Cultural Exposure project will be hosted in the village of Mwika in Northern Tanzania. The project is aiming to expose volunteers and local community to people from different cultural, religious, geographic and socio-economic backgrounds and in so doing provide the opportunity for all to develop a greater understanding of diversity. For over years now the project allows volunteers to interact with and learn from people who are different from themselves and to participate in new and unique experiences beyond their own communities. Cultural exchange assists everybody involved to develop positive relationships with others, understand a broader range of perspectives, and develop the knowledge and skills needed for participation in our multicultural society.

Volunteers will be involved in number of activities leading to Cultural exposure like Kiswahili Language, cooking classes, home stay, arts and craft. Other activities will include meeting senior citizens for story sharing about the past and visiting cultural sites including ritual sites. On arrival the volunteer will receive a calendar of activities indicating activities of each particular day

Educational activities: We will participate in a number of workshops and debates to involve local youth and senior citizens around cultural issues. Impact of colonialism and globalization in local culture and economic development might lead some of the debates and discussions. Please, bring some information from your local community for sharing.
