I live in a rather small village, located 1h from Morogoro. My passion is to meet different people around the world and to exchange culture. That's why I would like to invite you as a my friend to stay in my home place with my family. I will teach you the way we live here and you can learn about traditional food, markets, Maasai (we can even visit them if you are interested), how to weave Mkeka (the traditional Tanzanian mat), and
In return you can help us , me and local children to improve our English skills We would like Also learning other languages such as German, Italian, French, Spanish, Chinese and others.
Furthermore, my dream is to build a library for the children in the neighbourhood. My wish, having a place where the children could read and have quiet place to learn overseas languages. Of course any help is warmly welcome. As a member of family, we will do our best to bring smile not children's faces.

There will be a variety of things to learn such as culture, way of simple living, local food, local language, skills with local community in general (such as weaving Mkeka mat, preparing ugali, looking after cows and goats in the field, washing clothes and braiding hair for example. We can teach you some Swahili so that you can interact with the population of my village and say all the necessary greetings which are very important for Swahili people. In my village outskirts live many Maasai tribes. If you like we can visit them, see the way they live, eat together and if you want you can also buy some traditional Maasai jewellery.
My village is a very nice traditional little town. We can visit the where abouts either by foot or we can rent bicycles to experience the ultimate tanzanian way of life. Nearby cities we can also visit by taking the bus.
If you like I can help you to organise a trip to Mikumi National Park, Selous Game Reserve and Udzungwa National Park for a very low price.

I advice you to arrive Airport from Dar es salaam , you should take a car / taxi to the station ( 15$) From this point , you will take a local bus (4hours ) 4.5$ to morogoro bus station
I can come to pick you there but I ask to pay me the taxi to my village ( 3000Tanzania shillings per person)
After everything you will be arrived, me will share a good meal together
Currency advice : Tanzania shillings is used in Tanzania but for all bring activities like safari, hotel, restaurants, maasai village, the USD dollar will be pleconized so my advice is to have few of both
Maximum 3 hours a day, 5 days a week
In developing countries (Where most hosts are involved in charity work or community development) some of our hosts may ask for a small donation to help the host family or charity (often less then 5 dollars per day) Workaway will allow this listing when the donation goes directly to the family or charity and is just to cover the cost of the volunteer‘s stay. (This will be clearly marked on the host listing).
We will strictly not allow listings posted by agents, “middle men” or projects who we feel are looking to profit from a volunteers stay.
