The Amani Centre has always welcomed volunteers from around the world. Volunteers can be students looking for a life experience or professional Physiotherapists, looking for specialist work experience with the disbbled.
What would I be doing?
As a volunteer, you become a member of the Amani Community. There is a short induction at the beginning which helps you to settle into your new environment. You will undertake various activities within the organisation which will include playing with children, assisting the teachers in the classroom, going on home visit. You will also have the opportunity to visit the other Centres. You will be allocated a member of staff as your contact point and someone at whom you can direct your questions.
What is Morogoro like?
Morogoro is a typical African town, with street markets and a variety of hotels, clubs and restaurants where you can eat, and dance.. It is surrounded by the Uluguru mountains, which rise to 2650 metres, and make for wonderful for hiking Mikumi National Park is a two hour trip away. Here, in one of Tanzania’s smaller parks, the evening and morning game drives enable you to see elephants, zebra, giraffe, lions and more in their natural habitat.
Where would I sleep?
You will sleep in the hostel, which has a range of accommodation.
What will I eat?
You will be offered the menu in the Amani café, where food is cooked fresh every day. A typical meal in Tanzania consists of rice or ugali, a stiff porridge made with maize, beans, and some chicken or fish.
Will I need a VISA?
As a volunteer you will need to have an appropriate Visa, which the Amani Centre will be able to help sort out. The great thing about this Visa is that you can enter the National Parks at African rates, which is a huge saving…
Health and Safety
You will be expected to take the work seriously, and to treat everyone with respect. When dealing with children, staff and volunteers, it is imperative that the Code of Conduct rules are followed. They are here for your safety. You should get advice from your own doctor about any inoculations you may need, and whether you will want to take any preventative medication for malaria.
