Ray of Hope Africa is an online non-profit global community network. It connects charitable organizations with volunteers willing to devote their time in order to change lives and transform landscapes.
Appropriately, launching on International Volunteer Day, Ray Of Hope Africa puts people from all walks of life 3 clicks away from finding an inspiring cause to donate their time -- at no or minimal costs.
Ray Of Hope Africa eliminates the middle-man and creates a transparent platform to bring together individuals seeking to volunteer with communities in need.
Ray Of Hope Africa is under Pawa Rafiki Tours & Safaris LTD, the company started to help community from it’s profit and it’s one of goal to help Africa.



Activities Around Moshi

Moshi has many things to do. Some great affordable restaurants and night clubs. It also is adjacent to
Rau National Forest and Mt Kilimanjaro, Chagga Tribe village visits, coffee and banana plantations,
Arusha National Park and Tarangire National Park are easy day trips. Weekend trips can also include
Maasai Village visits, Ngorongoro and Lake Manyara National Park safaris. Naturally, the Serengeti is a
popular trip, but it's sheer size and distance from Moshi makes it a better trip over 4 or more days total.
Starring at Mt Kilimanjaro each day makes it hard to resist adding an extra week onto your trip for a
shot at climbing to the summit. Being the hub for Kilimanjaro climbs, there is great regional bus service
going through Moshi to Dar es Salaam, Zanzibar (via ferry in Dar es Salaam) and Arusha. To take a
better look at all that is possible, click on the link to see our partner, Pawa Rafiki Tours & Safaris LTD.

 Housing and 2 meals a day (breakfast & dinner) in a shared room will cost $30 night for stays under
2 weeks. Stays from 2 - 4 weeks have a cost of $25/ night. Stays of 1 month or longer are $22/ night.
One night a week, we give our cook the evening off and meals will be at a local restaurant. The
restaurant cost is not included in the rate. This also helps integrate the volunteers with the local
community. Laundry can be done yourself or by our house staff at a nominal cost.
