Volunteering in Tanzania

Cultural exchange and learning opportunities


The people in our village Chamazi, Dar Es Salaam are very friendly and welcoming. While you are here you will feel the spirit of Tanzanian people in our village since they are very passionate to welcome foreigners.


To be part of the Samaritan Volunteer Project means that you will get an unequal experience and even practice in our local community like dancing with drums, sewing a traditional dress, making African hairstyle, participating in village weddings, games and many others. You will engage with people of the neighborhood and you will have an opportunity to learn and practice our language Swahili
