A trip to the Gambia has been described as life-changing by students at Canterbury College.
Twenty-four second year students on the BTEC extended travel and tourism course went to the West African nation for a week, giving books and stationery to impoverished children.
They met tribes at Tumani Tenda, a self-sufficient eco-village, and visited Ibnu Taimiah Primary School, an orphanage and nursery. They also discussed travel and tourism with students at the International Business College in Banjul.
Travel and tourism tutor Graham Dwyer said:"Our students were very moved by the state of the school, nursery and orphanage, which are unbelievably poor."
