VOLUNTEER IN AFRICA

“Jambo! I just back from an amazing three weeks in Tanzania doing the teaching project. I had never travelled alone before, never mind to Africa. The team were constantly on call to reply to my many emails, along with the pre departure webinar held, I was given a lot of confidence and assistance in the planning of my trip. The Volunteer Handbook has everything you could need to know in it and I would advise to read it thoroughly. I worked at the teaching placement at a school in Laganga, roughly a 35 minutes Dalla journey. It was the best experience of my life.” – CAITLYN HALL | UNITED STATES
