Programs in Tanzania 

From adventures to service, local Tanzanians welcome you with big smiles and are genuinely excited to share their culture and customs.


Karibu Tanzania! You know a country is special when the most often-used phrase is ‘you are welcome.’ Sights such as the Serengeti, Mt. Kilimanjaro, and Zanzibar may be why visitors come to Tanzania, but the people are why they return. With warm welcomes, long handshakes, and wide smiles, Kiswahili culture creeps into your very marrow. I have honestly seen no other place where people of vastly different religions, cultures, and tribes coexist with such warmth and inclusivity. I would encourage anyone to visit twice — first as a tourist and second, and forever after, as family.
