Bridge of Hope Tanzania
Bridge of Hope is a non-profit organization based in Arusha, Tanzania and run by alliance of volunteers spread around the world. We coordinate placement of international volunteers committed to giving meaning to life who seek to learn and contribute.
Bridge of Hope was born with the goal of providing safe, affordable and high quality placements in areas where there is a real need for volunteers. Bridge of Hope provides affordable placements by partnering with organizations based in the country where volunteers wish to work. This is extremely effective for a number of reasons.
- Local organizations are in the best position to see where volunteers are really needed. The staff in these organizations are locals, have been raised in the area and know it inside and out. They can speak the local language, they know the local people and are in the best position to provide guidance, safe supervision and support to you the volunteer.
- Partnering with local organizations reduces costs making the projects more affordable for you the volunteer. This means more people are able to volunteer resulting in higher volunteer numbers meaning more is achieved.
- The entire project fee that you pay goes to our partner organization. While this fee is necessary to pay for your accommodation, meals, airport pick up and orientation among other things, it is better that it goes into the community and helps develop the area you will be working rather than getting stuck in a western country.
Bridge of Hope set-up has open doors to organizations around the world that are willing for partnerships, yet one of the strengths of BH is our selection process. Every program that Bridge of Hope offers has been personally inspected and selected by our directors.
