Become a volunteer
WOULD YOU LIKE TO EXPERIENCE AFRICA?
As a volunteer in Future and Hope you will experience Tanzania in a very special way. You will not arrive as a tourist but as somebody who together with you experiences also can do an effort to help the street children of Sumbawanga. You will get in close contact with the daily life of the Tanzanians. You will experience joy and dancing but you will also meet with the problems and trouble that is a part of most Tanzanians life. You will also meet volunteers and other people, who have decide to live in this part of the world in order to help the people there.
Your work as a volunteer will consist of helping on the homes, but you will also have the possiblity to tailor your own stay and offer any special competences you pocess. Are you good at ball games – maybe you can start a sports club. Are you good at needlework, maybe you can teach this. Are you good at writing, maybe you can start a journalist group who can write columns for the Danish newsletter. Only your fantasy sets the limits. With the proper attitude, desire and flair for children you will come to love them – and they will love you. You will get an experience, which you can never forget.
In order to become volunteer in Future and Hope you must be at least 20 years old. You must be willing to go for at least 3-5 months, having been engaged in a church - and have desire and courage to live in a culture which is very different from the one you know in Denmark.
Future and Hope will help you to arrange it all. It costs around DKK 15,000-20,000 DDK which includes airplane ticket, visa and residence permit, insurance, transportation to and from Sumbawanga, Swahili language education in Tanzania and a place to stay. The start-up and departure is in either January or August.
You are always welcome to contact Future and Hopes project coordinator Bente Solsø Dommert, (45) 30280781 – or to send an email to the address: firstname.lastname@example.org
