  • Description


    Live with locals, learn our culture and make friends with fellow travelers from all over the world. We are located at the base of majestic Mt. Meru in Arusha where we host a number of charity projects that truly make a difference. Also, for fun we can help you to organize safaris, mountain climbs (Kilimanjaro) and day trips to Zanzibar and other destinations. Please get in touch if you are interested in volunteering or internships. Our charity is run by Mama Hindu and her daughter Fatmah. Our Hostel team is run by me, Ally (a local) and Norina (from Germany.) A minimal staff is maintained which consists of volunteers and a few others (Housekeeper, Teachers (mostly volunteer), etc. A workaway with us truly will be a life changing experience. Please come and join us!

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    Two is usually the maximum number of volunteers that we can accommodate at one time but we can be flexible depending on skills and availability. You can also learn to speak kiswahili, about local food and culture.

  • Aide


    We have many volunteer opportunities at the school, the charity center, and the hostel. We are always open to creative ideas and welcome suggestions.

    School opportunities include: Assisting and teaching in the classroom (ages 5 – 14), participating with children's sports activities during recess and "Friday Sports Time", coaching local kids basketball, reading, tutoring.

    At the hostel we can use volunteers with a variety of skills: carpentry, gardening, painting, keeping the common areas super clean, and general maintenance. We are converting a space into a reception area and need your help! Social media and marketing skills are extremely welcome but not necessary. Minor tasks many include: painting, light yard chores, helping with guests – nothing too physical.

    The charity needs volunteers for computer data entry, filing, health assessment of students, assisting women with job searches, traveling to local other schools to assist with educating adolescent girls (and young boys) on women’s empowerment.

    As you can see, there are so many things to do and we can match you up to the tasks that you are best suited for and that are of the most interest to you.

    There are plenty of local people (at the hostel, the school and around the town in general) here to teach you Swahili (Kiswahili) - this is a pleasure for us and we are always anxious to learn the languages of all of our visitors. English is very commonly spoken here but we can always improve our skills. We also have a fluent German speaker on staff. But any language exchange is appreciated.
