Samaritan Volunteer project – We are a charity organisation situated in southern Dar es salaam. It’s one hour by bus from the city centre. In most local families in our community, there are many children and youth who have no motivation with education even their parent they are not motivated to take them to school, therefore you will see many children in the street losing the opportunity of getting an education.
Since we started this program we saw a lot of changes and the children are motivated to come and learn from our school. At our organisation, we run a nursery school and education centre
where we help these children to have better early education as we believe that a child’s future success and advancement in life is greatly influenced by their early educational experience as those who have to go to school early develop an interest in education more than those who have not participated in early learning education.
The people in our village are very friendly and welcoming, while you’re here you will feel the spirit of Tanzanian people in our village since they are very passionate to welcome people from abroad.
