The Experience

We are a small family-run Organic farm and supply fresh product to Markets. We have a huge variety of fruit & vegetables along with herbs and native/exotic plants. It is very important to us that there are organizations like ours, that can influence the population, people from our community and from different places can come to know our organization and our farm, bring their children, they can see animals and see how vegetables grow sustainably.

James and his family are the most welcoming and nice hosts I have ever seen. I felt at home since the first day I met them. I could learn so much about Tanzanian culture and their daily duties. My plan, first of all, was to help the school with English and sports activities. But since it was at the end of the school year, I could only help them for a couple of weeks. The other two weeks I was able to work on the family farm, which had helped me to learn more about it and also to see the family routine. It was an amazing experience that I recommend for everyone.

It was an amazing experience! The whole family is superb. It is possible to help on the farm, in the construction of the library or to give lessons to students. An adventure rich in emotions, with the possibility of hiking, safaris and much more. The food is great and local, James is attentive and always ready to help, as well as the whole family.

James and his family are really nice hosts. They treated us like their family.
We share our stay with other volunteers and this is so great because this team work allows to make a better impact. You can help the local primary school in the morning and play with the kids at the boarding house in the afternoon.
I suggest you to prepare lesson in the topic you like (science, maths, English, arts, civic, history, etc) and you will have the chance to teach this to the kids.
