The project

This empowerment project was founded by Marilyn Hokororo in 2009. More than half of the employees are female. It is their desire to combine Tanzanian Fashion with a good cause: making a living and being able to financially support their families. Today they manufacture shawls, carpets, blankets, necklaces, belts, bracelets, earrings, key chains, and other goods to secure a fair income for the women and men in their community.

Almost all women in this project are single mothers who are having a very hard time providing for their children. Their husbands left the family, are drug addicted, or simply show no interest in caring for their wives and children. Single mothers in general are facing different challenges here in Tanzania, suffering from patriarchal stereotypes like women being weaker or less intelligent than men, which can make it harder for them to find a job. On average, a woman has five children and providing for them even with a partner is hard enough. To combine these two parts of working to have an income and taking care of their children, African Wear Design steps in and helps these women to believe in themselves and their abilities. Viva Tanzania does not only support this project with volunteers but also offers their amazing products for sale in the shop at the volunteer house.


Your work

Creativity and motivation are needed here! 

You can choose your field of activities yourself: from marketing to product development; from English and computer lessons or looking after the children of the employees, everything is possible.

Sometimes African Wear Design gets big orders from abroad, so it can be your job to manage that everything is produced within the given time frame to meet the customers needs. AWD might also be present at different fairs, presenting their products and gaining new costumers, and it could be your job to plan such an exhibition.

This project is open to anyone who is interested, creative, open, passionate, and dynamic. If your profession is related to any of the above mentioned fields, your help is preferable.
Working hours will be discussed individually and depend much on how much you want to engage here.

Dagelijkse activiteiten

Like everywhere there is no typical day and your work mainly depends on your interest and knowledge.
In the morning up on arrival at the project you will discuss your work for the day with your supervisor. Some times you might be told what to do but your project welcomes any idea or suggestion you have. Your job is mainly office work but you will definitely have enough time to learn weaving, making jewelry and other goods. If you are interested as well chat with your colleagues and learn about the struggles women face in Tanzanian society.

Vrijetijdsactiviteiten

We offer a wide range of activities at affordable volunteer rates like: 


1. Hiking/Walking tours to waterfalls, through forests and around a lake.
2. Swimming in paradise like hot springs with a glimpse of Mt.Kilimanjaro.
3. Cultural tours to Maasai markets and the possibility to visit different ethnic groups.
4. Coffee plantation tour to learn about the process from the bean to the finished product.
5. Safaris to the national parks of the Northern Circuit (Arusha NP, Lake Manyara NP, Tarangire NP, Serengeti NP, Ngorongoro Conservation Area). 6. Climbing Mount Meru and Mount Kilimanjaro.

Accomodatie

The volunteer house has dorms; each contains comfortable beds & shelves to store belongings, the maximum is four people in one room. We try to keep the rooms separated by gender but can not guarantee this. As storage space is limited in the rooms please consider packing light, too. Accommodation in a single room is possible (extra charge).
The hostel is located 25 walking minutes from the city centre. Although the house is close to the busy town and is surrounded by a green environment. In the garden we have different fruits, like bananas and avocado. Our hostel dogs Takwa and Nala are part of the family and stay in the compound as well. The house is equipped with hot water showers and the possibility to use the kitchen through out the day.

Moreover we offer you the possibility to stay with a host family during your volunteering with us. The charges remain the same, but you will get the unique experience of sharing your daily live with and in a Tanzanian family. They will provide you with everything that's necessary. All family members speak English fluently and are very welcoming. As their new family member you will have your own lockable room, featured with a bed and access to the living room, kitchen, bathroom and the beautiful compound. If staying with a guest family, we will of course still provide our 24/7 in-country support by our staff members. For further information please let us know that you are interested in staying in a guest family within your application on Volunteer World.
