The Experience

Three minutes walking from our volunteer house is a Nursery School where 35 children between 3 and 6 years of age study. The school was founded 3 years ago and there are two teachers. Children in this school are very smart and eager to learn from our volunteers: they make you feel comfortable and it's fun when you teach them! Children are separated into two classes according to their ages. There is a baby class and a high class :)

My experience at the Samaritan Education Centre was amazing. Emma with his family received me very well, and I really feel as being in my home. THe project is very nice and before that, I have never ever been in a Volunteer program. I learned a lot with Tanzanian People, how they live, how they work and how happy they are, even without a lot of resources. It was one of my very best experience in life, for sure!

I had an amazing experience in Chamazi, where I felt included in the community from the very first day. Emmanuel and Mama took really good care of us volunteers and made sure we were a part of their family. Staying in Chamazi was an experience I will never forget also because it gave me great joy being in school with all those smart and happy children. I highly recommend the Samaritan Education Centre - the only regret I have was staying for only 3 weeks..
