Our project started with the clear idea that, if we were going to do this, it would have to create a positive impact among the local community. One of the founders of Gecko Adventure has been a volunteer for an orphanage at Kigamboni-Mwasonga (New Hope Family Group). As such, we have decided to use 5% of our profits to help this school and to make sure that some kids who have no access to education and basic needs, have the opportunity to have one.
We are based in Kigamboni, Mwasonga-Kisarawe-2 (close to Dar Es Salaam Zoo) about 20 km from Dar es Salaam city centre. If you are ready to see some of the most beautiful places in the world and, at the same time, do something meaningful to the local community, don’t hesitate to contact us! One of the things you can do to help us with our community project is to bring with you some items from your home countries like pencils or soccer balls etc. We are proud members of Pack for a Purpose, an initiative that allows travellers like you to make a lasting impact in the community at your travel destination. If you save just a few kilos of space in your suitcase and bring supplies for area schools or medical clinics in need, you’ll make a priceless impact in the lives of our local children and families. Please click here or the logo below to see what supplies are needed for our project/projects.
We’re also looking for people to stay with us and do some volunteer work in their spare time, helping the school or teaching students, etc. There is no time limit and you can stay for as long as you want or just for a day or two. We welcome any help, suggestions or ideas. You can teach, take care of kids and babies, play with them, help to improve the school conditions, create awareness in the local communities about problematic issues like Malaria or HIV or any other thing you had in mind If you’d like to volunteer, just contact us
