What about COVID 19?

Tanzania has received the safe travel stamp from the World Travel and Tourism Council in the wake of the current pandemic. 

Aside from that, you will receive safety guidance and protocol once you have registered with us.  If you would prefer to participate in this project remotely from home, please get in contact for details.

How will you get around?

For your placement, you will travel like a local and walk or take public transport. You will need to set a small budget aside for this (around $1 per day by local minibuses, 4 to 5 days per week). It is important you are prepared and comfortable to travel around town, this is a demanding role that requires dedication.

Important VISA & Permit Information

You will be required to pay a for a VISA for voluntary work assignment.

Please enquire for details.

Where do my fees go?

Most of your fees are spent locally. Fees ensure you have above standard accommodation, that you have a personal coordinator picking you up at the airport, orientating you and you have a coordinator day to day and your program is planned and facilitated specifically for you, to match your skills and get you to provide the very best to those that need you. 

Do any fees go directly to the projects?

​Yes they do. We make a charitable donation on your behalf to your project placement. This is not mandatory. We do this as we know how challenging it can be for our partners to host, supervise and very often teach volunteers. We want our partners to know they are valued and respected for their time as best we can. 

What insurance should I get?

​You should ensure you're adequately covered by comprehensive travel insurance for the duration of your stay.. For our students please check with your employers/university/college or national employment body on indemnity.

What vaccinations should I get? 

You will receive a full handbook and consultation on exactly what is required.

Where can I get cheap flights?

​There are dozens of great websites online for cheap flights. It is advisable to get your flights as early as possible to be able to logistically plan your trip. 

Is Africa safe for me to travel alone? Do I need to be with other volunteers?

​Regardless of whether you're volunteering on a clinical mission, you're still a tourist. Forward planning is key to protecting yourself from risk as you would anywhere in the world. As a group or a solo traveller from abroad, you will attract attention but, you will also have a great support system in your volunteer coordinators, fellow travellers/volunteers and ​supervisors. It's important to try and be conscientious of your new surroundings and respect and follow local customs as much as possible and insure yourself from any possible risks. 

Africa is a large continent with every country varying greatly in local culture, customs, rules and regulations. Research your destination as much as possible and ask as many questions as possible. We would never place you at risk or in harm's way, however it is important you take ownership of your journey and behave responsibly. ​

Please note:

We can also transfer you to the airport on your departure date for an additional fee. Please mention this in your application!

Journée Typique

Your typical day will usually begin very early, receiving a general guideline of the case load for the day. You will then be given supervised charge of your case list for the day and either observe or assist in handling a variety of straight forward and complex cases.  You day can be either very hectic and extremely challenging or slow and very quiet. You will need to be motivated, resilient and work well in a team in order to get the best out of your experience. 

What will your schedule look like?
06:00 Breakfast
07:30 Report to placement
12:00-13:00 Lunch Break
