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.

My name is Marko Silas and am work with White Rose Organization and i'm volunteer coordinator as my position.

This experience has been wonderful.
The reality in Tanzania is very different from the European, but I never felt alone.
Marko has been very kind and helpful since the beginning.
He always takes care of the volunteers. I felt more than welcome.
The host family has been my family for all 3weeks. Lolita, her mum and her daughter are simply lovely.
Different and delicious food every day, the room with shower and toilette is clean and comfortable.
Asante Sana!!!

Disfruté desde el primer día que llegué a Arusha. Es una experiencia inolvidable. El anfitrión y la gente que me hospedó siempre pendientes del bienestar de uno, muchos lugares por conocer y disfrutar en los fines de semana, y los chicos tanto del colegio como de la biblioteca son excepcionales.
Personalmente me tocó un colegio que se llama Sammena, que si bien era un poco sacrificado el día a día porque estaba lejos y se debía viajar mucho, lo recomiendo totalmente, los profesores son gente magnífica y se crea un vínculo muy estrecho con ellos y los niños. Excelente

For me, the experience of working with the kids from Arusha that came at the library was not an easy one, bc they came so many most of the days and there were only two of us to try to respond their needs, whoch were different at every kid, because they were different ages and some maybe wanted to learn some math, other English and i could only work well with only one at a time. So it could get quite exhausting. But still, it was so fulfilling when after explaining a thing 10 times they finally got it or when they were jumping with joy when i was marking all their answers as correct they were b

Lo mejor fueron los niños. El poder conectar y estar en compañía de ellos es lo más gratificante de la experiencia.
Las tareas como voluntaria no son muy claras, ya que te desempeñas más como una asistente que como una maestra. Sin embargo, el solo hecho de ayudar a estos niños, aunque sea corrigiendo sus tareas, es más que satisfactorio.

Mi paso por Sanawari fue una muy linda experencia. Lo disfruté mucho! El lugar es muy lindo, rodeado de ríos y verde. La gente del lugar es muy amable, cada vez que caminas sus calles se te acercan para saludarte y saber de vos.
Me recibió una familia increíble, desde el primer día me sentí como en mi propia casa. La experencia en la escuela fue muy buena, los chicos disfrutan al recibirnos y aprender con nosotros. La biblioteca recibe muchos chicos del lugar y es muy lindo verlos llegar con ganas practicar lo que aprenden en sus escuelas.
Recomiendo mucho esta experiencia!
