The Experience

We believe that a child’s future success and advancement in life is greatly influenced by their early educational experience as those who have go to school early develop an interest in education more than those who have not participated in early learning education – learning how to get along in groups, work under teacher supervision, etc. They also receive encouragement to express their feelings and ideas through building, dancing, and drawing.

I had an amazing five weeks volunteering here! The work can be tiring but it is amazing and so worth it. There's is heaps to do on the weekends and in your spare time which Marko will happily help you to organise if you need to. The families welcome you like one of your own and catered perfectly for my vegan dietary requirement. I would highly recommend coming and feel free to ask me any questions :)

Indescribable the energy that these children are able to transmit to us ... they are happy with very little and this makes us rethink many things about our lives. I came with the objective of teaching, but without a doubt I learned the most during this 1 month that I was here.

Asante sana Tanzania!!

Asante too for your support my friend much appreciated and always live this way🙌



Being part of this project was a life change experience to me. It was incredible! Marko helped me even months before I went to Arusha and still helped a lot there, including when we were looking for safaris, etc. he became a friend - Rafiki as they say :)
My host family was great, don’t have anything to complain about. I miss everyone already!
The other volunteers made the experience even better. And I don’t have words to describe how much I loved the kids. They really need our support! I recommend for whoever is interested to do that.
Asante Sana!

Karibu Sana and wish all the best my friend.



It was an amazing and incredible time I spent in this project. I couldn’t imagine how deep this would be. First I went to help children in the library, teaching Math and English, but was me which learned a lot with them. The children are lovely, smart and happy all the time.
Marko is a great guy that afford the project with Sam, they have all my respect and admiration, cause they’re trying to do those place a better world for the kids.
I had a wonderful host family, Conjepta and her children took care of me with love.
For sure it was the best experience of my life.
Asante Sana, Tanzania!
