Volunteers on Gap Year programme, Tanzania

You won't just change someone else's life for the better.  You'll come back a different and better person.

Life-changing stuff

Here are just a few of the many comments we've had from people who have volunteered with us in Tanzania:

Our trip to Tanzania was better than fantastic; it was awesome and we can’t wait to go again! We were able to do such a wide varieties of things from building a water tank, pit latrine and goat shed to helping in the orphanage and showing the children some love, care and attention.

We thoroughly enjoyed sharing our holiday with other families as well as the Go MAD team. We had the opportunity to go on safari in the Serengeti midway through our trip and at the end of our trip we had a relaxing holiday in another part of Tanzania which Go MAD helped us organise.

We have some memories that will stay with us for the rest of our lives. It has changed us. We think the projects that Go MAD complete are fantastic and life changing. Our children loved all the different elements of the trip too - there was something for everyone!

Tanzania now has a big place in my heart! It’s filled with so many amazing people who have become lifelong friends. The people and communities were extremely welcoming, friendly and grateful. My adventure with Go MAD was a life-changing experience and I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone. If you want to serve and have a good time with lots of fun and adventure, you can do it in Tanzania. You will be making a difference and I guarantee you won’t come back unchanged.

It seems somewhat of a cliché to tell you my gap year changed my life. In fact, it wasn’t really my ‘gap year’, as such, it was more the 3 months I spent in Musoma with Go MAD.

Going on a Go MAD trip to Tanzania is a fun, encouraging, adventurous and challenging. Musoma is a beautiful place, situated right by Lake Victoria. While here we have become teachers, builders, farmers and nurses. As a team we have been able to see first-hand the needs of a third world country. We have seen the hunger, the dirty water sources, the poor living conditions, and the lack of education of many in the villages. We have loved this fantastic opportunity to make a difference where it is needed the most.

Since arriving in Musoma 3 weeks ago we have already become half Tanzanian and our Swahili is developing slowly but surely. Go MAD really helped us to prepare for a such a different way of life. I am having the most incredible time - so far it’s been the best 3 weeks of my life.

Going on a Team to Tanzania with Go MAD is a fantastic opportunity that I would recommend to anyone. It’s an opportunity to challenge your own perceptions and attitudes. It’s an opportunity to develop new skills in leadership, team work, finance and practical building projects. It’s a place where you will make friends for the rest of your life.  If you come to Musoma, Tanzania with Go MAD you won’t want to leave.
