A WORLD HOME FOR YOUTH (WHY) onlus is an international volunteering organization established in 2004 in Trento, Italy. We took part to cooperation interventions in Eritrea and South India, then in 2006 we settled in Zanzibar, Tanzania, and at the present we are still operating on the island. We established relationships with the communities living in many villages near Jambiani. Together we decided to realize educational projects in the outskirts and rural areas of the island: kindergartens and primary schools giving basic education to more than 1,000 children. We devoted ourselves to recover some medical facilities, to build a multi-functional school hub and we started remote support programs via which it is possible to help one of our pupils or even entire classes. Every year we organize volunteering camps, where there's the chance to do an amazing experience, to meet new people, new cultures and to operate as a team member of our projects. Realizing long lasting projects: from this idea, in 2008, started our sustainable tourism project, another way to know from close the life of this small, magic, African Land.
