From February until May 2011 I have been volunteering in Arusha, Tanzania through the organization called MICATZ which arranged everything for me before I went there and I was treated very well by MICATZ and got the information and help I needed.

In Tanzania I was very happy to work at Yakini Primary School in Arusha, and Micatz was very flexible to let me work at the school instead of the orphanage, which I thought I wanted to work at before I left Denmark and micatz donated 30% of the money l paid to them to my projects where l volunteered with and the rest of the money they used for volunteer house running costs for volunteer food,airport pick-up and for their office administration.

I was satisfied with the volunteer house I lived in, and it was nice to have the contact to other volunteers. The workers in the house were very friendly and open to me.
Micatz was a big support for me, and I was very satisfied with Edward and Christopher, which I had the most contact to and also felt safely under MICATZ in Tanzania.

The organization was very flexible, and I appreciated that I could make breaks from the work to make trips and then come back to work.

I recommend you to go with them.

Asante Sana.
