James and his family are really nice hosts. They treated us like their family.
We share our stay with other volunteers and this is so great because this team work allows to make a better impact. You can help the local primary school in the morning and play with the kids at the boarding house in the afternoon.
I suggest you to prepare lesson in the topic you like (science, maths, English, arts, civic, history, etc) and you will have the chance to teach this to the kids.

My experience at Kuzuri Tanzania was excellent. I have been here for more than one month. The Kiziri family is great, always aware of us, meeting volunteers framed different countries, and enjoying the great food of Mama Ksiri.
The work at school is super enjoyable. And the afternoons at the bording house are the best.
There is work to do helping James to organize some stuff of the kids, and take care of the health of the kids.
Weekends are to enjoy!!
I hope you enjoy it like me!

I had an amazing experience with the Kissiri family and the other volunteers. I spent 5 weeks, going orphanage which is for me the most fulfilling of the options. Kids are amazing, and girls there really need help for the daily duties.
