Who Lives On Mount Kilimanjaro?

The Chagga people have lived on the slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro for hundreds of years, they believe the mountain is holy and treat it with respect. However, since the area was given National Park status in 1970 there has been a sharp increase in hikers. With 18,000 hikers a year and 54,000 porters the Chagga people and their mountain are starting to feel the strain. The students imagine they help run a primary school in the countryside of Tanzania. Many families living in the area find it difficult to afford school uniforms, shoes, books and lunches which results is children skipping days at school or not coming at all. The students have been tasked with trying to double the attendance at the school with the aid of an additional £15,000. What would they spend this money on and why?

What Is The Future Of Everest Base Camp?

What Is The Future Of Everest Base Camp?

Mount Everest has two base camps; one on its south side in Nepal and one on the north in Tibet. Located on the south side at 5,360 meters is Nepal’s South Base Camp, situated within Sagarmatha National Park and is also a World Heritage Site. This camp is very basic but used by climbers during their ascent and descent of Everest. This trek is one of the most popular routes in the Himalayas and is hiked by thousands of people every year. The students task is to imagine a proposal has been made to build a more permanent settlement at the Everest Base Camp. They have two tasks to complete: - Task One: A written piece of work detailing the views of the different groups using the area, including your own point of view - Task Two: Drawing a detailed plan of your idea for a village which would suit the groups who use the Everest Base Camp and the facilities they would need. Your choice of design and facilities will need to be explained.
