Dymphna Special School welcomes volunteers from around the world.
While some volunteers come from a background of working with children and/or of working with people with disabilities, the School welcomes anyone who has a genuine desire to support the children and the School.
Most volunteers prefer to be at the School for at least two weeks, but shorter periods of volunteering can be arranged.
You can stay with Mary at the School through Itwangi Hostel and Volunteer Experience. This low cost option allows you to immerse yourself in School and Arushan life. Please visit the Itwangi Hostel and Volunteer Experience website to find out more.
If you would prefer, Ujamaa Hostel offers an alternative to onsite accommodation.
You can read a first-hand account of volunteering here. You can also follow Itwangi Hostel and Volunteer Experience on Twitter!
