This is an empowerment program based in Tanzania. The mamas and girls come from some truly heart-breaking backgrounds, including being shamed for being HIV positive. This volunteer program is especially suitable for:
Leeftijd 18+
Alleenstaanden
Koppels
Families
Groepen
50+

In this program, volunteers with good hearts and an open mind are needed. Empowering Woman and Girls is a program designed to empower groups who come from a truly heartbreaking background; from being shamed for being HIV positive to abandonment due to assault, and a level of poverty that will be hard for most people from the western world to imagine.

The goals are to help woman become self sufficient and to recruit and help more. Some of the opportunities are community work, counseling to HIV victims and home victims, palliative care, and youth programs including training health at school and communities.

Volunteers should follow these roles:

  • Attend their duties at the placements from Monday to Friday.
  • In the case of changing placements, the volunteer has to have a meeting with all the staff at the current placement.
  • Stay at the placement for the required time (hangovers cannot be excuses to not attend to your duties).
  • Report to the coordinators, supervisors, or placements whenever sick or unable to attend; it is best to provide prior notice.

Volunteers should expect to be working with adults and old women. The conditions in these centers and institutions might not be what you expect, and the approaches to the environment can differ. It is better to approach this project with limited or no expectations. Rather, expect to be proactive and adapt by initiating ways to improve the conditions, as any activity can be assigned to any volunteer. It is imperative to familiarize yourself with the Tanzanian curriculum.

This project involves teaching woman skills such as gardening, crafts, English, entrepreneurship, business skills, IT, and finance skills. These are all flexible depending on your skills and comfort zone.

Participation in any of these activities depends on how comfortable you are with tending to the task provided. If a volunteer feels uncomfortable with a task, it is okay to be substituted with a member of staff. 

Volunteers are not required to bring anything to your volunteer placements, but if you feel like donating and sharing it will be appreciated. There are many needs due to the limited resources the centers have. 

Dagelijkse activiteiten

In general, volunteers have the freedom to choose how they spend the day. However, a daily routine is recommended and may be coordinated with the project coordinators based on your program. A general day may look like this:

  • Breakfast between 6:30 and 7:30am
  • Commuting to placement via public transport
  • Lunch between 12:30am and 3:00pm either at the placement or at the accommodation
  • Placements end usually between 2pm and 4pm depending on the project
  • Free time for the rest of the day and preparation for the placement the day after (if necessary)
  • Dinner between 6:30pm and 7:30pm
  • Visiting a house of babies after come back from your placement or during the weekend.

Wave and our team will see you. On the way to the volunteer house, the coordinator will give you a short briefing about the country and Arusha in general. We will give you a paper with your name, with full information about your placement and details.

You will get to meet and know the ground team while giving you a house tour. We will show you your room, and the next day you will have orientation.

Accomodatie

Volunteers in Arusha are accommodated in a volunteer house and home stay. Volunteers can expect to share a room with one to five other volunteers of the same gender. The  house provides a comfortable and warm stay with running water and electricity. However, it is important to note that there are often power outages which may affect availability of hot water. Bedding is provided, which includes a pillow with pillow case, bottom and top sheet. You will need to bring your own towel and toiletries. 

In the volunteer house, there is a cook who prepares meals and a cleaner who keeps the place clean and tidy. Safety is paramount, therefore there is also a security guard during day and night. Staff members are available on a daily basis during the week, and via phone over the weekend. All volunteers under the age of 18 years are accommodated in a separate room in the volunteer house. To access the internet during your program, we recommend bringing an unlocked mobile phone and purchasing a local SIM card in Arusha. The local staff will assist you with this upon arrival.

Bungalo
Eten & Drank

One of the greatest ways to explore Tanzania is to eat like the locals. To make things easy for you, your program fee covers the cost of your main meals, which will be cooked by the in-house mamas.

Because we choose to partner with international people, the mamas will usually be cooking food typical to the Tanzanian taste. This is an authentic way to get a taste of the wonderful flavors of Arusha, and immerse yourself fully in the local culture.

All programs will include options for vegan, vegetarian, gluten free, and other diets. You should note any dietary requirements in your application so we can make sure the program caters to your needs beforehand. 

The number of meals provided varies from program to program. Our programs fee covers breakfast, lunch, dinner.

The project fee includes three meals per day, 7 days per week. Meals generally consist of authentic Tanzanian cuisine, with some western style dishes. A typical breakfast may entail eggs, bread with butter and jam, pancakes, fruits, tea and coffee.

Lunch and dinner usually contain options of meat and fish as well as vegetables and fruits. Rice, potatoes, pasta, and fries may be served, topped with typical Tanzanian sauces and stews.

We are extremely mindful of food allergies and will adapt to requests accordingly.
