Volunteering Organisation in Tanzania: Hostel Hoff

Welcome to Hostel Hoff - an African volunteering agency

In 2006 Hostel Hoff was a small enterprise and was started with the aim of helping volunteers /Interns side step international profit orientated “organizations".  It has been our belief that people should not have to pay to volunteer, therefore requiring volunteers to cover only their accommodation and meals.


For over 15 years we have worked hard to establish great partnerships with local organisations here in Moshi.  We are now able to offer volunteering & internship placements in orphanages, nursery schools, primary schools, vocational training placements, women's groups, centres for children with disabilities and environmental conservation projects.

 In truth, we never hoped to achieve as much as we have. Our view seems to be shared with many of you out there and this has allowed us to give real, substantial and continuous help to a number of projects that we support.

"At Hostel Hoff, it's like being in one big happy family and the staff work very hard to make you feel at home.  Located in Moshi, the foothills of Mt. Kilimanjaro, it's a great location and you are never short of things to do. I had some of the best months of my life here, and volunteering through their organisation was on of the best things I ever decided to do.  I cant wait to return".
