  • Description


    Hi! We live in a village near Dar-es-Salaam City, Tanzania (45 minutes from Julius Nyerere International Airport) where you can stay in your private room comfortable and privacy.
    We are Peter and Astrida, we live in a beautiful house with guava garden, coconut trees which we eat daily.
    Our current project is to develop an English Medium School for Nursery kids (3-6 years old) and Primary School (7-13 years old).
    To obtain the certification as an official registered School in Tanzania, we need to build a Library, and an Administration block (Staff room, kitchen and dining room) as well as extra classrooms. Volunteers can both teach and help in construction activities.
    (Note that during June and December school is closed due to holiday so we will just need help in building)
    We love eating good food, going to the beach as well as to the museums and zoo.
    We are looking for Volunteers to start immediately. Volunteers should be hardworking, able to use own initiative and have a good sense of humor.
    Unfortunately, we're having a hard time to fund the construction at the moment so we need your help with that.
