Your experience is what you make of it

I absolutely loved my time abroad in Tanzania this summer. Compared to my many past experiences volunteering abroad, this has been the best journey I have had. I taught at a primary school called Assumption School that was rich with socio-economic diversity among the student body and staff. The children were absolutely adorable and completely fluent in English! I was so lucky to have had the opportunity to have had taught them and I wouldn’t change it for the world! I felt so well informed and well prepared for my work, and was lucky enough to be with other interns who brought so much positivity to the accommodation to the point where I was excited to not only go to work to see my kids, but also to come home and spend time with my new found family.

What would you improve about this program?
There is not a thing I would change! I really enjoyed my trip.

Hi Natalie,
Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us! It's awesome to hear that the teaching staff were so welcoming to you and assisted with so many aspects of your internship stay. I'm sure that your positive energy will also be missed by the team and your home-away-from-home.

Women's Shelter in Tanzania

Going abroad for an internship was one of the best things I could of done for my self growth. It opened me up to an environment that is completely new and full of opportunity. My supervisors were all helpful with answering questions and being a friendly face to see everyday. She checked in on me quite frequently to see how I was doing in my placement and overall. There is a lot of public transportation that will help you get anywhere you want. Everyone in the city who I interacted it were very friendly. I lived not too far from my work and the center of the city. The interns all got very close as well, which made Arusha feel like home. The experience was something I will treasure for a lifetime, and hopefully will get to do again sometime in the future. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone interested.

What would you improve about this program?
What I would improve is more structure at the shelter. When I got there I have never been in an environment where there was no structure, so I felt very lost in the beginning.
