    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The cultural exchange can be so rich when we do something helpful to someone who we don't expect too much back, like children and simple people from a small village in Tanzania.

    We are sure all the volunteers can have a great time with this so rewarding experience.

    The volunteer will also have opportunities to learn to speak swahili language, to cook local food also will experience the realy local life and culture while visiting places they ordinarily not visit.

    The volunteers will also have a chance to have fun with our neighbourhood and other people in our village.

  • Help


    We need help to finish the building where we use as a classroom, as well as to create an envirolment based on Permaculture system to privide organic food for the children in the future.

    A volunteer also can help to teach to draw, singing and play variety games or sports with the chindren.

    We also need the volunteers to talk to children, practice English and share things about life in general.
