My experience with the Samaritan volunteers was good! It felt like a home away from home, however as the previous comments say - keep in mind that most of the times there is no running water and the electricity shortages happened often. Working hours are respected and the kids are amazing. The staff that takes care of the house is nice and kind, and the cooked meals were simple but good. Life in Chamazi is simple, and there is a lot of beauty in that. Would definitely recommend the experience!

Thank you for your feedback and we really appreciate your opinion and respect too. We have shortage of power ( electricity) in all the country. Running water depends on the electricity , if we don't have electricity means we will also have shortage of running water. We have this problem in the country for almost 3 consecutive months and we hope soon the Government will solve it and life will get back to normal

Thank you for all the Great experience we shared together with our children and we had the best memories of you



My boyfriend and I had an amazing time at Samaritan!! The children are truly amazing and really get into your heart. The accommodation and food was really basic, so don't expect to be in a hotel resort as it sometimes was really challenging. It was great meeting other volunteers from around the world and we would totally recommend gaining this special experience you will cherish for a life time

Thank you for your feedback and we real appreciate your opinion and respect it too. Better for volunteers to understand that they will not expect to be hosted in a hotel or Resort. We do everything possible for our volunteers to have good accommodation with every basic needs .

Thank you for the great experience you shared with our children and we still have the great memories of you



The experience was truly heartwarming. From the first day I was warmly welcomed by the children as well as the teachers and Emma and Jackson. Working with the children was wonderful. They give you so much love and look forward to seeing you! (There are four different schools, including a muslim school, so remember to bring the right clothing for cultural and religious reasons). The working hours were respected, and it was never a problem to get a day off for weekend activities. In our free time Jackson always helped us to organize activities and was always there for us. Asante Jackson ❤️

The experience as a volunteer was wonderful. I had good moments such as: inserting myself into a different culture with another language, developing my English through teaching and contact with other volunteers, connecting with the children. Volunteering is in a remote area of ​​Dar Es Salaam. So, problems common to this reality were periodic lack of running water and energy. Emma and Jackson's attention was excellent. I felt safe and supported for whatever was necessary. Communication is always attentive to the needs of volunteers and they are always open to improvements. I recommend.

Volunteering was a remarkable chapter in my medical career. For 3 weeks I had the privilege of working with other doctors in various departments of local hospital, including emergency department, surgery ward and OBGYN. I gained a lot of practical skills and had the opportunity to care for patients with tropical diseases. Beyond hospital walls, the organization's flexibility allowed me to explore the organization's beauty and culture. I spent my free time visiting the city. Dr William introduced me to the hospital director and ensured I had a supervisor during my time at the hospital :)
