  • Description

    Description

    Hello Workawayers,

    Visitors and volunteers are warmly welcome without condition!
    Tanzania First Country to Welcome all Tourists again with open arms

    The Tanzanian president said that Covid-19 infections in the country has gone down tremendously, and was looking to welcome tourists to visit Tanzania unconditionally. “I have directed the Ministry of Tourism to attract airline companies to fly their tourists and passengers scheduled planes to Tanzania with immediate effect”, Magufuli said.

    EARLY DESCRIPTION: WE STILL NEED YOUR HELP ?
    In 2019 the organization managed to build two classrooms in the suburbs of Arusha to be able to reach the goal of raising awareness to the power of education to the community as well as helping vulnerable children and youths in Tanzania. So far on this site there is nothing apart from the new school building.

    As we mentioned earlier that we have already completed two new classrooms in one building and toilets, but we still need to complete solar cells, building school compound fence, Kitchen, Volunteer house, other classrooms, computer lab and library.

    The funds are simply not there. Our children and neighbourhoods wait for our school to be ready to operate and we will provide them a safe place and a second chance to learn comfortably.

    Without facilities and supplies, the children in Arusha have little hope of getting a quality education, proper education foundation and escaping a hard life. We want to change that and that is why we are working on a big dream by having a best school that's built for vulnerable children and youths.

    No previous experience needed !

    We are looking for people for the following fields;

    - People who can help us building a school for disadvantaged children and youths in Arusha - Tanzania. /No Previous Experiences Needed.

    - People who can help us in creating a fundraising campaign for the project and promoting on social media.


    WHO ARE WE ?

    We are two old local Tanzanians namely Mary and Steven together.
    We are running a volunteering and education operations programs in Arusha, Tanzania.

    We founded a small dynamic educational based non-profit organization with aid programs that provide education opportunities and community support programs to help locals, unprivileged children and women in the least developed areas of Arusha, Tanzania.

    Most of our volunteers are short-term and long term volunteers, who join us in their vacation and volunteering time and they start joining us in volunteering programs, doing Safari or Hiking Trips from here. We are looking for volunteers who can help our construction projects and help with teaching unprivileged children. We can also arrange some trips for our volunteers. Our programs are located in Arusha at the slopes of remarkable Mt. Meru in Northern Tanzania.

    So it’s always busy at our place. Staying with us will give you an inside Tanzanian culture as well as experiencing new volunteering life as well as help trustworthy NGO with current projects at our new future field.
