What people say
I consider myself extremely privileged to have been involved as a volunteer with this project from 2013-2016. I have worked and travelled in many foreign countries but this was by far the most rewarding experience in my life.
My time in Tanzania was absolutely brilliant and I think about it everyday, the time I spent there ranks very highly in my most rewarding periods of time.
When I left Tanzania, after my year there, I kept in touch with many friends and staff in Mikindani and have been back every year since.
I enjoyed my time immensely and will never forget my friends in Mikindani.
Living and working in Mikindani is a real experience. It is at the same time exhilarating, refreshing, infuriating and beautiful!
