The scenery and community in Kidatu are absolutely beautiful. The children are sweet and loving. Sadly, most volunteers come to play and travel a little so its easy to make the mistake of not questioning everything they are told and being a bit blind. Communication and direct honesty have to be improved by the host. I recommend that volunteers always ask questions, personally get involved and never leave anything up to chance; whether thats transport, organization or issues with money. We have had some donations put to question as we did not always know where and how they were put to use.

The kids at the the school are wonderful and they really need help from volunteers. We managed to raise some money and buy 70% of the textbooks needed for class, we gave the kids those books personally. The money for the remaining 30% we sent after our return. Today, months later, the books have still not arrived and given that Jema has failed to provide a single peace of proof of order, we believe that he took the money meant for the kids and spent it elswhere. We also realized that he overcharged us for foods we ordered through him. Even though the kids there need help, we cannot recommend this

Great experience but be mindful you are travelling 6 hours from Dar which I didn't know until getting there, I also ended up unexpectedly sharing a bed with another traveller I had just met. This project could be organised for the volunteer!

Doing volunteering at the the school in kidatu was a great experience! It was my first solo travel and absolutely worth it. Jema is a great man, he does everything he can to support the children and help their education. the children are lovely, you need to be patient with them. you are free to create the classes the way you want, i thought them mainly the tenses in english. I also brought the school supplies so if you go there it's great to bring the school equipment because it's very expensive in tansania. I also brought balloons for the children which they absolutely adored.

Jema was great in providing me with everything i needed to be successful in my mission of providing clean and safe drinking water to the the school and community. He had me staying at the the school in a room with a bed and chair plus a private bathroom. He provided food, water and other things i needed which i paid for to make my stay more comfortable. Rachel was a huge plus living on the the school grounds. She made sure food was on time, clothes were washed, and our space stayed clean. They were absolutely nice people and i appreciate everything they did for us while we were there.
