Description of the Project
In Tanzania private and public schools have a long holiday during the Month of December until early January. This is normally a most joyful moment. However; not all Children in the community enjoys the season as everybody due to social and economic challenges/limitations. In Partnership with local schools and the community members, this project has been designed to offer an opportunity for children and teenagers from all social-economic background, ethnicity and religions to have time together during end of the year festivals. We are intending to plant the seed of peace and harmony with various groups in the community.

Trying a variety of foods from other cultures is part of UVIKIUTA‘s philosophy for an authentic experience in Tanzania, and may be both fun and challenging. Food on our projects generally reflects the local cuisine. Some foods that are part of a regular diet at your home country may not be available during the program. Vegetarians can be accommodated. However volunteers with more specific dietary requirements may need to supplement the included meals at their own expense. Participants with food allergies (e.g., nuts) must inform the organisation about the existence and severity of the allergy. Three meals per day are provided to the Volunteers at the Youth accommodation. Meals in transit between airports and to/from Project, during tourism or outside designated project area are volunteer‘s responsibility.
