This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
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.

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.
