How do you assess the services of New Hope?

I found the services of New Hope very satisfactory. They provided me with all the necessary information and help that I needed in order to prepare me to the fullest for my experience out in the field. I applied for my program with New Hope in the last minute and yet they still managed to find me a project and accommodation in time with no rush. Everything just seemed in order with New Hope.

Please evaluate the support, meal and accommodation we received during the program

Meals and accommodation during the program was like the services also satisfactory. The standard was good and the support (coordinator: Deogratius Peter (Arusha, Moshi)) was great. There was always help to find if needed! I have no complaints at all

Please review/evaluate your overall experience with New Hope

My overall experience with New Hope was great! I was pleased with the information provided prior to my experience and the help I received during the program. I had a wonderful experience with the help from New Hope!

Tanzania - Orphanage project

I was a bit dissorganised in arranging the time i would arrive in tanzania to get picked up however once my bus got in i called Deo, the country coordinator and he was there within 20 minutes to collect me. Once arriving at the orphanage he left me with the lovely Collins and Pamela who run the place. As I was there over the christmas holidays the kids were home all day and i spent most of my time playing with them and helping with chores. The place was well run despite the lack of resources and Deo checked in with me to make sure I was comfortable. There were about 30 kids aged 2 - 20 who were an absolute pleasure to spend time with. Originally i was to stay four weeks but ended up there for only three as i didn't quite comprehend the exhaustion of living at the orphanage full time. Overall i had a great time largely due to the incredible children.

A big thank you to new hope, especially Srijana who always got back to me with the many emails i sent while organizing my trip.

Kind regards,
Claire Wilson
