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?

Creative Festival of Water March 2015 – Matemwe, Zanzibar

In Unguja and Pemba – the islands of Zanzibar – we are surrounded by water – and the monsoons bring us fresh water every season. We love our water – but we have our fair share of water problems too!

For World Water Day 2015, the Creative Festival of Water will celebrate the water we have, the water we’d like and what people are doing across the islands of Zanzibar to achieve this.
