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 gone 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.

Really great experience ! Marko and the host family are very welcoming and I immediately felt at home. For the volunteering tasks, you can try different things, Marko is quite flexible. If you're looking for an experience where you can help the community, get to know the locals and their culture and at the same time discover the wonderful nature of Tanzania, I highly recommend this ! Also, if you're a solo traveler you'll probably end up meeting other international.
Keep it up Marko, really inspiring what you're doing for your community !

What an amazing experience! Being in África for the first time and choosing Arusha as destination was definitely the right choice! Best safaris (definitely recommend Serengeti and Ngorongoro for at least 3 days!), beautiful waterfalls and nature surrounding. Marco and Sam are excellent people, who will help out with anything you need! Lucy, Lolita and little Livia are as gentle and kind as it can get! Just lovey people (and great food too!!). There are lots of work to be done, specially in construction for now (end of 2021 and beginning of 2022), so all volunteers are mostly welcome! Asante 🙏

It has been an amazing opportunity to help the kids to improve their education, while you share time and experiences with them. Both of you learn of each other a lot!! Also the family has been wonderful, so lovely, always taking care of you. Moreover, the other volunteers are so friendly and the organizers, Marko and Sam, are really good people who want to contribute to that good objective. To sum up, a nice experience which I recommend without any doubt for sure!

From the first day in Africa I felt immersed in the culture, Marko and the host were very good people to me and they helped me at any time. This is an experience that really makes you open your eyes, makes you live and feel the Tanzanian culture. I recommend it, do it and help them, but if you choose to do it you must do so with all your heart and motivation.
