Welcome to Tanzania!

by Community Forests International on November 12, 2010

November 1st was departure day for our two CIDA interns Lisa and Brennan, who after 30 hours in transit arrived at Kilimanjaro Airport, near Moshi, Tanzania. They were met there by members of Afrishare Solutions, a local NGO that offers cultural and Swahili training in Moshi, a small town in the foothills of the famous Kilimanjaro mountain. Ibrahim Mkwizu, the director of Afrishare, has a long history of intercultural and volunteer exchange work in Tanzania and the United States. He has recently launched Afrishare Solutions to allow foreign volunteers to participate in volunteer job placements around Moshi, such as schools and orphanages. Lisa and Brennan enjoyed a week of Swahili and cultural lessons, helping them easing their way into Tanzanian culture. Many thanks to the people at Afrishare who can be found at
