Arusha Volunteers is a Non Profit Volunteer Organization based in Arusha, Tanzania, that accepts volunteers from all around the globe to come and help out in the local community, and experience the Tanzanian way of life! AV is run by Mary Muna Managing Director, Gerald Mkama volunteer Coordinator, who are both from Tanzania.
Gerald and Mary began working with volunteers through an organization in Arusha from 2010.
Arusha Volunteers receive volunteers from countries across the globe, provides accommodation and meals for them, supports them as they transition into a new culture, and arranges placements for them depending on their skills and background. These placements include work in orphanages and schools and medical placements.
This made a huge improvement to the way Arusha Volunteers functioned, and since then we have had a very successful year of volunteers. In June 2010, Arusha Volunteers decided that with the mounting interest in safaris among the volunteers, they would give a hand at starting their own safaris for volunteers. The NGOs has Tours and Safaris, it was created, and has been hugely successful in providing volunteers with the best possible service and safari experience. VE A now has a solid, reliable team of staff who are dedicated to ensuring volunteers get the most out of their experience in Tanzania, and leave feeling fully satisfied and proud that they have been able to make a difference!
