Yes, I recommend this program

Loved staying in Tanzania with WorldUnite

There was always a really good communicationstructur in the organisation. In Moshi we had a local assistant who was always there for us in case of need and for every questions.
My time in Tanzania was one of the best experience in my life. I got a feel for the real life in Africa and I enjoyed the time. I wished I could have stayed longer.

What would you improve about this program?
There could be organised language courses in suaheli for all of the trainee who are at the same town.
