Samaritan Education Centre

Volunteer with us is the perfect way of learning our culture while contributing to our community. Through our project you will not only have the opportunity to volunteer, but also to experience our everyday local life, get around using local transportation, browse markets to find ingredients to cook local food, enjoy exercise and football at the community grounds. All of these are great ways to learn our culture, practice our language Swahili and engage with local people.

Our community is situated in South Dar Es Salaam about one hour from the city center. Our main goals is educating and motivate children from low income families to have equal opportunities of getting better education for their better future Dar es salaam is the biggest city in Tanzania with the population about 5.5 million people . Children and youth are approximately 50% of the population . In most local families there are many children who are not motivated to go to school even their parents have no motivation to take them to school therefore you will see many children in the street loosing opportunity to get education One of the main tool to give them another perspective is to have volunteers who will help to teach English, writing, mathematics, science, computer programs for the youth, arts, vocational skills and sports as well as to motivate education in our community Since we started "Samaritan Volunteer Project" we saw alot of changes and motivation from the parents to take their children to schools and also for the children now they like to learn new things from our schools Help required: ​In the Morning: Teaching children our three local nursery schools (age 4 to 6 years old) from 8:30 am to 12:30 pm .As a volunteer you will assist our local teacher to instruct children , English language, mathematics, writing, reading ,arts ,vocational skills , sport and games In the evening: About 50 children and young people attend our school .

Best experience of my life!!! I can’t wait to go back!!!❤️



I had an amazing experience in Chamazi, where I felt included in the community from the very first day. Emmanuel and Mama took really good care of us volunteers and made sure we were a part of their family. Staying in Chamazi was an experience I will never forget also because it gave me great joy being in school with all those smart and happy children. I highly recommend the Samaritan Education Centre - the only regret I have was staying for only 3 weeks..



They experience was so amazing! We learned soooo much! The relationship with the kids was beautiful. Emma, Happy and Britty are a wonderful family, so helpful and so much fun!
Music and sport clases were so intense and productive, people were really interested and showing high compromise.
We really recomend this experience, ir made us grow a lot!
Thanks Emma, Happy , Britty and all the people from the school!



I had an amazing time in Chamazi! Emma and his family is so kind, show us all about their culture, specially the food, that was delicious! Also, I loved the time spent with the kids, teaching them English, or even, just hanging out and playing!



It's a life time experience! I spend my best times doing this project.
