“I really enjoyed my volunteering with Viva Tanzania very much and I was able to gain great experiences and get to know new people – even though my time there was short. I especially liked the nice and informal atmosphere in the hostel. I had the feeling to have a contact person for all questions and concerns and to all my wishes regarding the excursions was received. I felt comfortable with you from the first day, everyone is so friendly and helpful and the food in the hostel is really sooooo delicious – a big compliment to the mamas! With regard to my project, I received great support by you from the beginnig. First of all, the Town Tour was particularly helpful in order to get a first glimpse into the Dala Dalas (mini busses). Secondly, it was pretty great that I was accompanied to the project on my first day. Thank you for that. All in all, the 2 weeks were really a great experience for me – as I said, but unfortunately a bit short, but I was still able to gain intense insight into life in Tanzania and enjoy great moments – especially the safari was an unforgettable experience. I’m sure that you will see me again in the next few years – above all, I would like to climb Kilimanjaro at some point, which has not let me go since I saw it. Until then, I wish you and your entire team all the best! Keep up the good work – you guy are really great!”
