Over het programma

The project

Empower young Tanzanian women facing adversity through our comprehensive volunteer program. Partnering with a secure shelter in Arusha, we support girls aged 13-24 who've experienced homelessness, neglect, unpaid labor, unconsensual marriages, unwanted pregnancies, trafficking, and sexual violence. Our holistic approach encompasses education, psychological, physical, and social development, breaking the cycles of poverty and violence. We provide formal education, vocational training, human rights education, and HIV/AIDS awareness, enhancing employability. Join us to make a lasting impact, equipping these resilient girls with essential life skills and opportunities for a brighter future.

This is a Community Development program which aims to create more awareness around women's rights and gender equality.

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. Many volunteers either work with the children in the daycare, work directly with the women during their business development and rehabilitation program, or conduct english teaching. Much of this program is about working with the women to understand their barriers and challenges as women in a developing society with little access to equal opportunity in work, education and the legal system.


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 neighbourhood 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 will be leaving close to the shelter and from your hostel, It will take you about 15 minutes on a Dala Dala to the woman shelter. Generally, you will finish up at the placement, around 2pm, where you can then return for lunch, and enjoy your afternoons.

Vrijetijdsactiviteiten

Discover the best of Arusha with an array of free-time activities, from thrilling African safaris to day trips and afternoon adventures. As Tanzania stands among the world's top safari destinations, seize the opportunity during your placement. At the White House, we offer several budget and group joining Safari Tours, fitting to your volunteer schedule and preferred parks (Arusha National Park, Serengeti, Tarangire, Lake Manyara, Ngorogoro Crater).

For nature enthusiasts, embark on hikes up Mt. Kilimanjaro and Mt. Meru, and we can guide you through the planning process, suggesting routes and durations.

If day trips are more your style, choose from an array of activities: hike to Mt. Meru waterfall, visit authentic Masai villages, swim in natural hot springs, explore man-made underground caves, or tour banana plantations. All these options can be easily arranged upon your arrival at the White House.

Afternoons off work offer a variety of options. Cool down in a hotel swimming pool, available to outsiders for a small fee, or paddle around Lake Duluti in a rented canoe surrounded by birds and monkeys. In case of rain, explore Arusha's Museum of Nature and Wildlife or visit the Cultural Heritage Center, a gallery with diverse shops. Enhance your downtime with these enriching experiences in Arusha.

The fee covers your living expenses whilst here in Tanzania, and a percentage goes towards your placement itself, to further support the projects. During your stay, you will be living at a vibrant volunteer house, located at The WHite House of Tanzania Hostel, only a short drive from the city centre.

Program Inclusions:

  • Accommodation at our lively volunteer and backpacker’s house
  • 2 meals per day (Breakfast and dinner)
  • Airport pick up
  • Orientation and town tour
  • In-country program support
  • Your placement

Afhaal aan de luchthaven op Kilimanjaro International Airport

We provide our volunteers with airport pick-up - from both Kilimanjaro International Airport and Arusha Domestic Airport. Just provide us with your arrival detail - date, exact time, flight number - and we will make sure our driver is waiting outside for you with a sign of your name and a big smile.

Accomodatie

During your stay you will be accommodated in the coziest and most friendly hostel in Arusha, The White House of Tanzania. Upon your arrival, you will meet our staff as well as the Mboje family, who runs and manages Fursa Projects Tanzania as well as the hostel. The family also lives on site once in Arusha, and there is therefore always staff around. 

The hostel is a newly renovated big house located in an area of Arusha called Njiro. It is approximately 15 minutes drive fromt the center of the city, but within 10 minutes walking from the house you will find a big compound called Njiro Complex. Here you will find ATMs, various restaurants, gym, cinema, supermarket and much more. From here, it is very easy to either find a taxi or to catch the local mini-buses - dalla-dalla's - and get to the center of Arusha. 

All the rooms in the hostel are spacious and clean with their own private ensuite-bathrooms with hot shower. We have no single rooms, and as a volunteer you will most likely share a room with other volunteers and travelers. However, we find that this makes the experience much richer for the volunteers, as they get to know their fellow house-mates that much better. 

The hostel have various common-areas both indoor and outdoor, where guests and volunteers relax and enjoy their evenings after a day full of adventure - either at their placements or on different trips. As mentioned in the section below, all three meals are included in your accommodation price and all guests and staff enjoy dinner together every night. This is usually a time of day, where guests and volunteers will share experiences and get new inspiration for activities for their days off. 

Included in your accommodation price, you will also find a good functioning WIFI at all times, so you can easily communicate with your friends and family at home.

Over de organisatie

Fursa Tanzania Projects seek to provide communities with education about sustainable solutions to their problems through the work of experienced volunteers.

Ontmoet je organisatie

The word "fursa" means "possibility" in Swahili and that is exactly what we wish to accomplish with these projects - to create possibilities for communities and individuals to grow and develop in order to create a better future. We seek to provide communities with education about sustainable solutions to their problems instead of fast and easy solutions. How do we plan to do that? By continues education provides by experienced individuals with knowledge and specific education to a certain field. And this is where we need you!

Dealing with the challenges of today requires problem-solvers who bring different perspectives and are willing to take risks. We are searching for strong individuals, who wish to bring their knowledge and education and pass it on to communities and work places in Arusha, Tanzania. We believe that this education and sharing of knowledge is the way to solve many of the problems, the developing countries in the 21st century are facing. But we need you to help us with it.

Fursa Tanzania projects emerged out of a pursuit to inspire and support the community. Having seen the bad effects of "voluntourism" many of the volunteering platforms create, we wished to find more sustainable projects, where the impacts will last and not just be forgotten with the next arriving volunteers. We wish to create platforms specifically for volunteers with the appropriate skills and this way ensure that the volunteers will be in surroundings where they feel safe and have an expertise. Look through our projects and see if we have one, that fits you. They get updated regularly, so don't worry if you don't find the one, you were looking for.  

Established in 2017, we’re an organization driven by progressive ideas and bold actions. Help us break the circle of "voluntourism" and projects who are ruining communities and families instead of keeping them together.
