The " Village of Hope " is a large and well-equipped Village created by Italian nuns to accommodate , care for and raise orphaned children suffering from serious diseases or malnutrition.

In the main building of the village there are some comfortable, bright and spacious single and double rooms all with private bathroom and shower intended for volunteers who take turns periodically. George, my husband, stayed there for 25 days last November.

These rooms are made ??available to travelers when not in use .

The Village has its own independent water and power (thanks to a diesel generator and some brand new panels for photovoltaic energy ) . In addition, self-produced milk ( in their stables ), bread (thanks to a very modern oven) fruit and vegetables throughout hygienically controlled .

By choosing to stay here, at an extremely affordable price , the guest in addition to helping economically the village for the purchase of the assets of the daily needs for small children , will have a clean private room with bathroom spotless and equipped with all comforts: shower hot and cold water , mosquito nets at the windows and over the beds, towels and bed linen.

Can enjoy meals of Italian cuisine and hearty breakfasts. In addition, you can take advantage of the nice and clean swimming pool of the nearby Hotel San Gaspar for only 6000 tsh (about 3 euro)

The village is situated about 6 km from Dodoma, capital of Tanzania , on Highway to Morogoro and Dar es Salaam . The mini bus here called " Dala-Dala ," run regularly and connecting within minutes to the city center at a price of 400 tsh (about 0,20 €) .

From here you can visit unique places like the nearby Salt Lake (one of the largest depressions of the African continent ) or the archaeological sites of extraordinary beauty . Parks such as Mikumi are a few hours away. Sister Rosaria and Father Vincent who manage this mission will be happy to give you all the details about .

But above all you will have the chance to enjoy the company,learn and help all the wonderful children of the Village, that thanks to the immense love of Sister Rosaria , Father Vincent and all the sisters and volunteers who take turns, can hope for a decent future.

Sister Rosaria and Father Vincent, missionaries for over 30 years in Tanzania, as well as fluent in Italian, English, French and Swahili, the official language of the country.
