Kilacha Production- and Trainingcentre
The "Kilacha Production- and Trainingcentre" is an institution at the end of the Kilimanjaro foothills. The centre is under the direction of the diocese of Moshi and is founded to improve the future chances and the education level of young people in this region. They offer a lot of jobs in the area of agriculture, e.g. milk production and chicken breeding. At the Kilacha centre is also a college with current three different educations. Young tanzanian people will be educated there by about 30 teacher in "Hotel management and Human Nutrition"," Agriculture and Livestock training" and "Tour guide and tourism". Since 2010 there's also a small infirmary where students or workers can be examined or be treated by non-medical personal. In the case of major health diseases there is a hospital in Himo.
My mission as Volunteer
You can't predict my tasks to 100 % before the voluntary service, because I must look, how the project partners in himo will assess me and where I will be employed best. On the basis of my skills and interests, I can also determine, change or set my task priorities a little myself. So it's also possible, that there arise completely new fields of activity.
Basically, the support is provided in the following areas:
After finishing my academic high school diploma in 2010, I have had the great desire to go a year abroad where I wanted to participate in a project. In this way I wanted to see the life of another point view and become acquainted with other cultures, traditions and people. But I didn't feel mature, experienced or suitable enough for such a challenge. And other possibilities to go into another country, I couldn't finance. That was the reason, why I give up my plans in those days.
Now, 3 years later, I feel be more mature. In recent years I could gain insight and experience in a lot of profession. Now I have new knowledge, skills and competences especially in the medical, pharmaceutical sector. Later I want to study human medicine, but current I must wait futher 4 years to get the permission to enrollment, because my high school graduation certificate doesn't consist above 85% top marks. That's why I decided in October 2012 to participate for one year in a development volunteer service.
