I spent 7 weeks volunteering for KIWAKKUKI in the summer of 2008 (end of June-August). My colleague Cate Harding and I were collaborating with KIWAKKUKI to conduct research on the connections between spirituality, traditional beliefs, religion and health behaviors. We conducted 23 qualitative interviews with KIWAKKUKI employees, KCMC Chaplains, Muslim leaders and a Pentecostal priest.

When we weren't conducting interviews, we were assisting KIWAKKUKI with various tasks- ranging from proofreading proposals, creating spreadsheets (budget, annual reports), tutoring employees in English, observing home based care visits etc. It was an amazing experience working with such enthusiastic and selfless individuals. KIWAKKUKI employees dedicate their lives to offering care to individuals suffering from HIV/AIDS and in doing so grant them the support they need to fight the disease. I truly value KIWAKKUKI's mission and would recommend to anyone interested in public health, policy, social work, medicine or other fields to volunteer for the organization!! It's a life changing opportunity.

 

I volunteered at Kiwakkuki for 8 weeks during the winter of 2007. I was between a job and going to graduate school, and I wanted to use my time off to volunteer in a meaningful way. I organized and lead English conversation and computer skills classes for the staff, worked on the website, and helped with small tasks around the office. The staff at Kiwakkuki are wonderful. They became my family while I was in Moshi, made me feel extraordinarily welcome, and trusted me to help in whatever way I could.

I have stayed in touch with many of them and continue to think of them as dear friends. They are dedicated beyond words to their mission and to the Tanzanians who show up at their office to get tested for HIV, to obtain funds to go to school, or just to find some moral support. From the daily morning prayer and song, to celebrating the small victories with song and dance, to persevering in the face of enormous obstacles, Kiwakkuki is an inspiring organization and a wonderful place to volunteer.
