The Experience

We believe that a child’s future success and advancement in life is greatly influenced by their early educational experience as those who have go to school early develop an interest in education more than those who have not participated in early learning education – learning how to get along in groups, work under teacher supervision, etc. They also receive encouragement to express their feelings and ideas through building, dancing, and drawing.

This experience has been wonderful.
The reality in Tanzania is very different from the European, but I never felt alone.
Marko has been very kind and helpful since the beginning.
He always takes care of the volunteers. I felt more than welcome.
The host family has been my family for all 3weeks. Lolita, her mum and her daughter are simply lovely.
Different and delicious food every day, the room with shower and toilette is clean and comfortable.
Asante Sana!!!

For me, the experience of working with the kids from Arusha that came at the library was not an easy one, bc they came so many most of the days and there were only two of us to try to respond their needs, whoch were different at every kid, because they were different ages and some maybe wanted to learn some math, other English and i could only work well with only one at a time. So it could get quite exhausting. But still, it was so fulfilling when after explaining a thing 10 times they finally got it or when they were jumping with joy when i was marking all their answers as correct they were b

I had an amazing five weeks volunteering here! The work can be tiring but it is amazing and so worth it. There's is heaps to do on the weekends and in your spare time which Marko will happily help you to organise if you need to. The families welcome you like one of your own and catered perfectly for my vegan dietary requirement. I would highly recommend coming and feel free to ask me any questions :)

Indescribable the energy that these children are able to transmit to us ... they are happy with very little and this makes us rethink many things about our lives. I came with the objective of teaching, but without a doubt I learned the most during this 1 month that I was here.

Asante sana Tanzania!!
