Overall Experience
I learned a lot about myself and had some of my hesitations about working in Africa and the Middle East put to rest. - West Virginia University View Entire Review
You have to check out Amizade's programs in Tanzania. My experiences there really have been a high point in my undergraduate career.

About

Amizade volunteers will live within the community of Karagwe and serve with our partner community organizations. Volunteering frequently relates to supporting the installation of water systems on family homes, working on a sustainable farm, teaching in schools, working with a women’s rights organization, or to assisting with the construction of a Transitional Home for orphans. Service is only one component of the Amizade experience. Volunteers will also learn through speakers from local organizations, visits to local mosques or churches, and local cultural and recreational opportunities. Groups of Amizade Tanzania volunteers stay in a local hostel, while individual volunteers can be placed in a home stay with a local family.
