    Offering work with us ,we appreciate as than paying money to us, we could give money to do the work which volunteers are doing , that is why we give accommodation and food without fees because you work for us even if is short time a day 4-5 hours a day but is more wealth, we could collect some income and pay people to do this kind of work , volunteering is creating memory than anything else .You are welcome

    Here we have also HIV/AIDS children these we care without fees , as we are located in a region which is on the Top of HIV/AIDS leading region in Tanzania, everyday three months more than 250 new infection , at our project we take care of these children not all but few children we have are living with Infection, It is so sad , but we try our best to give them better nutrition , we care only children from families with poor economic backgroung.
