    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    They will have an opportunity to enjoy a genuine African way of life and the multicultural activities Dar es Salaam has to offer. They can learn how to cook African food or even to speak basic Swahili (optional). We treat them as part of the family, inviting them join us on our weekend outings to town or to the beach. They will have experience dealing with a child having special needs. We also hope to learn from their prior experience.
