These will include:- • Mangrove trees planting along the coastal lines • Environmental education and awareness through sports, arts, workshops etc. • Educational tours to various organizations working on environmental conservation and sustainability • You will have a great opportunity for educational and cultural exchange activities with the volunteers in the team, Local community members etc. This will include Cultural nights, educational tours/visit, workshops, debates, cultural shows/Exhibitions, Community engagement activities, Kiswahili language class and many other options from you and other volunteers’ menu.
Accommodation:Volunteers will be hosted in communal house in the community. Basic accommodation facilities will be provided. Expect to share rooms with or other volunteers from the same or other projects. (No mix of different sex in the rooms). Volunteers’ relatives and friends can visit or staying over upon special approval. Bring with you; Mosquito net, Bed sheets (at least 2 pieces) and pillow if you prefer one, Towels, Rubber mattress and Mosquito repellent. 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 program. Vegetarians will be accommodated. However volunteers with more specific dietary requirements may need to supplement the included meals at their own expense. Participants with food allergies (e.g., nuts) must inform the organisation about the existence and severity of the allergy. Three meals per day are provided to the Volunteers at the accommodation. Meals in transit between airports and to/from Project, during tourism or outside designated project area are volunteer’s responsibility. No reimbursements will be made for volunteers who miss their included meals.
About the 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. The Island is located about 34km south of Zanzibar Stone town. Leisure activities • 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. • Note: 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 participants 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 Previous participants over the years with affordable rates while quality, safety and security prioritized.
Description of the Project: Mangrove trees that are expected to stretch along Coastal lines are important as animal habitats and natural seawalls. However despite this reality Mangrove forest are among the most threatened habitats in various countries. These trees may be disappearing quickly than other inland forests than expected. 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. Natural seawalls project is organized to respond to the current trend of destruction of mangrove forest.
