Accommodation

Volunteers in Tanzania are either accommodated in a volunteer house or a homestay with a host family. Volunteers can accept to share a room with one to five other volunteers of the same gender and volunteer houses can accommodate up to 30 volunteers at one time. Volunteers in homestays can expect to be living with at least four other volunteers. The living is basic but the volunteer house and homestays have running water and electricity, however, it is important to note that there is often power outage which affects the availability of hot water and power. Bedding is provided, however, you will need to bring your own towel and toiletries. It is also recommended to bring a sleeping bag for weekends away. In the volunteer house, there is a cook who prepares meals for the volunteers and there is a security guard. The local team is also available on a daily basis during the week and via phone over the weekend.
