The Experience

In Zanzibar, the environmental awareness is almost nonexistent, contrary to Europe where people hear a lot about this kind of issue. If you want to make a difference to protect the planet at your scale and spread the word up to the rural areas of Zanzibar, let's go!

AVOID PDS! He only cares for the fee. School was closed in August. No project, he spoke suahili all the time, very impolite. Food needs were not met, dinner was a cucumber and bread.
I decided to leave after 1 week, even if I paid 1 month. He answered “ I won’t let you go”, It began a nightmare, He threatened to report me to immigration because I had a volunteer visa, so I was under his responsibility? He called the local leader and started making false accusations in order to make me leave the country. I had to request assistance from my embassy.
HE NEVER GAVE ME MY MONEY BACK!

It was owesome experience!! The community of PDS is very friendly, kind and helpful. The project is really interesting because is for developing talents and skills, with children, woman and teens. I recommend 100% the experience. You can learn a lot and at the same time you can help the project and the community.
