The project

This project is all about young Tanzanian women and the challenges they go through in their life day today. We work with the woman shelter which safe house for girls in Arusha, Tanzania. We take in girls between the ages of 13 and 24 who have suffered from homelessness, neglect, unpaid labor, unconsensual marriage and ceremonies, unwanted pregnancy, trafficking, and sexual violence. We provide education, and encourage their individual development psychologically, physically, and socially. We believe with support each of our girls can lead happy, healthy lives. We believe that poverty and violence work in cycles, spreading from one generation to the next. If a girl does not have access to education, she will be at high risk of both poverty and violence throughout her life, and her children will be less likely to be educated, and will also be at high risk for poverty, homelessness, and violence throughout their lives. But, if that girl gets educated, she will have many more opportunities for a healthy and successful life, and she will teach and empower the next generation.

In addition to a formal education, we teach vocational and practical skills, their human rights, opening up more employment opportunities. We also emphasize confidence and decision making life skills, including an understanding of HIV/AIDS transmission and safety. This holistic approach aims to create further safeguards and help them escape the cycle of poverty.

Dagelijkse activiteiten

Your work

The start of work is flexible at any time between 9am and 10am. The tasks of the volunteers are diverse and mostly freely selectable. You can start your work day with taking care of the young children, giving a hand at the sewing shop or the hair dresser, or helping to approve the administration work at the House. At around noon, most of the older girls and women will come back from school, and in the afternoon you can help them with their homework and tutoring. Additionally, they are even open to some educational games you might bring along and introduce to them. You will work together with the director Aristides, the grown up girls, and the young children based on your interests and the needs of the project. Some days you might be asked to give a helping hand with the daily cooking, shopping, or cleaning of the compound.

Some days might not come with a special task to do for you, so you have to be a bit creative and ask where your help is needed. Once in a while, you can take some of the girls on a walk through the neighborhood and listen to their stories and problems. Please Keep in mind that the girls and women were victims of human trafficking, were raped or experienced other horrible things. Please be confidential about what you are being told by the girls and be sensitive about their background. Don’t ask them anything that could make them feel uncomfortable. The women shelter has to remain a safe space for them!

You can help them to prepare for the next market where they will sell their products, or you could even start a fundraising campaign. Since most of the girls were not able to finish school or to attend college, donations are always needed to ensure a better future for the girls after their graduation, since schools and colleges in Tanzania are not for free.

You will be leaving close to the shelter and from your hostel, It will take you about 15 minutes walking to the woman shelter. As a volunteer your day will start in the morning at around 10am. You can start your day by taking care of the young children while their mothers attend school. 

At around noon the older girls and women will come back from school. In the afternoon you can help them with their homework and give tuition. Play with the residents, draw, play games or simply chat and listen to their stories and problems. Some of the days you will be assigned to a specific group of girls to work with or a goal orientated plan to work on, depending on the skills or support you will be providing. Your 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. As mention above that you will be living very close to the shelter where on your lunch break, you can walk back to the hostel to have your lunch and then get back to the project until 3 PM or we can may have a lunch pack with you. When you arrive and sign up with us, these details can be planned further. 

Vrijetijdsactiviteiten

In Arusha, there are plenty of free time activities to do, both multiple-day trips, one-day trips and afternoon activities. As Tanzania are one of the best places in the world to go on safari, there is plenty opportunity to do so during your placement. At the White House, we can help you customize the safari of your dreams and to make it fit your timetable. Depending on how many days, which parks (Arusha National Park, Serengeti, Tarangire, Lake Manyara, Ngorogoro Crater), camping or lodging and whether you wish to be part of a group or travel on a private safari we can help you arrange it all. 

As well as safaris there is also plenty of possibility to hike our beautiful mountains, Mt. Kilimanjaro and Mt. Meru. Regarding both these mountain treks we can help you arrange everything and advise you about number of days, the different routes and so on. 

If you are more in the mood for day-trips, there are tons to choose from. Hiking to Mt. Meru waterfall, visiting authentic Masai villages, swimming in natural hot springs, making coffee the hills of Mt. Kilimanjaro, visiting man-made underground caves and visiting banana plantations are just few of the suggestions, we can give you. All these can be arranged from the White House upon your arrival. 

During the afternoons when you are off work, there's also plenty of things to do and see. In the warm weather here in Tanzania, it can be well needed to cool down in a cold swimming pool. Most of the hotels in town offers guests from outside the hotel to use the pool for a small fee. This way you and your friends can get to relax after a day of work. If you are more adventurous and in the mood for an activity, we recommend you to go to Lake Duluti just outside of Arusha, rent a canoe and paddle around the lake for some hours while watching the birds and monkeys along the shore. This relaxing experience will help you gain energy for the rest of your work-week. In case if rainy weather, Arusha has one museum to offer - the Museum of Nature and Wildlife. It doesn't take many hours to walk through, but it can be a fun and different activity. Or you can pay a visit to the Cultural Heritage Center, which is a gallery that has many small shops to visit too.
