About this program

Volunteers stay with host families. The volunteer rooms are comfortable and may be shared with one or two other volunteers in Tanzania. Accommodation is usually within walking or cycling distance of the project or a short bus ride away.

Two common ingredients in Tanzanian cooking are coconut and bananas. Not just found in desserts, coconut milk often features in soups and in dishes based on fish, meat and poultry. A regularly encountered staple is Ugali, a porridge made from cornmeal. Chapati, the Indian bread, is often served, as are curry dishes, cassava and rice.

Dining in Tanzania involves sitting on the floor on a mat and eating using three fingers of the right hand. Hands are washed before and after, and dried on a towel which gets passed around the diners.
