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,

My experience was so amazing in all possible ways!
Being with the kids changed my life and I will never be the same. Spending almost a month there was enough to make me fall in love with them and the country and allowed me to make so friends as well.
Go prepared for the library, there are a lot of kids but it's worth it.

My host family was so nice to me and made me feel at home despite being in a totally different environment and culture.

Marko as well was always there to help me, check on me and make sure I was okay and enjoying everything.

Everything was a bless!

This experience was memorable and incredible! the mentors of the project, Sam and Marko were super kind and helpful with every detail and with all the volunteers, they were always available to help with any problem.
My host family was also very friendly and kind to me, they made excellent dishes (except the fried and cooked bananas). ^^
Volunteering in the public library was undoubtedly essential and very important in that small village, because there are many children with serious learning difficulties.
Were three very gratifying weeks, I only regret for not having stayed any longer ...

I was a volunteer for two weeks. I had never done any volunteer work before. The experience was exactly what I wanted it to be. I got to stay with an amazing family and I got to help and teach the kids at a school. The number one reason I wanted to volunteer in Africa was that I wanted to get to know the African culture and experience every day African life. Volunteering with The White Rose gave me precisely that. I taught 2-4 lessons, each 40 minutes every weekday before lunch and one longer lesson in the afternoon. The best thing for me during my weeks in Arusha was hanging out with my host

A fantastic experience made even more memorable by Marko and his family)) The placement in Shining Star was above what I expected, the teachers, students and the girls that made the porridge every day made it worth getting out of bed for. Thank you to Marko, BibI, Conjepta, Ellia, Rede, Rita, Deborah, Abe, Damian and everyone in the Sanawari area for taking us in and looking after us like your very own family. To Sam in the library thank you for all the help with Kiswahili)))) The little people there and at school I will miss...…..a lot. asante and poka poka my Tanzanian family.

It's another awesome experience to host a Spanish guy to our project and he's perfect, Charming, and so fun to all people in our village and so friendly to our children's. I will recommend 100% to other host and you will not regret to work with him. Asante sana for your help in our library and wish all the best for your future success.
