Kelly, a Master of Social Work Intern from Washington University in St. Louis, worked with us from January to May, 2014, on the HIV/AIDS Education Project, Hospital Food Project, and school personnel development.

"REACH Shirati is a wonderful, small but mighty organization to volunteer with.  Even though I never met Laura in person, she is a very knowledgeable and insightful resource both before, during, and after my volunteer semester with REACH Shirati. 

"The Tanzanian host, Fred, (REACH Shirati Porgram Manager and Manager at Tina's Pre and Primary School), is a very gracious host who always makes sure the guests are comfortable, healthy, and safe while also being a great resource to bounce ideas off of when trying to implement new programs or projects. 

"The community of Shirati was very welcoming and open to new ideas.  Overall, I had a great experience with this organization. If you have a chance to volunteer with REACH Shirati, do everything you can to go because you won't regret it one bit!"
