Program Includes:

Pre-departure Support: ELI's staff is very knowledgeable and happy to help volunteers and interns to prepare for their travels.

Airport Pickup: Volunteers are met at the Kilimanjaro airport and provided with transportation to the volunteer house

In-country Orientation: Each volunteer program starts with a two to three day orientation which covers important topics on the logistics of living and working in Tanzania, city tours, and help with transportation.

In-country Staff Support: ELI's Tanzania coordinator has years of experience working with visitors to Tanzania. He is very resourceful and on call 24/7 in case of emergency.

Accommodations: Volunteers will stay in a volunteer house with the coordinator and his extended family. The house is very comfortable and a refuge from the stresses of village life. At the same time, volunteers get a taste of Tanzanian family life.
