Why do we travel with bus to Africa?

The bus is one of our learning tools. It’s cared for and driven by students and teachers. It is our base to gather, reflect and discuss. It gives us the possibility to get close to the local realities, when traveling you slowly observe the change of environment and culture. It helps us to become global citizens.
