First of all, our place is located in semi-urban, one of the benefits is to have experience in the village and the city at the same time, we are close to the beach, It's only less than 40 minutes to be at the Dar es salaam city center. We have more than 20 and less than 30 girls in the center, Our staff speaks good English and they are so kind. For us volunteering is not only about working but also learning and experiencing other cultures, can be able to visit some local traditional houses and community and you can be able. Our staffs are so kind, committed and trustworthy. we offer an outreach program whereby our guests will get an opportunity to visit several families to share and exchange ideas about life, sport, and the way of living this includes culture and traditions. it's easy to make new friends and expand your network.
We are friendly, committed, trustworthy, and hard work, we are available 24/7 to guide and give assistance to our guests. we are happy to give explanations or clarification over issues that are not understandable.
Weedo is a organization where you immediately know that the people really hard-work, they are very organized, the girls are motivated and open minded to whatever you want to teach. The place around is very peaceful and very local, I love it. The volunteers house is big and very close to the school. I could say that they can improve in food and provide basic thing like toilet paper and drinkable water. The rest was perfect! Thanks a lot

Rehema es una increíble mujer, que ha formado WEEDO, para mi fue una experiencia increíble, poder aportar en este hermoso proyecto que trabaja para empoderar mujeres, además tuve la libertad de poder crear mis propias clases y enseñar lo que yo sé, nutrición y salud. La casa donde me quedé esta al lado del colegio, pero ambos están un poco alejados del centro de Dar es Salaam. Si necesitas algo es importante la comunicación, Rehema siempre esta abierta a escuchar, por lo que no esperes el último día. La única dificultad fue que las niñas no hablan tanto inglés,pero están aprendiendo ;)

WEEDO was one of the most organized volunteers I did in Africa. The team is very professional and willing to receive new ideas that transform the lives of the girls at the school. I would return without a doubt and I hope that more people can continue to contribute to the beautiful work of the organization!

My experience at Weedo and living with Rehema was incredible. I got to meet so many beautiful, young and strong girls that are eager to learn. They showed me what it is like to live in Tanzania and to be a part of their culture. Every girl that I met is searching for a better future and being a part of that was amazing. I recommend this volunteering experience to anyone, especially when it is your first time. The people are kind and so helpful. Thank you Rehema and all other Weedo girls!

Rehema is an amazing woman and host, she is kind, open-minded, very respectful and smart. She works hard to provide a brighter future for the girls of her organization and is genuinely happy when there is a new opportunity for these girls to improve themselves and be actors of the future. I had the most wonderful time teaching English to these girls, we played, laughed, and learned from each other. I felt a true connection with them, they are so special! Working with an NGO such as WEEDO is serious, but it is also so humanly enriching. This first volunteering made me grow; I am so grateful!
