Thanks to the Soapbox Team

We had the most amazing time with our volunteer group from the UK.
For two weeks they worked in various projects like schools, an orphanage, a safe house for girls and on a medical outreach! They taught, painted walls, gave out medicine and played with the children. They were really busy and definitely left their tracks behind.
It was so nice having them and all we can say is: Asante sana na Karibuni tena (thank you very much and welcome again).

Taylor and Sidney from the US are supporting our community work in Arusha.
Taylor is working in the Pippi House, a safe house for girls. She is helping the girls with their homework, taking care of their children so the mothers can attend school and assisting with the counseling lessons.
Sidney is gaining experiences in the African Court of Human and People’s Right, where she is doing office work and gaining an inside look of how a court works in Tanzania.
Claudine and Sandrine are our medical interns from Canada. They will stay in Lushoto for a two moth internship. They are volunteering in the Lushoto District Hospital learning about how to treat patients when resources are limited.

We wish all four a nice stay in Tanzania, life changing experiences in their projects and friendships that will last a lifetime!

The Albino African people have been attacked, killed, dismembered, had their graves dug up and desecrated all for the belief the witch doctors have passed on to the people, their body parts carry magic powers.
