In this project you have the opportunity to help needy children in Tanzania and gain valuable experience at the same time. Your task as a volunteer is to look after children who are in need of support for various reasons. These reasons range from poverty and illness to family pressure, especially for young mothers. In the baby care facility you will look after infants and toddlers. This includes bathing, feeding, changing and playing. You will help build a loving bond with the children, as many of them are here without their families. Your role will also be to encourage their development through age-appropriate activities and ensure a clean environment. You could also help with everyday tasks such as washing and cooking. Creative activities such as painting or singing are also on the agenda. You can also help set up the playground and beautify the surroundings. In addition you will support fundraising campaigns and public relations work to ensure that the project remains financially sustainable. Your involvement in these tasks will help to enrich the lives of these children and increase their chances of a better future. This experience will not only provide lasting memories and new perspectives for the children, but also for yourself.

All programs can be booked with friends. If you would like to book a program as a group, we recommend that you enquire in advance. Each person must book the project individually.

Ideal for all programs are at least three months in advance. In principle it is also possible for us to place short-term applicants (volunteering and language study travel) in Tanzania.

Tanzania is a safe country and the people are very friendly and warmhearted. In big cities, as in every big city in the world, there is petty crime. When travelling, the following things should be taken into account: always keep an eye on valuables, always keep your hand luggage on your lap in buses, and at night you should not travel by bus or withdraw money from ATMs. Up-to-date information on the situation can be found at the Embassy or Foreign Office.

Please note that in Tanzania all electronic devices can only be used with an adapter. They are available in many electronics stores.

In principle, no language course is mandatory in advance. However, depending on the volunteering program, you can join some classes after your program. Your host is happy to support you with all.

Depending on the program, we work with host families in the vicinity or there are volunteer houses at the project site.

For all programs you have to be covered by foreign health insurance. We will be happy to help you find a suitable insurance policy.

During the language school and in the volunteering projects, you will always have a direct contact person to help you with any problems. Of course you can also always contact us.
