It is important that volunteers at this project understand the following;

Tanzania is a peaceful country but is old-fashioned by Western standards. Be enthusiastic and independent and willing to accept that things can be challenging at times.
Show respect towards the people and culture of the local community. The people of Tanzania are some kind religious, so prepare yourself accordingly.
At all times, follow rules regarding clothing and appearance. Tanzania is the tropical country and therefore hot. It is not as strict as the Middle East, so you can dress coolly but modestly, with limbs, knees, and shoulders covered if possible.
