Want a life change experience? This is the right one.
This was my first Worldpacker by myself and I couldn’t have chosen a better one. From the family to the community everyone is really nice. In this experience you are able to make the most of what you want, if you want to spend your afternoon exploring the city you can, or you can also spend your days playing with the local kids.
After 3 weeks in this life changes experience, I strongly recommed it to everyone.
Asante Sana Kissiri Family!
I never felt in that way before, this was for sure the best experience of my life.
This experience made me change a lot and it made me become a better person and I will always be so greatfull to this family and to all those kids cause they’ve chenged the way I look at things.
I was the one who had to come here to help, but insted they helped me. I never felt so loved, among other things by people who have received little or not enough. I invite you to spend some time in this village, cause the place is just amazing, the hosting family is just the best you can get and the kids adorable!
If you would like to leave an impact and feel the love of sharing knowledge and joy? Then this is the best place to do it. You have the chance to stay with the local family and you exchange on a high level. It feels like being a new family member and you are well taken care of in all matters. It was my first volunteering experience and I would do it again without a doubt. James is not just any person, he becomes your true friend.
It was the best experience of my life. The kids from the orphanage and from the school are so lovely, the teachers are very polite and you feel more than welcome. You have a very flexible schedule so you fell very free. The host family is the best one in Tanzania, they do everything to you feel at home, the food is amazing and the bedroom is very nice. And it was possible to visit a lot of attractions in Arusha. If I was you I'll confirm my trip right now.
