Long-term commitment after returning home is aimed at to achieve sustainable support for the projects in Mwanza. The second part is the ongoing accompaniment through well-educated staff before, during and after the stay in Tanzania. The third part is the intercultural learning achieved through language and cultural classes as well as the seminars.
Through the exchange with Volunteers and incorporating them in different projects Shamiri wants to create a diverse community in Tanzania. Additionally, it aims to form open-minded, well-experienced and educated young people with a commitment to support the diversity of human lifestyles and beliefs and take on global responsibility.
SHAMIRI is Kiswahili and it means to blossom and grow in a beautiful was. We chose this name as both, the Volunteers and the supported projects should ‘shamiri’ in the best way through our intercultural learning experience.
