“Travel & Make impact” is a project with the slogan of “ embrace the culture of Tanzania while positively impacting local lives” designed to give opportunity to international volunteers  to work under VoSTa in the community project that designed to give them opportunity to help local communities in conserving environment- establishing tree nurseries, planting trees raising awareness about personal hygiene, repairing and renovation of two to three classes in selected primary school with poor conditions, delivering conservation knowledge to communities,  travel the country of Tanzania from north ( Arusha) to Zanzibar, experience the culture of local  people ,Maasai, taking safari to number one safari destination in the world “Serengeti” Ngorongoro conservation area  while bringing positive impact in selected schools and communities.


What will be conducted exactly?

The project involves three major things

Volunteers getting education from our partner environment organization about natural resource conservation and delivering to the selected school and community. The conservation education that will be covered here involves the following. Establishment of tree nurseries, transplanting, grafting, seedling, planting trees, taking care of trees from seedling to the tree as a plant and general natural resource conservation education. Soon after getting the education volunteers will depart to the selected schools and community to deliver in action the education that they have acquired.


Volunteers getting short time training from health officers about personal hygiene and then they will depart to do delivering to the selected schools and community. This will involve things like teaching about five stages of washing hands, menstrual education to girls, personal hygiene about food washing and taking care of key areas like toilets and keeping environment clean to avoid diseases like   typhoid, diarrhea, malaria and taking more precautions to avoid disease like Covid 19.

During free time volunteers will get opportunity to travel from Arusha to Zanzibar Ireland for relaxation, during weekends they can explore the wildness of number one world Safari destination of Serengeti and Ngorongoro conservation area without forgetting visiting the local hot spring of chemka around African tallest mountain of Kilimanjaro, learning Maasai and barbaric culture
