We live in a quiet village which is near Mwanza city, the second largest and fast growing city of our country, Tanzania. The area is home of the Sukuma Tribe which is the largest tribe in our country. Volunteering at our project gives our volunteers opportunity to visit this place as much as they can during their free time. Also the volunteer can get a chance to visit Saanane Island, the marvelous Island found in city area. We care for less fortunate children at our centre and this is a noble cause which our volunteers really like to leave a mark to the lives of these kids through volunteering. The future and development of these kids are in jeopardy and we are the only hope to create a better future for them, so, a volunteer to these kids is a family member and not a stranger. The early childhood care and education is a new concept in our educational system through out the country, when someone decide to volunteer at our centre he/she is the really help and needed one and very unique. By volunteering at our place, a volunteer can get a chance to go for a Safaris or tour at an affordable cost with reliable companies under Sawil Pax Tours and Safaris Packages.

I was born in 1986 and my father refused to take his parental responsibility since my mother informed him that she is pregnant. My mother struggled a lot with me to give me the nonetheless education I have. I discovered myself how hard was it for me to get education and this made me to think about helping the most destitute rural children. I am a charming and open person working day and night to find a way to make these kids realizing their dreams. I have a very nice staff and any volunteer who have already met them and our kids always feel so happy and wanting to be here with us. We are all cooperative to our volunteers and care for them so much because their time with us mean a lot.

This experience changed my life. Meeting William and the kids in the project was a giant call from society to me on how to life a better life and how to be more grateful for everything. The hours at school are longer, but William is super flexible on adjusting it into you. He was like a big brother to me, constantly making sure I was ok. He is super polite! I am so glad my first experience with the Worldpackers was there, because it was amazing!




I would recommend this experience to anyone who wishes to see more of the world. William will give you a feeling that you are home. I was only here for the minimum period of 2 weeks, but still had a rich experience. I met lots of people in Williams circle and went around the city with locals. Definitely a nice break from everyday life, and a worthwhile cultural experience. If you are unsure about teaching, you can help around the school in other ways too, such as writing homework or playing with the children

William treated me like a brother while I was here. He is very passionate about helping the kids. If you have an idea for the school he is always open to suggestions. And if there is something you want to do on the weekends he'll help you find a way to make it happen.




My experience in Sawil Pax was memorable and incredible. I helped in the school teaching to kids from 3 to 6 years, they are loving and always with a smile. The country is beatiful with incredible people, and I always felt very safe, comfortable and welcome during my stay in Mwanza. Williams is an great man and host, he always helppened with anything I needed and the family made me fell like at home. We also had free time to enjoy and do some tourism. I recommend this project to everyone who wishes to live, help and learn in a different and excellent way. Please feel free to contact me.




They do a great job! William is really dedicated to his projects (the school and an women equality's). The school stuff are friendly. Some times the communication was not absolutely clear (Kiswahili mainly speaking). But it was always with a smile and laugh that we communicated.
I can say the children’s have the best conditions that these people can give to them!
My participation was left free. I choose to see all the 3 levels for the matter of English and numbers. I hope I helped more than bothering :D
At William’s home I felt at home! Confortable and happy :) family live.


Perfect for you if you're looking for
