SEEDS OF LOVE FOUNDATION

Love Wins All  




                 

                            Volunteering                

                                                 Everyone is welcome!


Seeds of Love Foundation welcome anyone who wishes to volunteer with them for any short or long period of time.

It is suggested that volunteers come with an idea of what they would like to do at Seeds of Love Foundation, reading the suggested roles before you arrive may be useful in deciding what you can do to help. The volunteers need to be pro-active and be prepared to jump in and get involved.

Fundraising before you come is also a good idea as funds are very limited at Seeds so any extra contributions you can make towards a project or the general running costs will be gratefully received.  

COST OF STAYING

The orphanage hasn’t finished yet and is still under construction. 

Due to its fairly remote location it is suggested that volunteers stay within the family house In Marangu Kilimanjaro. Volunteers are asked to contribute 220,000tsh (approx £75/$100) per week, this includes their accommodation, 3 meals a day and a weekly clothes wash.

If Volunteers want to stay in the hotels instead of family house, Contact us and we will send a Full Volunteering Package with Recommended hostels or hotels
