Tanzania volunteers, Tanzania NGO, volunteering in Tanzania
Greeting from Serengeti Tanzania.
Child hope foundation (CHF) is an independent, non-profit, organization, non-religious, non-partisan and it was initiated and established in year 2012., It was finally registered in 2014 in Dar es salaam Tanzania.
CHF aims at improving the quality of life of highly vulnerable children and women at the grass root level.
The project operates in a rural area of Kilimanjaro and Serengeti. These are tourism region in Tanzania, but inhabited with low income earns most of the people are illiterate.

We choose Serengeti and Kilimanjaro as our ideal sites for our Program because it is the intersection of poverty and opportunities.

The Amani Women Group

Since CHF has implemented programmers to address these ills, it has learnt that long-term sustainable and impact on these children’s lives is best cultivated from their communities.

After years of reflection, CHF’s direction has shifted with greater emphasis on empowering vulnerable children in their communities.
We formed a women group known as “AMANI WOMEN GROUP” to start small activities and try to help children and the communities in a participatory way.
Since these women being the mother of some of the students, it is obvious that working together could be constructive for communities.

Travel and Sightseeing Opportunities in Tanzania

Tanzania is an intensely varied and colourful land on the East coast of Africa. Home to Africaโ€™s highest mountain, largest lake, huge wildlife reserves, and hundreds of paradise beaches, it is without a doubt one of Africaโ€™s most appealing destinations and a great introduction to the African continent. There are plenty of interests and entertainment to pursue when youโ€™re not working. The vibrant markets are worth exploring and are a great place to buy traditional batiks, wood carvings, and Maasai jewellery.
There is plenty to explore in and around Dar es Salaam, like the National Museum, the Village Museum, and the Botanical Gardens. There are popular beaches just to the north of the city or you can take a two-hour boat ride to the stunning spice island of Zanzibar. Zanzibar offers an alternative side of Africa, one of the tropical seas perfect for snorkelling and diving combined with a traditional Swahili way of life.

Did you know?

Tanzania got its name when the country of Tanganyika, and the island nation of Zanzibar, were unified in 1964.

Our base in Moshi places you within easy reach of the vast Serengeti National Park and the lesser known Arusha National Park, which can be visited as a day trip from Arusha. Mount Kilimanjaro National Park is also less than one hours drive away and climbing Africaโ€™s highest mountain is an enticing and achievable challenge for most.
Tanzania is now firmly established as one of the best safari destinations in the world and this year Tanzania has rated the best safari country of 2017 in Africa with an impressive 25% of the country protected as national parks or conservation areas. Although working as a volunteer abroad in Tanzania will put you in contact with the welcoming Tanzanian people, the wildlife is not to be missed.
Travel around Tanzania has improved greatly over recent years and buses between the main towns are cheap and reasonably efficient. Travelling by train is an option to visit towns between the coast and the west of the country.
