Volunteering with Himiza was an amazing experience. I felt that I was not only able to gain hands-on understanding of the issues that Himiza was working on, but that I was also able to directly contribute my knowledge and skills to this work.
I truly felt that the team at Himiza was eager to learn and grow with me, which made the experience all the more exciting and personal. In addition, having the opportunity to live and work in Tanzania for a few months was once-in-a-lifetime. I am grateful to have had the time I spent volunteering to also take advantage of learning about the Tanzanian culture and to travel within the country. Rebecca Justus, from United States of America.
