About Cheka Sana
This unique trip will consist of 7 nights in Mwanza where you will join Cheka Sana’s team on the streets, visit their day centre and accommodation, and experience their long-term family reintegration work.

Cheka Sana will explain their model of work with young people, you’ll get to know their staff team, and gain an understanding of the realities and challenges children face on the streets. We will also take a day-trip to experience some of the incredible national parks which sit right on Mwanza’s doorstep.

Business matters: two young women who set up their own sewing business with help from a grant from Cheka Sana. 

During your stay you will:

  • join Cheka Sana’s outreach teams on home visits in local communities as part of their family reintegration work
  • visit their day-centre and accommodation
  • join Cheka Sanas association groups with young women
  • get involved in their self defence training sessions (females only)
  • join in with their sports and arts activities.

Our aim for this trip is to support groups of young women, and girls in particular, whose lives on the streets are extremely challenging. Cheka Sana’s vital work helps them unlock their potential, and overcome the barriers they face which can seem challenging and immovable.

The trip will include:

  • 7 nights full board accommodation in a comfortable tourist hotel in Mwanza
, a short walk from Cheka Sana’s centre
  • a 1-day National Park visit with a local guide

  • all local transportation once you arrive in Mwanza

This trip is full board and includes all meals. Prices are based on two people sharing. Single rooms are available upon payment of a £120 supplementary fee (please see below).

We are keen to encourage as many people as possible to join us for this trip. The trip is all-age and open to families, but please do contact us if your children are younger than 14 to discuss the trip beforehand.

Your flights

The trip price does not include flights to Mwanza, visitor entry visas to Tanzania, or travel insurance.

Participants will need to book their own flights for this trip because of the likelihood of many people adding on extra time for their own travel. You will need to arrive in Mwanza by Sunday 26th July.

Please allow plenty of time for your journey; often the internal flights from Dar Es Salaam to Mwanza can be rescheduled or delayed at short notice. Our last day of activities will be Saturday 1st August, so from Sunday 2nd August you will be free to fly home or on to your next holiday destination. 

Extend your trip

In terms of weather and wildlife, July and August are some of the best months of the year for a safari in the Serengeti National Park. It is also the perfect time of year to visit the island of Zanzibar which is only a few hours away, so it’s a great opportunity to add time on to your trip and make the most of beautiful Tanzania.


Single rooms are available upon payment of a £120 supplementary fee. Please click here to pay for your single room. To book your place and pay your deposit for our first supporter trip to Tanzania, simply click here or on the ‘Book now’ button near the top of the page.
