The mission of our NGO

Our mission is to partner with, support and strengthen at-risk families to increase the ability of families to stay together and thrive in their home community. We work mainly with newborns, malnourished infants and their families, and we, therefore, want mainly Medical Volunteers to work with us. But we also need help in grant writing and raising awareness of our NGO, too!

General info

This is a very real Volunteer experience. We are a small charity who are passionate about not fuelling the Voluntourism business, and are therefore only accepting Volunteers skilled in the areas we need. We can have a maximum of 2 Volunteers at a time, and you will live at our Volunteer House which also acts as one of our Programmes’ office. You will be immersed right into our NGO, and your time with us will be invaluable.

Work expectations

We want you to be motivated and ready to jump right in and help/give advice wherever is needed. We do not have a Volunteer Coordinator there year-round to ask you to do things, so you will be working with our American Directors and Tanzanian staff and using your initiative! Volunteers should be over the age of 22 who are aware, competent and confident to live in Tanzania.

  1. Is this available year round? I would love to come help some when I can. I have many skills, master degree and spent 24.5 years in the Air Force and government and really would love to come feel my heart blossom while helping. I also learned a very tiny bit of Swahili while Iā€™m Kenya and would love to hear it again.
