FOOD a) 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. b) Vegetarians are accommodated and veg meals will be available. However volunteers with more specific dietary requirements may need to supplement the included meals at their own expense. c) Participants with food allergies (e.g., nuts) must inform us about the existence and severity of the allergy. d) Three meals per day are provided to the Volunteers at the accommodation. e) Meals on transit between airports and to/from Project, during tourism or outside designated project area are volunteer’s responsibility. f) No reimbursements will be made for volunteers who miss their included meals. g) We will have permanent support staff to help in the kitchen. However Volunteers are expected to give hand in meals preparations, dish washing, kitchen and dining room cleaning. h) Clean water will be provided. We will not pay for bottled water if is going to be your preference. Kindly bring with your water bottle.
a) When is your free time? • Break hours during working days • Saturdays, Sundays and Public holidays • You may wish to arrive earlier before the project or stay longer after to enjoy the most of what this country offer. b) Options Pemba Island famous known as “spice Island” is gifted with various natural attractions. Before coming to Tanzania, you will have an opportunity to learn more about this beautiful Island; however there are four important sites or activities you may not want to miss at all:- Ngezi Forest, and Vumawimbi beach Misali Island and Cloves farms. Important advise • Be aware of people trying to invite you for safari and tours, they might not help that much as most of them are not licensed or registered for such kind of business • It is always cheaper and even fun to do these activities with other volunteers as a team. You might want to wait until the orientation day to plan together • If needed we can provide some recommendations for companies which has been providing services to our volunteers for years with affordable rates while quality, safety and security prioritized.

Experts are informing us that, the outcome of disappearing of mangrove will result to Fisheries declines, Threats to migratory bird species, Degradation of Clean water supplies, Salinization of coastal soils, Erosion and land subsidence.
