About Zanzibar
Known as the Spice Island, the beautiful island of Zanzibar on Africa’s east coast is bursting with culture and history, seemingly at odds with its idyllic geography of white-sand beaches with palms swaying lazily in the sea breeze. Together this makes Zanzibar a fabulous place to explore as well as a dream to relax and unwind.
Zanzibar is the semi-autonomous part of Tanzania in East Africa. It is composed of the Zanzibar Archipelago in the Indian Ocean, 25–50 kilometres off the coast of the mainland, and consists of many small islands and two large ones: Unguja (Zanzibar) and Pemba.
The capital of Zanzibar, Stone Town, is on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
Every culture lover will love this diverse island with many Arabic influences. Zanzibar has a rich history, which is largely characterized by slave trade.
Zanzibar has been the entrance of eastern Africa for centuries and it was here where most slaves were sold; and Indian, Chinese and Arabic merchants would arrive to trade their wares and buy spices, ivory and slaves. The history of Zanzibar has created a unique mixture of Indian, African and Arabic influences which can be seen in its people, food, culture and building styles.
In Zanzibar it seems as if time has stood still. People live very traditional lives. The local Zanzibari are 95% Muslim. As a volunteer you have an exemplary role in the community and it is important that you show respect for the local community, its people and culture.
This means that you adapt to the culture and customs. That is why all our volunteers need to dress appropriately (shoulders covered and long pants).
On the beaches you can of course just walk around in swimwear.

For this volunteer program we are looking for serious people who don't come to Zanzibar for the parties. We are looking for people who really want to contribute to the community, our children and the project. People who want a unique experience and who want to work together with others and learn from each other.

 

About our volunteer program
More Africa is primarily an NGO, offering special education, physiotherapy, day care and medical care to children with disabilities.
Because More Africa depends on donations, we opened our guesthouse in 2019. All profit of the guesthouse goes directly to the NGO and thus to the school and the children.
Within our guesthouse we train 18+ young people with disabilities. One of your tasks will be to train the local staff to work with these young people. In addition, your tasks will be:
- Training new local staff
- Reception back office (reservations, emails etc)
- Stock (keep track of the store and stock, daily)
- Guestrelation
- Organize and book excursions
- Organizing events and activities for our guests or outside people
- Giving guided tours and providing information to interested tourists

Funding
Because More Africa depends 100% on help from volunteers and donations, we really appreciate it if you want to do a fundraiser before arrival, during your time here, or after returning home. Your help will be much appreciated!

Tagesablauf

A typical day at More Africa Guesthouse looks like this:

In principle we keep the same working hours for volunteers in the guesthouse. However, it is of course possible that you organize an event or activity for the evening. We do expect you to participate in these activities, in addition to your work during the day.

08:00: Breakfast starts at 7:30, but as a volunteer you may start at 08:00. You check if the staff is there, if everything is clean and if everything is ready for breakfast. After the guests have breakfast you answer questions, arrange a taxi or excursion.
10:00: Breakfast is over. You make sure that everything is neat and tidy.  
10:30: You check the store and see what groceries are needed. You let the staff do the shopping, OR give a list to the project leader, OR do the shopping yourself.
11:00: You go to work with mails/reservations for the guesthouse, check if all websites are up to date etc.
11:30: When people come for a tour, you accompany them. You make sure that the staff prepares lunch for these people.
13:30: Lunch together with other volunteers in the dormitory.
14:00: Depending on whether there are guests inside, you will have a chat, proceed with reservations or organize events.
16:00: Depending on what needs to be done you will be ready between 15:00 and 16:00. A few days a week we also have an afternoon program with Swahili or beach/village cleanups. We find it important that our volunteers are immersed in the local culture and customs and participate in local life.
The other days you can enjoy; take a dip in our pool (if there are any guests) or go to the beach.
18:00: During weekdays we expect our volunteers back at 18:00. At 18:00 dinner is ready, which is prepared by our chef. In the evening the volunteers can play a game together or watch a movie.

The working days are from Tuesday to Saturday. Volunteers have weekends from Saturday afternoon until Monday evening.
In the weekend we can arrange excursions and trips for volunteers. We expect volunteers to return on Saturday and Sunday at 23:00 and on Monday at 21:00 at the latest.

Über die Organisation

More Africa is a special school for physical and/or mental disabled children in Paje, Zanzibar. We provide special education, physical therapy, daycare and medical care.

Lerne deine Organisation kennen

More Africa
More Africa is a non-governmental organization (NGO) on Zanzibar which focuses on children and young adults with physical and/or mental disabilities. The special school provides special education, physical therapy, medical help, training and daycare to children who aren’t allowed anywhere else because of their disability.

Goals
More Africa is a NGO founded in 2015 by the Dutch Ellen van Beers.
The main aim of More Africa is the special school, in order to provide every child the right to education, therapy and/or meaningful daytime activities. On Zanzibar, education, counseling or therapy for children/young adults with disabilities are not obvious. Parents often struggle with the fact that they want the best for their child, but the child cannot go anywhere and will not be accepted at regular schools. For these children, More Africa is there. We provide customized education, counseling and therapy.

Our approach
The More Africa school offers a nursery, primary and physical therapy department. Besides, More Africa offers job opportunities for young adults with disabilities from the age of 18 and older. In this way we strive to increase positive impacts of tourism and decrease the negative sides of tourism, by focussing on community based tourism.
The More Africa school offers these children and young adults the opportunity to develop themselves in a familiar and safe environment, as More Africa works with individual careplans and all children have their own personal goals they would like to achieve. 
More Africa is a progressive organization on Zanzibar when it comes to involving parents in the development, guidance and support of their child. More Africa is convinced that it is essential to involve parents in the development of the child. In this way parents can continue the development at home, in the familiar surroundings.

Departments
More Africa supports children and young adults with special needs in their development through physical therapy, training, special education and daycare. More Africa works with five departments:
1. Nursery
This group consists toddlers and children with major development delays. We prepare them for the primary school by teaching them basic scholar and social skills.
2. Primary school
This group consists of children who are not allowed in Zanzibar to go to a government school due to their disabilities
3. Daycare
More Africa offers daycare for children with severe mental disabilities. We offer these children education by experiential learning. This means that it is about education in which you allow children to gain as much experience as possible, so that they learn to experience and discover for themselves.
4. Physical Therapy
This group consists of children with multiple disabilities. We offer these children especially physical therapy and daycare through sensory stimulation. These children often have Cerebral Palsy.
5. 18+ Trainingprogram
More Africa offers a training programme for people with disabilities from the age of 18.
The training program prepares our employees to work within the hospitality sector. We teach our employees to work as security, gardener, bartender, chef or housekeeper. We believe that everyone has the ability to be a meaningful member of the community. In this way we create employment opportunities for people with disabilities.
