EXPEDITION CONGO FOR EDUCATION
On February 2nd, 2016 three members of the Healing Seekers Team (along with 12-15 guides, porters and Pygmy trackers) will explore an undocumented area of the Republic of the Congo. The 50-60 day expedition will be the most intense and difficult one to date; yet the resultant materials will be part of school curriculums and content in distribution venues for generations to come.
The expedition aims to immerse students into the unknown and into the rawness and purity of nature and its indigenous people.
Team Members for the Expedition will be Esteban Barrera (Healing Seekers videographer, wilderness survival expert, and guide since 2006) , Wil Weldon (videographer, producer and editor) and Amy Greeson (Team Leader).
It is our belief that a true education extends far beyond the typical classroom / textbook experience and broadens hearts as well as minds. Our contributions to educators and school systems would not be possible without your financial contributions.
