Our Project

Over the course of 10 days, we will assist our partners on a variety of ongoing projects that  assist children with developmental disabilities in the area. The week begins with orientation and an exchanging of practices with the local teachers. We'll then accompany our partners into more rural village communities to help train the parents on techniques such as ABA and spread awareness of autism in the community. Our goal is to exchange knowledge with Tanzanian special education professionals as well as contribute to the well-being of special needs children in the community.

Culture & Exploration

In addition to our work in the community, we'll take time to explore our surroundings and take in the local culture. Get lost in the bustling craft markets, learn some basic Swahili phrases and meet members of a local Maasai tribe. Dine with local special education professionals and learn about the challenges facing children with special needs in East Africa. On the weekend, we'll head out of town on an iconic overnight African safari. Along with an expert guide, spot some of the most famous animals that roam the plains of Northern Tanzania - lions, giraffes, rhinos, zebras and cheetahs.
