You will need the required immunizations and malaria prophylactics in order to travel to Tanzania and we can help you with that. Further, you will need to calculate your air fare, insurance and travel costs to Arusha. Flights are often cheaper into Nairobi, Kenya or Dar Es Salam, Tanzania but if you can find your way to Kilimanjaro Airport or the city of Arusha, we can pick you up!
We will help you get your volunteer visa which costs in the range of $250.00 USD for 90 days. You will pay Tumaini Children’s Foundation $25.00 US per day (or the equivalent), which will cover the costs of modest, but comfortable accommodation (our volunteer house sleeps up to eight), three very good meals per day, plus a small contribution towards the ongoing support of our children.
Having said all of that I would budget in some extra money. I haven’t met a person yet who hasn’t found a need (always related to money in such a poor country) they haven’t desired to fill. Further, you will want to shop for carvings, batiks, art, etc., while here!
