The Olokii projectprogram team will work closely with you both before your departure and during your stay toprovide a truly once – in – a lifetime experience for your group.Community serviceEvery community challenge is different sometimes your team will arrive at the start of aproject and will build from the ground up. In this case you may be clearing rubble diggingfoundations chipping rocks lifting and laying blocks or mixing cement.On other challengers you may arrive to find the building partially complete. In that case yourteam might concentrate on finishing work, roofing installing windows, doors, or roofing.Once the exterior of the classroom nears completion efforts focus on finishing interior. Everybuilding project is different.Everything you do on a construction site, whether it is hauling water sifting sand removing orplacing dirt mixing cement by hand or passing buckets of mortar to another team member ishelping a remote community improve its educational or health services. It is an inspiringprocess to be involved in.Accept that you don’t always have to be productive to have a good experience. Regardless ofthe work you perform community challenge teams inject enthusiasm and encourage thefamilies and community by sharing the burden of the constructions process.You do make a difference and are greatly appreciated. You will need to be patient andflexible. There will times of waiting for someone to show up, to make a decision or to just toget started. You can always work extra hard when the time comes. Make the most of thewaiting around time to share with the community. You may never have the opportunity again.Often the work to be done is very lab our – intensive.Clearing and leveling a site, hauling dirt, digging foundation, Transfer of delivery ofmaterials such as Sand, gravel, cement blocks and bags of Cement. Manual pressing cementblocks, Manual mixing cement, finishing floors, forming latrine, filling masonry joints withcement, assistant with a physical inventory of Construction materials.You will never be asked to do anything outside of your physical capacity and team work willbe encouraged at all times. No volunteer should be made to feel they have to do somethingthey not happy or comfortable doing.There are many tasks on a building site so ask the supervisor for jobs you feel comfortablewith. Be open and honest if you are not feeling useful enough or you feel you cannot do whatyou have been asked to. If you do have any reservations about any job you are assigned,please to not hesitate to raise these with the construction supervisor.
    • The days will be scheduled around the local working hours and appropriate temperaturesthroughout the day. Lunch, water and snacks will be provided on site and shared with allmembers of the building team.What Should I Expect?Volunteering abroad can be the most rewarding experience of your life and the mostchallenging at the same time. You will be immersed in a new culture, you will meetincredible, and you will learn a lot about yourself.Humility and patience are essential. One of the first things you will learn, whether it’sstanding in a queue at the post office, or waiting for the dial – up connection at the localinternet café is African Time. The locals will joke about it and, really, their approach is thewise one. Everything takes a long time and the outcome is often not what you might expect tohave or to get.You will make cultural blunders. It’s embarrassing but inevitable. A healthy sense of humorwill go a long way. My face still turns red when I remember the lovely little “purse”. I boughtin a San (Bushman) village. I took it to church services in Malawi for three years before oneof my African colleagues pointed out to me that it was a witch doctor’s bag and “norespectable Namibian or Malawian woman would ever take such a thing to church.”You will become the educational source. Your Abroad students, whether children or adults,will be eager to learn about your home country (bring postcards to show them), and will bejust as eager to tell you about theirs. One of the most successful English lessons was havingstudents write the oral proverbs and stories told in their villages, and then asking them tocreate their own original stories. If you would like to know more about the culture ortraditions of your host country, there’s no easier way than to assign it as an essay topic inwhich different students will write more to you about their homes and cultural aspects.These are some advantage on Volunteering with us in Tanzania. • Skill acquisition – job skills, communication skills, etc. • Personal and professional development and training. • Confidence • Experience - especially to be able to add to your to be able to add to your CV • A written/ verbal reference • Having fun • Meeting new people • Experiencing new challenges • Satisfaction from doing something to make a difference • The ability to explore different sorts of career of job opportunities in a voluntary capacity.
