St Bedes School, Musoma, Tanzania
School Groups

Go MAD has over five years of experience in running safe and rewarding school trips to Tanzania.  All our students come back to the UK with valuable life-changing skills that give them a sense of purpose, responsibility and pride.


Last year over 200 school students from the UK made a difference with us. If you are a school leader please get in touch for more information and we will arrange a visit so you can see exactly what we do. 

Marsabit volunteers, Kenya
Gap Year

We understand that you want to do something meaningful with your precious time out but you don't want it to cost the earth.  You also might have concerns about travelling alone to Africa.


At Go MAD you will meet like-minded travellers who will quickly become friends.  We support you every step of the way and a volunteering placement will give you valuable skills that really improve your CV! 

Medical career break, Musoma

We urgently need people to help drive and lead our projects in Africa.  If you have any professional experience eg medical, financial, agricultural or legal please do get in touch and we'll give you more information on the type of projects that you could undertake. 


Sign up as a group or come on your own.  Stay for as little or as long as you like.  You won’t regret it.  

Family volunteering, Mtwara

Our family volunteering adventures provide a very special way to bond with your children. Working together to give something back, you will create unique memories that will last a lifetime. 


Our volunteers are of all ages.  The youngest we have had was six and the oldest nearly 80! 

Land Rover in Marsabit, Kenya

Land Rovers are crucial to our work in Tanzania. They transport teams to the remote villages carrying materials on the roof and tools in the back. Our Red Land Rover Defender 110, known to Go Madders as 'The Red Rocket', acts as an ambulance service transporting sick people from the villages to the medical centre.
