A great experience

I´m Nadir, from Br4azil.
I’ve had three unforgettable weeks working as a volunteer in Arusha, Tanzania.
To be in a foreign country, especially in a continent so different from our western life was the first impact.
The second impact was the institution “The Orphanage” with many children that wanted affection. Besides the affection they’ve wanted to learn more.
On the other hand, the great variety of necessities of this institution: food, clothes for children, didactic materials, many things to do such as cooking, doing the dishes, cleaning, etc.
But that’s what I’ve thought.
And now I only can say: thank you so much because I was able to learn, teach, support to teacher, play with children and help a little in the daily routine.
I only have positive points about the program: the whole organization, support with information, suggestions, safety recommendations and many ​other ​things.
I also consider very important to comment the accommodation: Localization, home, amenities, food and the care of people who work at the home.
At the end, I have to say thank you for the touristic information and program that I did.

Thank you so much!

Volunteering Program in Arusha Tanzania

The Royal School is a primary school in Arush, in a poor neighborhood.
I personaly taught English, Math, Music and dances, in several grades (2 to 7th)
I had a very good relations with all the school personel and the kids.
The satisfaction of helping the school is very good.
The children need a lot of love, help and support and give you their love back...
The school needs more volunteers and also financial support in order to improve its conditions.

How can this program be improved?

The preparation before arrival in order to meet expectation of all sides (the volunteers, the organization arranging the program and the organization receiving the volunteers)

Response from Iko Poran Volunteer Abroad

Dear Yair,
So good to know more about your experience in Tanzania. We are very happy to know that your experience was full of love, support and respect. We truly believe that a volunteer experience should be a win-win situation where you put time, energy and love and get the same back from the project (kids).
We would love to hear your suggestions about how to improve the pre arrival details so the next volunteers can have an even better experience. Please don't hesitate to contact us directly.
We wish you all the best.
