  • Hosting fundraising events for specific projects at Kili Centre.
  • Website maintenance and updating.

We would also welcome any other skills that you have to offer, please contact us if you think you can help out.

    I am very interested in volunteering for the Kili Centre starting in September 2009. About a year ago I spent 6 weeks volunteering in Moshi at a school and also the juvenile jail. I absolutely fell in love with the Tanzanian people and am ready to be back in the country to do more volunteer work.

    This past weekend I graduated from Miami University of Ohio, USA getting my Bachelor’s Degree in Family Studies and Social Work with a concentration in Children, Youth and Families. With my degree and also my past experience in Moshi, I feel I am qualified to work with the Kili Centre to help the vulnerable children and youth of Tanzania.

    My passion to help others is a quality I think is very important in order to work with the Kili Centre. I also love to learn whether it be about other people, the country, or processes that Mkombozi follows. This is essential when taking on a new job or task in order to work to your highest potential possible. I am a hard worker that has the ability to adapt to my environment in order to tackle challenges that I come across. If given the opportunity, I look forward to gaining lasting and meaningful relationships with the children, staff, and the community.

    I have committed my life to helping others and would love to have the opportunity to volunteer at the Kili Centre. If there is any other information I could provide you with, please let me know and I will be glad to get that for you. I look forward to hearing from you!

    Best wishes,
    Amy Kell
