Community Development

Zanzibar

24 Jul - 6 Aug

We are excited to announce a very special program - our upcoming Community Development-themed project starting this July 2022 in Zanzibar. As a volunteer, your day to day activities may vary but the main goal is to support and stimulate learning for children through playful and social interactions.

If you want to experience an unforgettable explorative journey in East Africa while teaching basic English, Math and other subjects to children in Zanzibari orphanages, then this is the trip for you!

Some of the activities you can expect to be doing with the children are arts and crafts, basic gardening and nursery patch work, teaching, dancing exercises, playing indoor and outdoor games and more. All materials will be provided by NomuHub local coordinators and team.

Program Details

Our programs are open to anyone with a passion to travel with a purpose. It is not mandatory for you to have any specific background in teaching or childcare development to join this program, but we may conduct a brief interview to help us understand the skills of our group so we can plan the scope of the project well. We usually have a list of pre-set activities planned but you are encouraged to bring your own ideas to interact and engage fruitfully with the children.

The application process is simple. Before you start, make sure to go through our informative Volunteer Manual and our Terms. Once you're ready, simply click "Book Now" and pay a deposit to reserve your seat. Our team will be in touch with you from that point on for further instructions and guidance with your application.

Your first day will start off with pick-ups from the airport by our local representatives. Once everyone is gathered, you will be briefed through an Orientation followed by a classic Stown Town tour and a team Welcome dinner to break the ice with everyone.

The next 5 days of your week will have a mix of volunteering and touristic activities. We typically start early in the mornings with an energizing breakfast, conduct volunteering activities till the afternoon, then embark on an exploration tour till the evenings. For more details on the type of volunteering and touristic activities, check our Volunteer Manual. Your Saturday will be your "day off" and you can spend it however you like as you get ready to bid a bittersweet farewell to this beautiful island.

Although this program is short-term, it's sure to leave you with a boundless sense of wanting to do more.

Accommodations

All the accommodations are in the heart of Stone Town, and are located within close proximity from each other. The furthest two points (Stone Town House and Park Hyatt hotel) are within 5 minutes walk from each other.

Our female participants usually stay in our very own NomuHub Hostel while male participants in a different one. The common area in our NomuHub Hostel can be used by all participants.

We also offer 4 star and 5 star hotel upgrades with our accommodation partners, either in single room or twin-sharing basis. You may book these as add-ons in your booking process, but please note that confirmation of your reservation is subject to availability. During peak seasons in Zanzibar, it can be very difficult to secure a reservation so the earlier you book, the better.

Meals

There are many heterogeneous influences that are reflected in Zanzibar’s cuisine due to the multicultural nature that became a part of Zanzibar. The mixture of culinary traditions include Bantu, Arab, Portuguese, Indian, British and even Chinese cuisines.

STUDENT5 :  5% off for students (Student ID must be provided as proof, otherwise discount is not applicable)

GROUP5 :  5% for each member of a group of 3 or more (if less than 3, discount is not applicable)

Please note:

  • Kindly ensure to follow our policies regarding our discount codes
  • More than one discount cannot be used in the same transaction
  • Discounts are not applicable to add-ons, such as 5-Star & 4-Star hotel upgrade or additional touristic activities
  • Credit card service charge applies to online transactions

It's important that you visit a health practitioner and inform them about your travel plans for health-related recommendations. We advice the Yellow Fever vaccination to be done at least one week before your travel date. We also recommend volunteers to take anti-mosquito measures (insect repellent, wear long-sleeved tops & bottoms).

In regards to COVID-19, make sure to thoroughly read page 19 of our Volunteer Manual. For more information on our COVID-19 updates, kindly click here. We strongly recommend all our travelers to consider getting travel insurance that includes COVID coverage.

Finally, please remember that booking flights is your responsibility. We recommend FlyDubai as they offer conveniently direct flight journeys at an affordable price. You can read more about exact dates you should book your flights, how to send them to us etc. in our Volunteer Manual.
