Food: Trying a variety of foods from other cultures is part of UVIKIUTA’s philosophy for an authentic experience in Tanzania, and may be both fun and challenging. Food on our projects generally reflects the local cuisine. Some foods that are part of a regular diet at your home country may not be available during the project. Vegetarians are accommodated and veg meals will be available. The house will have a permanent kitchen staff, however- volunteers are expected to provide hand in meals shopping, preparation and dish washing. Vegetarian meals will be available.
Location: Uzi is a small island in the south of Zanzibar’s main island Unguja. Little has changed in Uzi during the last centuries. Most of the island's 5000 people are fishermen and farmers. The island is located in the Menai Bay Conservation Area which forms an important ecosystem of mangrove forests, sea grass beds, islands with fresh water forest, coral reefs and a large diversity of plants, land and water animals, including dolphins, African Sea Eagles, and protected marine turtles. Leisure activities This is a perfect location to take an advantage of what the nature offers for our free time. Possibilities are: • Exploring Zanzibar historical, natural and cultural sites. These include museums, local markets, stone town, etc. • Enjoy wildlife and marine life. Jozani forest National Park, Blue safaris swimming, tour to small islands, variety of water sports, spice tour among many other options. • If you are arriving earlier or staying longer there are more safari options to the World’s great National Parks, Cultural and Eco-tourism that Tanzania offers.
Climate change is now affecting every country on every continent. It is disrupting national economies and affecting lives, costing people, communities and countries dearly today and even more tomorrow. People are experiencing the significant impacts of climate change, which include changing weather patterns, rising sea level, and more extreme weather events. The greenhouse gas emissions from human activities are driving climate change and continue to rise. It is has been reported that, they are now at their highest levels in history. Despite the threatening reality, no much education has been shared at the local level and as a result more actions contributing to the problems like Mangrove forest cutting, Illegal fishing waste management among many others are still visible. This project is there for aiming to join the local community’s actions against climate change.
This project is suitable for a person who is open minded, flexible, ready to learn and adopt to other cultures, interested in physical/outdoor activities, Nature, environment, and with ability to work under less supervision and minimum resources.
