Our project is located in Chamazi, Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania. We run the nursery school and an Education Centre where professional teachers and volunteers have regular lessons for more than 100 children from low-income families.
In most local families there are many children and youth who have no motivation with education, often they spend a lot of time in the streets losing the opportunity of getting an education
I spent a wonderful month with Emmanuel and the children at the school. I will never forget his kindness and that of the people of the village. The children are lovely, they are happy to meet strangers who come to teach them and to share moments with them.
Emmanuel and the Samaritans project offers a once and a lifetime opportunity to become part of a village community in a country like Tanzania. The lifestyle here is basic and fulfilling, the food is traditional and delicious, and the village is one of the safest places I have been in my travels.
It is a mind-changing place, the village is one of the most friendly places I have seen. The work with the kids is great, they are really willing to learn anything you can teach them. Every day you see all of those happy and smiley faces, and the time goes on without you realize it.
The place is lovely and very friendly. It was such a pleasure to meet people and to discover their way of life. As a volunteer, we could teach English, mathematics, drawing, etc with around 30 kids (ages 2 to 15 years old). We also practiced sports, games, and dance. Very magic moments!
We need all kinds of simple things such as pencils, pens, markers, notebooks, workbooks, colors for painting. Just text us!
