Overall Rating:/ 10I volunteered in Tanzania for 2 weeks in October 2012 through Love Volunteers and loved it! Organizing my trip through Love Volunteers was great, they were helpful, friendly and efficient and were flexible enough that I was able to change things once I was there.
The placements in Tanzania were fantastic, I spent time in the Orphanage, School, Daycare Centre and with the widows groups. Everyone is friendly and welcoming and the whole experience was fantastic. The country coordinator is very welcoming and allows you the flexibility of being able to see all the projects and deciding which you like best. The children are so appreciative of any time you spend with them and always extremely happy.
The facilities are quite basic - bucket showers etc (although with a trip to Africa I was expecting this) and it is amazing how quickly you get used to a much more simple life.
During my short stay I meet amazing people and experienced a different and beautiful culture. I would love to go back and would recommend it to everyone. The only thing I would change is that I would take more things with me for the children. They love learning new things and having fun activities to do with you.
