Neema Village

We invite you to join us in experiencing the satisfaction which comes from volunteering. If you are interested in taking some time out of your trip to create connections with people by using your skill to provide a needed service, sharing your knowledge or expertise to teach another, or providing materials and supplies to ease another’s burdens, we would welcome the opportunity to put you in touch with Neema Village - a baby home, mothering center, and widows home located in Arusha, Tanzania, East Africa. Neema Village is a 501(c)3 registered non-profit in the USA and it is a registered NGO in Tanzania.

Managing Director of African Traits, Godfrey Willy, spent time volunteering at Neema Village when it first opened in 2012 and he remains supportive of their endeavors today. We encourage you to consider adding a volunteer component to your African adventures. You’ll leave not only having enjoyed the many sights and wonders of Africa, but also with a sense of accomplishment having taken time to give to those less fortunate.

As part of African Traits’ ongoing commitment to promoting volunteerism, we are pleased to offer discounted rates on certain tour packages designed specifically for Neema Village volunteers.

Remember when you leave this earth, you can take nothing that you have received - only what you have given.
