What do we offer?

There is a two-week program that includes hours of lectures-workshops a week and lectures with social entrepreneurs, from different fields of their expertise. Also, you will be able to present your own ideas and projects and to work in Assalam meanwhile.

Every week on Friday, you will have a chance to meet with local social entrepreneurs from different fields, learning further about how the locals are making a change in their community. Each of the entrepreneurs from different fields, learning further about how the locales are making a change in their community. Each of the entrepreneurs is real changemakers with years of experience in their field of work, all making contributions from different corners of life.

Volunteering is one of our keystones, and that is why we wanted to integrate a two-hour volunteering program each weekday, for you to learn about yourself and also to get involved with the local community more.

You can teach English to children by playing games with them, give them workshops on something you are skilled in or sit with mothers who sew bags and African rag dolls to have a chat or to learn sewing with them.

Every weekend, there will be an opportunity to explore around Zanzibar, to have new experiences around the island or to interact with the local culture intensively. Moreover, there is a local transportation system that is affordable and safe to wander around and to further explore the island with.

Aside from all these, during your free time, the ocean is waiting for you to enjoy it to the fullest by the view, to swim or to cycle onshore.
