Description

About Me

Hey, my name is Eliza and I am from Cyprus. I am a Youth Worker and a Tour Guide. I have been traveling since I can remember myself. I am a person that seeks opportunities to help where needed and contribute with my skills to the world around me. As a youth worker, I have been in the position to help young people mostly in Europe and contribute to projects with my skills and expertise in Sustainable Tourism, Analog Photography, Upcycling, Peace Building, Human rights, and Conflict resolution. I am a person that believes in and supports Life Long Learning, and this is one of the main reasons why I want to accept this challenge and be part of the project from Wheeling2Help. Help me contribute with my way and get inspired by the world around me.  

I spent the summer of 2020 working and volunteering with Wheeling2Help NGO in Greece. It was a life-changing experience as I got to understand what it means to be grateful for the world around me, and how kindness can have the greatest impact on people. The amazing and inspiring people I met during my journey with Wheeling2help made me take this great decision to be part of something bigger. 

With your contribution, you will help me take part in the MyQuest project in Tanzania, organized by Wheeling2Help NGO. A volunteering experience, with impact in the local community, respect in nature through education and empowerment of the locals

About The Project

Tanzania is a beautiful country with tropical vegetation, endless hectares of savannah, indigenous forests, and wonderful people, that we are happy to visit every year.

During the last 5 years, Wheeling2Help align with its volunteers  have been to Gongo Village with MyQuest Solidarity Trips., They have painted and equipped the local dispensary, they have built a chicken farm, toilets, and kitchen for Gongo Primary school, a women cooperative building for the Gongo Mamas, as well as an agricultural center for sustainable farming, which will also become soon the market place of the village!

This year in winter, Wheeling2Help is going back to Gongo village, to get involved in deep with all the projects that have started in the past years as well as new projects that arise. The main areas that they focus are:

  • Education – sports, cultural, environmental activities at Gongo Primary School.
  • Empowerment – activities at the women cooperative of Gongo Mamas, farming activities at the agricultural center of Kilimo+ , as well as chicken farming at Wakuza.
  • Conservation – activities such as tree planting, clean-ups and upcycling workshops.

  Wheeling2Help is not traveling to Tanzania just to work on the projects mentioned above, but also to meet the local people of Gongo Village, become part of their everyday life, celebrate together, learn from each other, and create a relationship which will give us back so much and create strong feelings that we will be carrying with us for a long time!

Few words about SANA and its vision…

The organisation SANA (Saving Africa’s Nature) which is based in Pwani region, in the ourskirts of Saadani National Park, is primarily focusing on the protection of the environment and wildlife using sustainable ways to protect flora and fauna. SANA’s work is targeting in the common participation and involvement of both the local communities and the authorities, from design to implementation. The villages where SANA is operating are Saadani, Matipwili, Gongo and Mkange due their close distance from Saadani National Park and Community Forest of Zaraninge. In these villages SANA has provided support and improved the education, health and the living standards of the people through alternative sources of income.
