Volunteer testimonial boxes

Below are all the "Volunteer testimonial" snippets. On each page of the site, a random one of these is displayed on the right-hand sidebar.

To edit one, click the blue title below and then use the edit button on the next page.

To create a new entry you need to use the administrator backend. Create an article and set the category to "Testimonial". It will then appear in the list below.

To delete one, you also need to use the administrator backend. Locate the article in the backend and delete it (or just unpublish it if you think that you may want to use it again later)


  • Short and sweet! 25 - 50 words is good. If necessary, cut down the testimonial to the required length.
  • Fix spelling errors in the text, but don't otherwise change the text style. It looks suspicious if all the testimonials have a similar style of speech!
  • The last line of the testimonial should be in bold and say Firstname Lastname, Country

Mikko Salo

I worked as an intern for Art in Tanzania for 5 months. I had amazing time working with the other interns. I also did some volunteering on my free time which was fun and I think you learn more about the local culture that way. I would like to thank all the staff in Art in Tanzania for making my internship so fun!

Just want to encourage anyone considering going to Tanzania to DO IT! I had so much fun there. The kids are darling and I especially loved my adult English class. Everyone was so kind helpful which went long ways towards making this an amazing experience. You are doing amazing work here and I'm so glad I could be part of it.

All the amazing people I met along the way - I've definitely made some friends for life. One weekend we took a boat to Coral Island, which was amazing - white sands and gorgeous water. It felt as though we were the only group on the island. We also went to Zanzibar one weekend. The spice tour was really good - I'd recommend it to anyone taking a trip to Zanzibar.

Mt Kilimanjaro climb testimonialDuring February 2014 I did 2 weeklong trips to Tanzania. During these 2 weeks, I climbed up to Uhuru Peak on Mt Kilimanjaro and had a safari in Serengeti and N'gorongoro. The staff and guides from Art in Tanzania were extremely helpful during the 10 days long climbing & safari trip.

I was quite impressed with the staff's knowledge of English and their skills to socialize with the people from Europe and other parts of the world. Some of our climbing group felt tired and was not sure if they were able to continue the climbing at some points. But due to the experience and knowledge of our guides, these climbers were helped to make a proper decision whether to continue or to stop due to the mountain sickness.

To sum up, I would definitely recommend Art in Tanzania if you are visiting Tanzania and plans to climb up Uhuru Peak or getting on safari into Serengeti and N'gorongoro.

Thanks to the experienced guidance I was feeling safe during the whole trip and would definitely choose them again if I later in my life plan to visit Mt Kilimanjaro or to go to a safari again.

Sincerely, Mohn Tom Eric, CEO of Ab Moonway Oy, Turku, Finland.

Marketing internshipWe are studying tourism at the University of Applied Sciences in Finland and it was time for us to have our internship. We knew that we wanted to do something out of the regular and we love traveling, so when we found the organization on our school's list of possible internship places, we couldn't get it out of our minds. We left rainy Finland behind us heading for a month's adventure, and it really has been one. It took a while to get used to their "pole pole" ((slow) working tempo. We got pretty free hands, but that also meant that we had to take things in our own hands. We wanted to get out as much as possible of our internship and also see different places. After talking to some workers, we made up a plan, which everyone was happy with. Our main task was to write stories on Art in Tanzania blog. A part of our internship is also to be at the stand of the Nordic Travel Fair in January in Finland. Today is our last day, and we are amazed how much we have experienced in just a month. We are sad about leaving all the nice people behind and a bit afraid that the real culture shock wit hit us when we come home since we didn't have on when we arrived.
