I came across One Heart Source when looking for an opportunity to undertake meaningful teaching work that would have a real and lasting impact. The organisation's model of homestays, coupled with school and community engagement was particuarly appealing in this regard. I was also given the opportunity to engage in significant pre-field training before arriving in country which was especially useful as this was my first time volunteering. Whist on my programme I spent a month living and teaching in the Arusha area of Tanzania and was afforded more of a cultural insight that I had ever hoped possible. Not only was I teaching in a local school, but also leading community health education efforts and tutoring the children in my homestay. Overall an incredible experience.
