Work

Participants will be doing various manual works to prepare the area (youth-holiday-camp for (or after) the summer leisure activities of the municipality. It means for example clearing the place, gardening, painting, building up/taking down tents. Time of work will be 4-5 hours on four days per week, excluding Saturday and Sunday.

Accomodation and food

Participants will live in a house with several-bed-rooms, kitchen, bathroom, shower. Cooking, cleaning, shopping etc. will be done by the group itself. Like in each workcamp, accommodation, food and travel-costs for excursions are free as well as materials/copies needed for the lectures.

Location and leisure

Marburg is an historical and picturesque old university town, 100 km north of Frankfurt/Main. It has 82.000 inhabitants, including 25.000 students. The camp is located on a wooded hill named Stadtwald , in a youth-holiday-camp 5 km far from the city centre. A good bus-connection allows to go to downtown.

Project hosted by

Host organization is the municipality of Marburg. They have already been organizing international volunteer camps for many years. It is a workcamp including German language training. The lectures will be two hours every day (excluding Saturday and Sunday when the group will go on excursions). The main topic during the lectures will be intercultural diversities. So, the basis of the lectures will be communication first and grammar second. The teachers will be native speakers, partly trained teachers, partly students. The language-course will not have the same standard as a professional language-school, but past experiences with this concept have given very good results. In total it will be 18 hours for lectures.

Requirements

As the language course is not for absolute beginners, participants must be able already to communicate in German, at least on a level which ensures simple communication (A2). Participants also must be willing to communicate with each other during the camp in German and not in English or in their own mother tongue for the whole time, not only during the lectures. This is one important part of the concept. Because of the language-course there is an extra-fee of 160,00 EUR to be paid upon arrival. A certificate for participating in the language-course will be given at the end of the camp.

Location and leisure

The word "Marangu" means a place with too many water streams. It is one of the most popular places in Tanzania. Located at the foot of Africa's tallest mountain, the quaint village of Marangu offers fascinating insight into both modern Tanzanian life and into the lives of the Chagga people who once withstood vicious Maasai raids through the ingenious use of tunnels. Many Marangu residents are farmers growing bananas, vegetables and coffee. However, the biggest source of income is tourism. The Marangu route is the most popular hiking route in Africa. The fact and reality of Marangu makes this place to be accessible with all social, economic and security facilities. You will not regret to be in Marangu, Kilimanjaro. Saturdays, Fridays and Public holidays are considered free time for volunteers to explore what the regions can offer them in term of cultural and natural attractions. Being in Northern Tanzania known as the capital of cultural, natural and tourist attraction you will have a good number of options:-  Cultural & Eco tourism around Chagga communities in Kilimanjaro, Masai in Arusha and the neighboring regions.  Hiking- there is a possibility of Hiking in Kilimanjaro mountain nature forest  Wild-life safari - Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Manyara and Tarangire National parks  Mountain Climbing- (Mount Kilimanjaro, Meru and others.)  Water side relaxation: Lake Chala, water falls etc.

Nature and Culture are two different terms but interconnected since one affect another. Conservation of the both has been popular topic over the decades now. This is due to the fact that, human activities are increasing every other day hence interfering the nature and cultures. This project is focusing on complex question; whether we can conserve nature and culture hence design sustainable communities for our future. Marangu is a community gifted with natural attractions like forest, water sources and water falls, landscapes, green vegetation throughout the year etc. However the nature has been significantly affected by human activities. Most families still maintain traditional style of cooking their meals on the ground in the house over an open flame. As a traditional house usually has only one room, the whole house is filled with the smoke before and after meals. The smoke is thick and stays in the house as only a little hole in the roof allows for ventilation. As a result, acute respiratory and eye diseases are a significant problem for mostly women and children. Additionally, this form of cooking requires large amount of firewood, which puts pressure on the Mount Kilimanjaro forest and thus a major contributor of forest destruction leading to climate change.

Meeting point

On the 10th November, at 14:00 hrs. Local time; volunteers will be picked up on one of the listed meeting points outlined below. Inform us well in advance if you cannot make it.  Kilimanjaro International Airport  Moshi main bus Terminal, Kilimanjaro  Moshi Lutheran Cathedral opposite Moshi Main bus station  Any accommodation facility within Moshi town centre.

In our really life we have experienced the fact that; a bigger percentage amount of a child’s time is spent sitting in a School environment. For instance in this locality; Children are expected to be at School from 07:30am to around 4:00pm. School environment is where children learn various skills deemed necessary and proper for them to achieve success for their future. It is where the student develops what they want their future to look like, as well as knowledge of the skills needed to reach that goal. These facts, explains how important the school environment is for a child growth.

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), otherwise known as the Global Goals, are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. These 17 Goals build on the successes of the Millennium Development Goals, while including new areas such as climate change, economic inequality, innovation, sustainable consumption, peace and justice, among other priorities. The goals are interconnected – often the key to success on one will involve tackling issues more commonly associated with another. The SDGs work in the spirit of partnership and pragmatism to make the right choices now to improve life, in a sustainable way, for future generations. The goals provide clear guidelines and targets for all countries to adopt in accordance with their own priorities and the environmental challenges of the world at large. Realization of these goals by 2030 will depend much on various factors on which Grassroots ownership is one of them. This International work camp is therefore aiming to make contribution through nature conservation activities. It is also a platform for volunteers and other interested members to become stimulated to contribute their own ideas and energies, thus contributing to live debates on sustainable issues.

Most Schools in Tanzania has long vacation in the month of June and December where students stays home. During this time, kids are expected to join family members for extracurricular activities, educational tours and other studies outside class rooms. However the experience has indicated that, most students does not have any structured activities that are fully involving them for personal and academic development. As a result, bad influence in the society during holiday time has affected the kids significantly since they join different peer groups and with limited supervision of their parents or guardian. This project is therefore aiming to fill the gap through effective utilizing vocation time to allow student/kids to join structured activities that we will contribute to their growth as well allow parents to consternate in productive economic activities.
