Makuyuni Guest House
In Tanzania, Makuyuni has a dispensary and the nearby hospital is in Mto Wa Mbu, a 20 minute drive from Makuyuni. There are also many hospitals in Arusha, an hour’s drive away. A registered nurse will be on hand to manage any issues and assist with any ailments. We will also register with AMREF, an emergency evacuation service.
A security guard will also be at the guest house 24/7 to ensure volunteers' safety. Makuyuni is a pleasant quiet town and crime is low apart from the occasional pick pocket.
Our Partners in Tanzania
Claire Mathews, an Irish nurse and Lalahe Mollel, a local Maasai man, started the non-profit Volunteer Maasai several years ago. Claire was motivated by the lack of educational opportunities faced by young Maasai children. Their goals are to introduce primary education to the region of Lomiyon, promote gender equality and reduce poverty by supporting sustainable, income generating projects. At the moment, there are 60 children in one small classroom. We will be helping to build a much-needed classroom and helping to teach English, sports and arts and crafts. Learning English is a must when going to primary and secondary school and it is one important step to help relieve poverty.
