Welcome to Hostel, where all profits go to support the NGO called CHILD HOPE FOUNDATION. We created the hostel so the project can be self-sustainable.
Hostel is located in a very secure area, in the city center of Moshi, Tanzania. We offer accommodation to short and long term volunteers, as well as backpackers and travellers. We have 4 and 6 mixed bedrooms where you can get to know other people really close, a double room for those who want more intimacy.
This fully furnished hostel with all facilities will make your stay comfortable. Hot water, mosquito nets, fridge, lockers, volleyball field, bar, swimming pool, Wifi… You can even watch movies or play some cards in our great living room combined with a spacious terrace, where you can chat with other volunteers for hours while looking at the moon and stars.
The best of all is that by staying with us you will be supporting the community .
We raise fund in order to replicate our women poultry project in other region i.e Serengeti,Tanga and Dar es salaam
We recruit international volunteers to participate in offering assistance to our local community partners in Kilimanjaro and Serengeti .They can offer vital assistance to ,rural health clinic,rural elementary school, also they can participate on small business development,computer training,,tree planting program, women empowerment ,seminars and workshop on health and entrepreneurship and responsible volunteering(serengeti)
Volunteers pay a program fee to help to provide the resource to accommodate them during the stay and also to support the communities(Mutual benefit of projects and volunteers) . Volunteers are accomodated with host families or in small hostel near by Project.
Why Serengeti and Kilimanjaro,it is the ideal sites for our program because it is the intersection of Poverty and opportunity.While the Majority of our neighbors live on less than a single day the area is rich and opportunity for generating income due to growing Agriculture and tourism sector."Tourism feeds off the natural and cultural diversity of the planet-it must contribute to its survival.

ACTIVITIES AROUND MOSHI
There are many different activities to do around Moshi, such as mountain climbing, visiting the safaris, relaxing on the beaches and immersing yourself in ethnic and cultural excursions.
Mt. Kilimanjaro is one of the main attractions around Moshi. People usually climb it in 6 days and the cost is about 1,200$. Amazing views from the top of this nearly 6,000 meters high mountain are well-worth the cost. CHILD HOPE FOUNDATION works with a local company, to provide safe and good deals to our volunteers and travelers.
Mt. Meru is the second highest peak in Tanzania, at nearly 4,600 meters high. Very good option for those who can’t afford to climb Mt Kilimanjaro. Most people climb it in 3 or 4 days and the price vary according to that, between 400-500$. The views at the summit are similarly amazing.
Climbing Ol Donoy Lengai is the third option, and maybe the hardest. It is an overnight hike, with some difficulties from the strong winds, but seeing fumaroles and sometimes even lava makes it all worthwhile. The price vary depending of how many people you share the transport with. Climbing the sacred mountain of the Masai can cost around 300$.
There are also day-hikes and excursions around Moshi, such as 100 meter high cascades or amazing hot springs in the wild
There are many different activities to do around Moshi, such as mountain climbing, visiting the safaris, relaxing on the beaches and immersing yourself in ethnic and cultural excursionsMountains
Serengeti National Park, The Crater of Ngorongoro, Tarangire, Arusha N.P and Lake Manyara are some of the game parks close to Moshi. Once you get to Tanzania it is always recommended for you to visit the safaris, no matter how expensive it may be.
The experience is akin to being in your own National Geographic documentary, simply amazing! The price can be around 165$ a day, if you share the Land Cruiser with at least 5 people. Otherwise, be prepared to pay more. We always try to help our guests to arrange for groups and share the costs.
• If you like swimming, bring your own goggles, they don’t sell them in Moshi
• Bring also earplugs (it can be a little noisy sometimes)
• Do not forget mosquito repellents and sunscreens
• Bring some US$ to pay for safari
