Bodhisattva Conversations with… Philippa Jacobs (Podcast)

Philippa Jacobs is the founder of Champion Chanzige.
A charity which strives to make small sustainable changes to the educational environment for young people in Tanzania.

In this podcast Philippa  tells how she took herself off to Tanzania in 2013.
She spent ten days in a primary school and the idea that was to become Champion Chanzige was born…!
Philippa had spent the previous 10 years working in UK schools – and although she expected there to be big differences between the schools – she was not prepared for the lack of basic teaching resources and the terrible state of the classrooms. 

The attitude of the children inspired and motivated her, and in this podcast she speaks of their joy, their happiness and their enthusiasm to learn…

Philippa knew deep inside her that she had to try and help.

I have been running all of my life – it feels I was born to run. In the running step I experienced freedom and my true expression.

I have also worked in the lives of others as a guide, counsellor, healer and teacher for over 40 years.
