“Vision for Youth became my second family. From never having heard of the city of Arusha, it suddenly became a place that I immediately connected with – thanks to the people that welcomed me so wholeheartedly. It’s the personal touch, the laughs we shared, the creative projects we realized together that will always be part of me. Every week was a new adventure, where we got one step closer to our common goal – building a responsible and independent society” - Sophie, communications volunteer.
