White Rose Organization

We believe that a child’s future success and advancement in life is greatly influenced by their early educational experience as those who have go to school early develop an interest in education more than those who have not participated in early learning education – learning how to get along in groups, work under teacher supervision, etc. They also receive encouragement to express their feelings and ideas through building, dancing, and drawing, playing, singing and speaking. And thus, at the end of their pre-school years, they have become more competent pupils and will be more advanced in some of their abilities and be ready to master their new environment in primary and secondary education.We are located at Sanawari village -Arusha. We hope that through volunteers support we can save and give lighter through education to our children for future and other generation.

Going to Africa to volunteer with the white rose org has been one of the best experiences in my life. I can't thank enough for everything, there are so many things you can choose to do that you can have multiple experiences in schools, projects, teaching, etc. Marko is an amazing person to work with who is always there when I need it working until the end with us for the kids, the host family was very nice and welcoming. I feel very grateful for find this NGO, meeting Marko, all the kids, the host family, the volunteers and all the people who are like family. Asante Sana love you all ❤🇹🇿

My experience as a volunteer with White Rose Organization was amazing. I have no words. My host family (conjepta and her sisters and mother) was amazing and i felt at home form the beginning. They were really friendly and caring and the best cookers ever.
The school (sammena school) was amazing. I love every moment at the school with the kids and the teacher. I really recommend it

I volunteered for two weeks and it was an impressive experience. I really appreciated the possibility I had to live Africa immersing in its culture: going to school with children, meeting local people, staying in a magic family eating their delicious food and feeling their love and affection. The school was a bit too far, one hour every day for each travel :/ but the people working there are all amazing and lovable. And my host family was simply perfect: I had my room so I had my privacy, but everyone was caring a lot about us. I mention only some problems with the organization of th Safari...

Marko and Sam are very flexible and relaxed hosts. They can organize anything that you ask of them in Arusha. The accommodations were excellent, safe, and the food was also delicious each and everyday. The 4 weeks with them went by very quickly. Mornings at school, evenings in the library. I taught at two schools because there was an incident (the fault of the first school not having proper paperwork), so I experienced several different environments. I highly recommend teaching at Sameena Primary School. A great introduction to volunteering and wonderful experience in Tanzania. Asante Sana

An incredible experience in terms of working with children, getting to know the local culture and being part of a family. I felt one more for 1 month.
Regarding the organization and the hosts, I must say with great respect that Sam is more present than Marko, we already discussed the subject and he knows the things he needs to improve regarding his commitment and organization.
Definitely an experience that will make you change the way you see the world and you will learn something new every day.
