    Beschreibung

    Hello, I'm Nitike. My husband Robart and I run a nursery in Mafinga, a town in southern Tanzania.

    Many of the children we support are orphaned and/or from poor families. And our community is severely affected by the spread of HIV and AIDS. That’s why one of our biggest goals is to raise awareness through education, in order to help prevent the spread and to eradicate poverty. Because when children learn important lessons from an early age, those lessons tend to stay with them for a lifetime.

    Robart and I are both teachers and we run the nursery on a voluntary basis. We do not currently have any paid staff working for us on this project. One other teacher and a matron work with us, also as volunteers.

    VISA
    The rules for volunteers in Tanzania have recently changed. You are now required by the government to get a business visa on arrival, which costs $250 and lasts 3 months.

    WEATHER
    Mafinga weather is changeable but generally hot in the day and cooler at night. We advise you to bring suitable clothing accordingly.

    WHAT TO BRING
    Please bring whatever you feel is necessary but our visitors often have things like:
    Mosquito repellent
    Malaria tablets (please consult your doctor before departure)
    Sunscreen
    A sun hat
    Comfortable shoes you can work in

    TRANSPORT
    Buses for Mafinga leave Dar es Salaam at 6am, so you must be at Ubungo bus station for 5.30am. This means you will probably have to spend a night in Dar before travelling to us. We can help you book a cheap hotel near the station.

    The bus takes around 9-10 hours and you will see much of Tanzania on the way, including giraffes and zebras as it travels through Mikumi National Park!

    It also makes regular food and toilet stops. It's helpful to have small denominations of shillings so you can buy things to eat and drink at stops, or when sellers come to the window with snacks.

    DURING THE TIME OFF
    During the time of volunteer will have chance to visit some places like;
    .One of the biggest National park in southern part of Tanzania (Ruaha National park )
    .Isimila stone age
    .Kalenga Museums
    .Igeleke paints
    .Kitanzini place
    Tea plantations
    .Gangilonga ( historically - speaking stone)

    And other normal close place like
    .Going to Gym
    .hotels
    .Bar
    .And supermarkets
