Tips and Tricks for planning Volunteering in Tanzania

  • #1. Book first 2 weeks of volunteering. Talk with people online (Facebook, Skype), research different NGOs and find the one that you like for the start.

 

  • #2. When you’re in Africa, talk with people in person, ask many questions, visit different NGOs and find the next place to go.

 

  • #3. Prepare cash in advance. You don’t need a lot of money for 2 months (I’ll update my costs as the time pass)

 

  • #4. Bring long-sleeved clothes. Sometimes you can wear a T-shirt, but you won’t need shorts. During the night it can be cold, so I suggest bringing a jacket.

 

  • #5. Bring the clothes that you’ll not regret if it gets dirty. I suggest brown, black, navy.

 

  • #6. Buy in advance: cosmetics (here is expensive and limited with options), some sweets or anything that you really love (I bought a chocolate for 3$ and the sweets are the most expensive food).

 

  • #7. Buy medicines in advance. I had a problem in finding in the pharmacy the medicines that I needed.
