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.

Being part of this project was a life change experience to me. It was incredible! Marko helped me even months before I went to Arusha and still helped a lot there, including when we were looking for safaris, etc. he became a friend - Rafiki as they say :)
My host family was great, don’t have anything to complain about. I miss everyone already!
The other volunteers made the experience even better. And I don’t have words to describe how much I loved the kids. They really need our support! I recommend for whoever is interested to do that.
Asante Sana!



It was an amazing and incredible time I spent in this project. I couldn’t imagine how deep this would be. First I went to help children in the library, teaching Math and English, but was me which learned a lot with them. The children are lovely, smart and happy all the time.
Marko is a great guy that afford the project with Sam, they have all my respect and admiration, cause they’re trying to do those place a better world for the kids.
I had a wonderful host family, Conjepta and her children took care of me with love.
For sure it was the best experience of my life.
Asante Sana, Tanzania!



Tras mi primera experiencia de voluntariado en África, sólo puedo recomendar esta organización y animar a todo el que tenga inquietud por estos temas a lanzarse y encontrar la manera de ir. Yo estoy dispuesto a responder cualquier duda.
La primera semana puede que sea algo caótica por la cantidad de cosas nuevas pero luego es realmente sencillo manejarse tanto en el colegio como en la biblioteca, además la familia de acogida estuvieron siempre pendientes de mí y compartiendo su tiempo.
He aprendido infinidad de cosas que ya forman parte de mi.

Asante sana Tanzania na ninakuona tena!

I spent 4 weeks in Arusha working as a volunteer and its was an amazing experience. The work with the kids is something that I will never forget, I miss them so much. The NGO team was also amazing, specially the girls in the library, they help you out to get used to teach and deal with the kids. A part from that, I could experience a real tanzanian life, living in a host family with great people and also all the fun you can have during the weekends like safari and other tours. Anyway it was an unforgetable exeperience and I would 100% recomend.



Undoubtedly, an amazing experience that completely changed my life.
The work that Marko is doing with the library is so beautiful and the participation in the schools was also absolutely amazing. Children are extremely affectionate and kind. In addition to all this the country still has its wonders.
Highly recommend the experience !!!!
