Name: Emily DentonCountry: CanadaProffesional: TeacherThis was my second big travel experience on my own, I had a great experience joining the GTLV program.
I stayed in Kilimanjaro for seven weeks to teach English and had a great experience doing this. The kids are great; accommodation was awesome: safe and good place with very good food! There are also lots of things to see and do, next to the volunteer work. I had lot of fun with the people in the volunteer house. The weekend trips were precisely precisely organized. The staff was always friendly and willing to help if you have a question. Thanks for the opportunity, very memorable.

Name: Lian BohlerCountry: NorwayProffesional: TeacherI would recommend this program to everyone who is interested in volunteering in Tanzania. I wish that I was able to stay longer and hope to contribute my time in future.
The food was delicious and accommodation was in a safe and central location. The living space is comfortable and in a quiet and peaceful area. Teaching English was generous experience at a local school. Thank you GTLV Volunteer organization for a wonderful experience.
Name: Joe JoeCountry: USAProffesional: The street children program appears well systematized and smoothly run. It was completely adverse to what I expected. I had thought it would literally be unorganized with kids of and of the street, the school, uniform and equipment, books etc was refreshing and I do get an impression that this will make a large difference to these kids’ lives. I feel in my month alone kids seemed to make much progress. I feel I have gained much experience and would not be adverse to work with children in the futures. My personal experience of the program has been more positive, I always been smiling and every day I have relished teaching. I build up very strong bonds with the children and feels heart wrenching to came away from them. The bonds made with the colleagues are also strong and I can keep in touch with them. The food and accommodation were great.
