  • Description

    Hello, My name is Marja and I come from Holland. I live in Amsterdam. I used to travel through Europe on my motorbike. I finally sold my motorbike to change my destination in Africa. I have been in Tanzania and went twice to Madagascar. Last year I discovered Workaway and spent 2 months on a project named Mother’s Heart Uganda. This year I have a 12-month leave from my job for travelling to discover more of Africa. I Iike to visit interesting places for a longer time and support them with my knowledge and experience. I have revisited Uganda again for 2 months. Currently I stayed for 3 months in Malawi and since the beginning of November I am Zambia.
