About

Volunteers have the option to start or finish with their project at any given time. Keep in account; the Tanzanian school holidays when the school will be closed and volunteers will be free to enjoy their spare time.

Tanzania and all the sub-Saharan African countries are badly affected by the epidemics of poverty and HIV. The number of orphans and street children is growing. Efforts have been made by various local organizations to protect these children by offering much-needed education as well as skill-development training. Thousands of orphan children who suffer from extreme poverty, HIV/AIDS and hopelessness leave their villages and travel to Dar es Salaam, Arusha, Moshi and other cities, where they most often end up worse off on the street. Most orphanages in Tanzania lack resources and are under-staffed. Orphanages in Tanzania focus primarily on offering formal and informal schooling and a safe place to live and study.

Great time

I had a great time at The Lasting Bless School in Arusha. I helped the teacher with teaching baby class 1. The kids were only 4 years old, so it was hard work sometimes :-). The family we stayed with took very good care of us. It felt like home. Great experience!!
