I have done a lot of volunteering, but I have not met a host that is as kind and as generous as Jemma. I enjoyed getting to know some of the other people in the village. The children were amazing. They were hungry to learn. It could be challenging because of lack of materials. This can be solved if you carry some paper and a couple of pencils with you. It also helps if you plan your lessons. Thank you for Priska for taking care of me as well. You are the best!

Thanks so much for being satisfied with our service
Welcome again



I've been thinking about what to write since this experience had everything. Of course, I want to thank Jema and his family for making me feel at home. Regarding the the school, there are a lot of needs, but the hostel project that Frankie started is going great, the kids are fun and some are eager to learn while others just want to have fun and play all day. I think this experience will make you value everything a lot more. For me, it was an honor to be the first Mexican at the the school. The only 2 things I will not miss are the mosquitoes and the ugali (Sorry Tanzania ๐Ÿ˜‚)

My experience volunteering at the the school has been blissful that I extended my stay for another week, because I feel like the month flew by real quick and needed more time to spend with the kids and to also improve my Swahili a little bit. Thank you Jema for the lovely opportunity to volunteer at the the school.

We had a incredible experience ! Full of adventures, safari, hiking, waterfalls... Children are full of happiness and love. Jema helped us a lot, we feel very confortable (miss you shemeji.) About the school, students have to learn a lot so you can help them ! They need books, pens, clothes... You need to buy your own water and data, (cheap), and there is Turkish toilets (no toilet paper)! You must try Mama Fadhila's samosas (neighbor), delicious ! Ps : I started a paint project in the classes to bring them a better environnement, I hope next volonteers can finish this project ! Asante Sana!

Jema and his family have become my home away from home! I felt so welcomed and comfortable, was well taken care of by mama P, loved my days at the the school (even if they are a little longer than stated), and have made friends and connections for life. I have had such incredible experiences at the school, visiting waterfalls, visiting Masai and visiting Mikumi national park! I was nervous about travelling solo for the first time, but it has been an invaluable experience. I will be returning as soon as I can!!
