"I've been helping out during meal times too. Whether it's cooking, serving, or tidying up, I'm happy to lend a hand. It's all part of creating a positive environment for these amazing kids."

"Teaching computer lessons to secondary school students was equally rewarding. I recognized the importance of digital skills in today's world, and it was fulfilling to empower students with the knowledge they need to thrive."

» I really like to look back. It was an instructive time. I was challenged, for example when I was teaching English, but it was a challenge that I was happy to take on, because the kids and people give you so much in return. With all the different project with help2kids you get to meet and to work with different people who are all great. Just go for it 🙂 «

»It was an unforgettable time for me. Althought it took me some courage to go to Tanzania it was the best desicion i have ever taken! The first 2 weeks i was helping and teaching at the nursery in the mornings. You will teach the kids some basic english or colors and so on. I will never foget how they always called me "teacha" To be part of that development is just priceless. You will also fall in love with the way of life in Tanzania. How warm and hospital people are. I loved how they all live together in peace and how relaxed they are. No matter where you will be volunteering with help2kids you will have a great time as it will teach you so much for your life!

» I had a great time during my stay in Tanzania. The help2kids campus is well located from the different projects. All the people are very nice and they helped me a lot getting to know the new place. I was helping to teach english at a primary school. During my stay there were three other volunteers with whom I could exchange ideas or help each other to prepare classes for the next day. We went out to eat together, we did a Safari tour, went to a rain forest and been on a trip to Zanzibar. I really enjoyed my time at the help2kids campus and i can recommend it for everyone! «
