Great organization!

I currently am a volunteer, staying at the hostel with Tizia and Tini for four months. I found their organization Viva Tanzania while looking for affordable and serious volunteer opportunities in Tanzania. Since Tizia and Tini cooperate with several small NGOs and organizations, I had no problems to find a project that suits my wishes. Tizia and Tini both offered great support not only in finding a suitable project, but also in settling down in Arusha after my arrival. In the kindergarten I am volunteering in I actually have the opportunity to help, not only in teaching, but also in building a Website, raising sponsorships etc. Viva Tanzania does not only offer accomodation and volunteering / internships etc., but you will live in a familiar atmosphere and enjoy a lot of free time activities with people from all over the world. You will not only gain a lot of experiences, but also built friendships, learn Swahili, get to know the Tanzanian culture and not to forget: have a lot of fun.
