Kuzuri Tanzania

Whilst volunteering with us you will have the opportunity to live with a local family and experience the traditions, language and culture of the country first hand. We will welcome you into our family with open arms.

As well as having the choice of volunteering at one of the schools/orphanages that we support, we also have a community center that we would love you to get involved with. This is a unique addition to the community to support education and local people in need of support, and it is an exciting and fulfilling opportunity.

For seven years myself and my family have hosted over 200 volunteers from many different countries and backgrounds. We love having volunteers here, because not only do they make a huge impact on our community but they enrich our lives. I enjoy matching people with a project that will help them feel fulfilled whilst arranging activities (like safari, mountain trekking and visiting hot springs/massai village) so that they have the best time in our country as possible. My family love cooking local African food for our visitors and we enjoy learning new western recipes. We love to show volunteers around Arusha and introduce them to our culture and traditions. When we aren't working or exploring I love to learn all about local animals and vegetation, cooking or enjoy a good movie.

Since I came here everyone has been treating us volunteers like part of the family and it creates a very safe space especially for people travelling alone. The idea of community center is amazing all the kids are very grateful and it’s visible they’re happy to go there everyday and learn. You can help alot here, but you will also learn alot from locals about their culture and language as well!Couldn’t dream of better place for my first volunteering experience.Biggest thank you to the whole family Mama, James, David, Faraja, Dr. Betty (best cook ever) and also Daudi for making my stay amazing❤️

I want to recommend this experience 100%, the school where you go every morning is close to home and the experience with the children was fantastic
In the afternoon you can dedicate your time in the structure near home which welcomes children from the area to help them to study and doing homework
James, Betty and mama are amazing people! They will always make you feel at ease and you will be able to eat delicious dishes! I formed an excellent relationship with them and now they are like a second family to me ❤️
Asante sana nawapenda ❤️

I had such a great time at Kissiri House! I’m so grateful for James for being so kind and organizing everything so flawlessly and for the nice accommodation. For Doctor Bethy for being so sweet and making the best meals ever. She really felt like an older sister, ready to help with anything you need. Also, thank you to Faraja & Mama Kissiri for helping me feel so at home. I loved working at the school and especially at the library, I’m going to miss the children so much! It was such a beautiful way to meet and talk with locals and explore Tanzania’s beautiful culture. Asante Sana!

I would recommend this experience to anyone, seeing the kids at school and helping them is really touching and fun, especially when you get to know them more, they’ll get comfortable and will ask for more help, same goes for the teacher who needs to know you before giving more and more things to do.
James is very kind and will organise anything to make the stay comfortable, he’s definitely someone you can count on.
Betty (his sister) will make you feel at home and do everything to help you get comfortable ! She’s also very fun !
The accomodation is really nice !
If you hesitate, don’t !

I had such an amazing experience! I would 100% recommend you going, James and his family are so so nice and sweet and it really feels like family by the end of your stay. The kids are also so sweet and you can see that they are helping the kids! Missing them already, but definitely an experience worth having :)
