We know what we do
All our Tanzanian staff members grew up in Arusha and are trained in the fields of education and tourism. All our German staff members worked as volunteers or interns in Tanzania. The combination of our knowledge and our experiences makes us experts in what we do. All our partner projects were chosen carefully according to their mission and their sustainability. We fully support our projects and consider them to be useful for the people they are working with and the Tanzanian society as a whole.
We take responsibility
As a local NGO we take responsibility in many different ways. Our staff earns a fair and decent wage which enables them to provide for their families. Furthermore we pay the schools fees for their children offering them a better future. On the other hand we support our partner projects through the work of our volunteers and interns as well as different types of donations for a better future. We work towards a lasting change in society. Viva Tanzania stands for an exchange at eye level because people do not need pity, but value.
We take care
In contrast to other organizations, you will have constant contact with those responsible for Viva Tanzania. We greet you as soon as you arrive, show you around the city, explain everything you need to know and bring you personally to the project on the first day of work. In addition, at least one member of our team is in the hostel all day. If you have worries or a problem you can reach us at any time and everyone will try to help so you can enjoy your stay to the fullest.
