WEEDO-Women Empowering and Entrepreneurship Development Organization

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.

I did my internship (2 months) at WEEDO in the field of communication. It was an incredible experience, far beyond my expectations. I learned a lot in so many areas…Everyone, the staff, the girls and Rehema were very kind and welcoming to me. Rehema is a very nice person, very welcoming, she made me discover a lot of things. I created great relationships with the girls and if I had to do it again, I would definitely do it again!
I am happy to have done my internship with this organization. Kigamboni is a very nice place to live and there is a very beautiful beach nearby.
Thank you WEEDO! :)

Teaching at WEEDO was a beautiful experience since the girls were really welcoming, loving, and eager to learn.

The open communication with Rehema and reoccurring feedback meetings made me feel supported and in good hands.

Also the ongoing optimization of processes in the organization showed that the positive longterm impact on the girls is the number one priority and not taken lightly.

Overall, I was able to learn a lot about the culture, connect with locals, and share lots of beautiful moments I will never forget and thought me a lot.

First of all Weedo staff is very nice tracking your arrival and helping.

Then, you really get involved with the culture. People is so nice.

I was teaching basic computer to the girls and felt so happy to see their progress.

It was sooo hard to say goodbye.

I recommend to anyone that really wants to get immerse with Tanzanian and African culture, know other volunteers, bond with the girls/students and staff, and help in empowering girls.

Pd. I did 1 month only but recommend to stay at least 2. To have better progress with girls/students.

Love you Weedo

I'm happy to say that I see the WEEDO community as a family, I am so grateful to be part of it. To teach and also learn from the foundation. Rehema is a very hardworking and amazing leader, and the view that she has for WEEDO gives me a lot of hope. I will come back for sure, and im always thankful for the warm welcoming and making me feel at home.

I’m grateful for the opportunity to be part of this amazing organization. The main mission is to provide young women with skills they can use to be independent and support themselves. WEEDO really cares about the girls there and everyone is very opened to new ideas that could help with achieving their mission and goals. I wish I could have stayed longer and do more. The location was perfect, you can immerse yourself in the local culture (I recommend going for a run with the local community even if you're not a runner) but you’re also close enough to the city. A life changing experience for me!
