Tanzania Environmental, Health and Disability Services Organization (TEHDSO)

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 2 people are interested

We intend to visit the disabled clients in their homes and work together with them, stay with them, help them on their problems by physical, psychological and educational support.
The team will support them materials like medicines (anti pains or multivitamins) clothes distribution, school material support and food support.
You will learn a lot pertaining with the cause of their problems, their living standards, economical issues, their customs and believes on their malformations. The volunteers will benefit more on their exposure to Tanzanian civilians as they are very friendly to volunteers. Will experience different family activities and their cultural food including local fruits, local dances and traditional musics. Though they are disabled but they do some of the activities at their own, so volunteers will learn many things from these people. These group of people do expect much to learn from volunteers on their country customs and behaviour, their interest and their hobby, the team will work against the clients expectations.
The teams will stay at the Executive Director Family for the whole days of the stay and will provided meals and breakfast at a local available foods in the local context. The organization has made a very cheap cost for the stay of the volunteer as you can see on our website. www.envaya.org/tehdso
