Words- Imtiaz Ullah
Volunteer travel is the perfect way to explore the world in a meaningful way. Travelling always does not mean exploring new places or meeting new people there is a greater connotation to it. It can be more gratifying when one travels for a cause. Mother Nature has given us these beautiful places to explore but it is our social responsibility to travel to these mesmerizing places and give something in return in our own possible ways. This is what I call “Volunteer Travelling” and if we travelers across horizons are aligned on this, we can make this world- a beautiful place to live.
In its endeavour to promote voluntary organisations across the globe, NomadLawyer presents Godson Charity based out of Tanzania through this blog.
Why Volunteering in Tanzania?
It will give you the opportunity to do community work and visit the sights of Moshi and Arusha City, including visiting some of the famous National parks in the world and the highest mountain peaks in Africa. It will also provide insight to the local tribes and cultures, and to chat with our local friendly population, who will teach you a little Swahili.
The mission of GODSON CHARITY is to provide the best sustainable services to Tanzanian poor local society/community and its surroundings environment.
We undertake key function through the following activities.
- Educating the children at various levels from nursery to university level.
- Assisting the provision of educational fees and costs associated with education.
- Advancing the quality of life and relieve the needs of the children through recreational and leisure activities.
- Developing the capacities and skills of the family members of the children in their family.
- Providing the necessary provision for the quality of life including housing, nutrition and medical care.
We have programs ranging from 1 – 24 weeks, in both Arusha and Moshi.
We provide the opportunity to combine both volunteering and adventure Safaris into one trip. You can volunteer with the local communities along with visiting the Serengeti, Manyara, Ngorongoro, Arusha, Mikumi, or Tarangire National Parks, as well as taking a holiday trip to the tropical beaches of Zanzibar, Bagamoyo, Mombasa or visiting the bustling city of Dar Es Salaam. Also whilst volunteering you can have chance to climb some of the highest peaks of Mountain in Africa such as Mt. Kilimanjaro, Mt. Meru, Mt.Kenya and Mt. OldonyoLengai.
These are all well-arranged programs, where we can offer wonderful experiences and time arrangements to suit you for your entire stay in Tanzania. For example, if you want a total of 4 weeks in Tanzania, we can arrange it for you to have the first two weeks getting dusty and dirty volunteering with the community, and then the second two weeks for wild adventuring and beach holidays. Feel free to adventure with us.
Caring for Children Care Centers
Tanzania, like many other African countries has many children that are affected by extreme poverty. This program offers volunteers the chance to care for some of these children. Volunteers will have the opportunity to teach, cook, wash and undertake other general activities performed at the Children’s Centers. More than anything, they will have the chance to give love and attention to these kids who so desperately need it.
Teaching Primary and Nursery School
We give the opportunity to teach in Nursery Schools and Primary School in collaboration with various school administration systems. Volunteers will provide the children with an opportunity to expand their horizons and learn from their experiences and develop greater skills for the betterment of their own futures.
Working and assisting in Healthy management
We provide an opportunity for medical professionals to share their knowledge and participate in Health Managements activities. Furthermore, medical students on their internship are encouraged to practice in hospitals and Primary Health Care Units to increase the ever-rising need for capacity in these hospitals.
We can offer Volunteers other specifically tailored volunteer projects. Please feel free to contact us if you should require any other programs to meet your interests.
How to become a Sponsor
1. Choose to pay school fees for a particular child for a certain amount of time. (“Example until he or she finishes his secondary education.”)
2. Choose to spay school fees for a particular child until she or he finishes his university education. In this option you can be able to send the funds directly to his or her school. Or send the funds directly to our bank account.
3. Choose to donate a certain amount once or each year towards, which will help us cover school fees for the children who do not have a sponsor.
If you cannot travel to volunteer, you can also donate through Nomadlawyer by going to the “Donate” page and if you wish to become a sponsor, do write to us, we will get you connected to the NGO.
NomadLawyer has collaborated with voluntary organisations across the globe to promote and bring these organisations before the world. I envision this site to be a one stop travel portal and believe that together we can improve cultural, ecological, and economic conditions around the world by changing the way people travel and create awareness pertaining to the travel.
