The people at Volunteer Tanzania are kind and helpful. My friends and I had a good time with Volunteer Tanzania. It was my very first trip to Africa, and I would definitely want to go back. It was my dream to one day work in Africa and in exact environment Volunteer Tanzania took me. As a nurse student I had not only a learning experience but also a working one, although supervised but at times they would let me practice as a nurse and get that feeling of being registered and licensed nurse. The hospital is a very good place to learn and grow as a junior nurse from abroad. If you are looking to learning and get experience in a different environment outside your comfort zone, then Tanzania is a place to be. Cardinal Lugambwa Hospital introduced me to almost everything I wished to experience.
Heidi Lillevang (25)Scottish Volunteer in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania
Loved my experience with Volunteer Tanzania. I got to help out in the emergency department, pediatric/male/female wards and the maternity department of the hospital. I witnessed/assisted with natural births, as well as witnessed c-sections in theatre. The people at the hospital were fabulous, as was Innocent and Angel (at the volunteer house). The food was excellent, as was the accommodation. Lots of activities to do in spare time, I went up to Arusha to do safaris, and Kilimanjaro, and spent a lot of time with coworkers at the hospital. The only thing I didn’t enjoy was getting the bus to and from work – if you can organise a driver then I would recommend doing that. I would do this experience again, without a shadow of a doubt, and highly recommend it!

“Volunteering in Tanzania was one of the best times I’ve ever had. From the moment we arrived everyone was lovely to us. It felt like we were part of their home. We ate together and they always made sure we had fun. If ever we needed guidance on where to go or what to do, they would help out, even if it meant arranging a bus at night to take us to a club all together!
Volunteering was really free and relaxed. We got to meet lots of people and feel like we were really getting involved in helping others out.
There are also quite a few good clubs in Dar-es-salaam which was a great surprise and something to definitely check out!
The atmosphere was always very upbeat and I really felt like I was at a home away from home. I know if I were to return, I would be welcomed back as an old friend. I will never forget my time in Tanzania, and only wish it lasted longer!”
