Kuzuri Tanzania

Whilst volunteering with us you will have the opportunity to live with a local family and experience the traditions, language and culture of the country first hand. We will welcome you into our family with open arms. As well as having the choice of volunteering at one of the schools/orphanages that we support, we are building a community center that we would love you to get involved with. This is a unique addition to the community to support education and at local people in need of support, that is an exciting and fulfilling opportunity.

For five years myself and my family have hosted over 200 volunteers from many different countries and backgrounds. We love having volunteers here, because not only do they make a huge impact on our community but they enrich our lives. I enjoy matching people with a project that will help them feel fulfilled whilst arranging activities (like safari, mountain trekking and visiting hot springs/massai village) so that they have the best time in our country as possible. My family love cooking local African food for our visitors and we enjoy learning new western recipes. We love to show volunteers around Arusha and introduce them to our culture and traditions. When we aren't working or exploring I love to learn all about local animals and vegetation, cooking or enjoy a good movie.

La familia Kissiri es simplemente una de las familias más amorosas que he conocido en mi vida. Desde el primer día en que llegue me trataron como parte de ella y se aseguraron que estuviera bien cada día. Me gustaría recomendar esta experiencia a todos los usuarios en esta plataforma. Volvería a elegir este lugar muchas veces más.
Gracias James por todo!

My experience at the Kissiri house was incredible! Very nice place with all kind of things needed and lovely family, allways attentive and willing to help. I really felt welcome as one more in the house :) Also the projects to volunteer were very nice and I really felt that I was contributing to something good. Full flexibility to decide when and in wich project to help and also to organise the leisure trips. I am definetly looking forward to repeat!! Asante sana James and Kissiri family! :)

Recomiendo totalmente esta experiencia. James es un anfitrión de 10. Él y su familia te acogen, te preparan el desayuno, comida y cena, y te dan una habitación y un lavabo para ti. Te ayudan en todo lo que necesitas y están muy atentos a que todo vaya bien. Puedes ayudar en un colegio local, en la granja de la casa o en un orfanato. Según el día nosotros ayudabamos en un sitio u otro, lo puedes combinar como mejor te vaya. Incluso puedes ir a dos sitios en el mismo día. Fuimos con el respeto de no saber qué nos encontraríos, y volvemos con ganas de más. Asante sana Kissiri family!

Una experiencia vital e increíble que no se puede explicar con palabras!! La familia Kissiri te hará sentir desde el primer momento como en casa y te acogerán como a uno más de la familia! Harán que tu estancia allí sea muy especial! La experiencia en el orfanato fue muy emocionante y sin duda lo que más me marcó. Poder compartir amor y cariño con todos los niñxs que te enseñan tantas cosas y te llenan el alma de amor! Ya los echo mucho de menos a todxs!! Estoy deseando volver!!

I certainly had an amazing stay, was fed so well the food was delicious and comforting. I enjoyed being on the farm on a nice cool sunny day without distractions…just picking crops and learning what it takes to be self sustainable. Definitely recommend this Host!
