New Chapter Development for Youth
A traveller should choose to volunteer at our place because a traveller will benefit from a cultural exchange in brief from gaining temporary staff who usually recommend the travellers to their family/friends and also return in the future to travel which continues to boost the economy. The cultural exchange will give visitors to Tanzania the chance to tour tribal areas to meet the people and experience their traditional way of life. Through the programmes and projects, a traveller also experiences indigenous attractions and scenery of rural Tanzania.
For the Traveller who wants to meet fishermen, cultivators, local minors, wildlife scouts, rainmakers and story-tellers, the land between Serengeti and Lake Victoria is the place to be because our organization is in Mwanza Region and neighbouring regions are Geita to the west, Shinyanga to the south, and Simiyu to the east. Furthermore, Lake Victoria borders the region's northern frontier, thus a traveller will be able to get a chance to learn the local culture, language and even learn how to prepare different foods that have a natural Tanzanian. A traveller will also have the opportunity to take a boat trip in Victoria zone. We will also be able to connect travellers to our partners who are tourist companies to visit many different tourist sites (tourist attractions).
A Traveller could
1. Learn More About Tanzania
When living in Tanzania you will get to integrate into the local culture, experience what the country and people are like and see places you have probably only seen before on television. You will also get to meet local people and tell them about your country. These types of cross-cultural exchanges really are beneficial for all people involved.
2. Make New Friends
You will get to meet locals and other participants from all over the world. You will form strong bonds working alongside other people and thousands of people from many different countries.
3.Boost Your Career
This is one of the most important things, you will get to build professional relationships, learn from experienced staff and boost your CV. When you apply for jobs in the future and you have the experience of working with the local community in the United Republic of Tanzania on your CV this will look amazing to prospective employers who generally look at this experience in a very positive light.
It is no slight thing to come and work in Tanzania independently, you will build self-confidence and self-esteem which are some of the most underrated things to happen when on a cultural exchange. There are so many things you will also improve including adaptation, flexibility, you will learn Swahili, You will also get a sense of accomplishment when you complete an experience(certificate).

During the weekends, a traveller has free time to relax or take the opportunity to explore Mwanza, wider Tanzania and Eastern Africa. Long weekends can be taken to travel further afield (Lake Manyara-Serengeti-Ngorongoro Creator-Tarangire) or to embark on a safari. Sunday is a religious day of rest. If you wish, you can accompany your host family to their local church, as a Tanzania church service is a unique and special experience for many volunteers.
Mwanza -Tanzania is an incredible place steeped in culture and beauty - don't miss out on some of the coolest sights in Africa!
