You will have the chance to attend regular medical workshops and learn more about current local issues such as HIV and tropical diseases. Over the years Tanzania has tried hard to teach the younger generation about health awareness and disease prevention. During your two weeks you will be able to go to the local care centres and carry out fun and interactive activities with the children regarding different healthcare issues.

During the weekend you will get the opportunity to experience the breathtaking scenery in one of Tanzania's national parks.

For those who want to do a longer stay, this project is available as a 4-week program on select dates. Those joining us on the four week program will get extra visits and activities arranged during the other weekends.
