Alisha Butterworth’s experiences
Whilst working in Africa can be hard, tiring and confronting at times; I look at the strength, courage and kindness of the people of Tarime, and feel grateful to be apart of the team of volunteers which make a difference to this community year in and year out!
Confucius says that it is never too late to be kind…
“Most of us rush through life and miss many of it’s great rewards. Take a gentler road, where you have time to talk to people. Learn about their lives, and their loved ones. It will broaden your life. It will give you compassion. Accept their kindnesses. Be kind in return!”
This statement really encompasses my journey to Tarime.. How each of us should take some time out in life to just listen and help others! The people of Tarime are kind and open; each of their stories has touched my heart and changed my life in some way. So please, show compassion and kindness to the people of Tarime, because they give so much in return!
I cannot wait to return next year and once again work alongside the people of Tarime and the other Care For Africa Volunteers to really make a difference in Tanzania
