16 German “weltwärts”-volunteers spend one year in Tanzania

Five months ago we entered Frankfurt airport together with fourteen other volunteers imagining we were about to embark on the most exciting year of our lives. We, Teresa and Julia, are the two current “weltwärts” volunteers working at SEA until August 2018. Already that day when we left our homes in Germany feels very far away. The uncertainties and fears with which we entered Tanzania have disappeared and we’ve developed a daily routine on the other side of the equator.
But what is this “weltwärts” program that enabled us, along with about 3500 young German volunteers to experience a whole year in a far away country?
