Tanzania welcomes you with open arms, or adorable little hands, as we see in this photo. Photographer, Tom McCarthy spent the Summer weeks of 2016 documenting moments from various student travel programs in Tanzania. An inspiring moment of a little boy showing a recently-constructed classroom with a new friend is seen here.

Tanzania is home to over 56 million people and is often known for its expansive protected wilderness areas such as the Ngorongoro Crater and the plains of Serengeti National Park. It is home to Africa’s highest mountain, the famed Mt. Kilimanjaro, and the beautiful islands of Zanzibar.

The little boy seen here is peeking out from the door at the primary school in a rural village called Mang’ola Juu, located at the edge of Ngorongoro Crater, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Inside the crater is a thriving ecosystem of lush forests, vast grasslands, and a freshwater lake.The famous Big Five game animals – lions, leopards, elephants, cape buffalo and rhinoceros – all make their home here.

Back over to the primary school, students are seen arriving and filling the classrooms in the early morning. Two little boys playfully clap their hands and sing a tune. Another younger child is seen shyly hiding behind an older friend. They all wear uniforms, with colored sweaters dependent on their grade. Girls are seen wearing blue skirts to their ankles and boys with tan shorts past the knees.
