Volunteering is the best way of learning the Tanzanian culture while also helping those in need in the local community.  We arrange volunteer placements at a variety of different projects falling under a number of categories. The volunteer projects fall under teaching, help kids in orphanages, women projects, youth enterprenuership projects, drug abuse and HIV/AIDS. For now we organise volunteering placements in two cities, Moshi (Kilimanjaro) and Dar es Salaam. So if you want to experience the different life style in Tanzania you can also switch between the two cities. Moshi is the quiety town under Mt. Kilimanjaro while Dar es Salaam is the busiest city in Tanzania with more than four million people.

On your arrival we offer 3 days orientation  to help you understand your chosen voluntary area, culture and swahili language. 

Our workers will take good care of you during your entire trip. On the weekends you can do different safaris and small trips with us. There is always a lot of activities to do like animal safaris, visiting water falls, caves,  museums and after your volunteering period you can even climb Mt. Kilimanjaro or have a holiday in Zanzibar.
