Half day teaching

I booked a trip to Tanzania to climb Mt Kilimanjaro in July 2019 but wanted to feel like I had "given" something to the local community. I discovered the wonderful work of YAAPHA and contacted Peter Bandula. Following a very friendly and helpful conversation with Peter, it was arranged that I could volunteer for half a day at the school teaching English, Maths and playing games with the children. Not only did I climb to the top of Mt Kili but had one of the best experiences of my life helping at the school. I have sponsored 2 children from the school and plan on continuing to make donations to help the work they do. Peter and his team are just so friendly and helpful, I couldn't recommend more spending time in Moshi at this school! thank you so much for this opportunity... now my daughter wants to do this too :)

Organization Response

Thank you so much Michelle and looking forward to see you again in Tanzania.
