swahili.

In the culture subject we will work with UN Development Goals No. 4, 7 and 12 that deal with education, sustainable energy and responsible consumption and production.

The precise description of the cultural journey is not fixed, but will be created in close cooperation between learners and teachers.
