The Experience

The volunteer teaches his language from Monday to Friday a few hours per day. The students are motivated to improve their skills, especially in English. They are also interested in learning other languages like Spanish, German, Chinese, etc. Usually, up to fifteen students attend the classes. We prefer that the volunteer does a session in the morning (around 10 AM) and one in the afternoon (01 PM). The session is about one hour.

I found Turnbull College when I researched my route from Lusaka (Zambia) to Moshi (Tanzania). The project is right halfway through the Iringa region. Everything was a big surprise for me: the small town, the community, the project and especially Daudi the host.
Daudi has a big heart, he was super careful and considerate to the point of becoming a good friend. He is responsible for the project and works very responsibly. If you can, don't go through the region without visiting this project first. I really recommend.

Actually my friend Tayke was a sociality person here in Iringa, he helped us alot how to have a strong connections with the community around the college, how to have a big team about our project, expanding the project everyday through students and other people out of the college and finally linking with the institutions, companies, colleges, Schools and an oprhanage centers. We are appreciate more his great work he has done about our project in Iringa. Thank you Tayke for coming at our college, please welcome again next time although we still in contacting each other.

Daudi is an excellent host! Nice and talkative. It was my first time in Africa and he really took care of me. He was always caring about my safety and wanting me to enjoy the Tanzanian life. He wanted me to be happy and to enjoy every time. I felt really welcome!
About the volunteer activity, Daudi is really open to let you do whatever you want for help. He let me to be free to choose.
I started teaching Spanish language, but after a week, the student had holidays. So after that, I helped them with some administration stuff, what I really enjoyed to do.
Thank you! And see you next time!😃

This was truly a one-of-a-kind experience. I never thought that I could potentially make such a big impact on the lives of the students and locals in Iringa. The eight weeks that I spent volunteering in Tanzania has changed my life for the better.
Daudi (the host) has such an amazing heart for people, volunteers, students, and all of mankind. he always goes out of his way to ensure that his volunteers are safe and supported.
The students at turnbull are welcoming, kind, and such a pleasure to teach and learn from.
Asante sana kaka kwa uzoefu wa ajabu kama huu. Nitaipenda Tanzania daima
