In January 2016, my wife and I started planning a year long trip around the world for our family of 7.  It was a journey of a lifetime for all of us, with stops at many Wonders of the World.  But now that we have returned home and reflected on our entire journey, the one highlight that everyone agreed upon was our time volunteering with YAAPHA.

My journey to people living with hope,

giving me hope.

 

Margarida  Alho  from Switzerland

After longing for some months to finally get to Moshi, here I am with YAAPHA (Youth in Action Against Poverty, HIV and AIDS), which was started by Peter  Bundala, with his background as a teacher, a carpenter, a farmer,  studies in development, cooperation  and environmental issues and with much more further knowledge and skills. He and his indispensable friends and  supporters  catched me right away with their open spoken and hands on way.

SUZANNE SPENCER From Scotland

 

 I have been working at the moshi office for 3 weeks now and have been involved with various groups during this period.

The majority of groups are in need of funding to explore their ideas and establish projects. As a lot of the youth have nothing to do and no opportunities, I defiantly feel that a lot of the older youth would benefit from vocational training and financial support to achieve skills. Then they could seek employment and have choices in their lives.

Rafal (Szczecin, Poland)

 

Ever since I launched my interest in traveling to Tanzania 2013, I have been very impressed by YAAPHA's work. Thanks to a very detailed description of available programs I never had any doubts that taking part in HIV/AIDS program was the best possible decision.

 Amanda Philips

I volunteered in Tanzania for 2 weeks in May 2016 through YAAPHA TANZANIA and loved it. Organizing my trip through YAAPHA was great, they were helpful, friendly and efficient and were flexible enough that I was able to change things once I was there.

Clemmie Anderson

Travelling to volunteer in Tanzania was the first time I have ever done anything of such a nature and, almost immediately, I knew how worthwhile an experience it was going to be. I met with staff at the Organization multiple times during my first few days in Moshi to set goals and be orientated within the new environment

I encourage anyone who wants to embark on a mission trip to apply to YAAPHA. The Tanzania trip I went on last summer was even better than I expected ( and I had high expectations!) If you are thinking of joining the Tanzania trip I would say you need to like kids. This is an unbelievable experience to be role models to children and teach the English too
