History and Culture of Zanzibar

Spending the day with talented youth, who grew up in the SOS children’s village, is an amazing way to experience another side of Zanzibar!

Together, we visited the slave market and prison island, learning about the history of the island, and these two places had a big impact on us. Ending the night on a brighter note, we enjoyed traditional music from Zanzibar.

Still, the learnings were heavily influenced by our visits to the two landmarks on Zanzibar:

Trang: “See the world for what it is, not what you want it to be. We are born equal, we die equal – so we should live equal.”

Kate S.: “We cannot rewrite history, but we can build a better future for the next generation.”
