Volunteering in Munich for Jambo Bukoba: from Italy to Germany to Tanzania

ehrenamtlich bei jambobukoba
We welcome Beatrice Valentinis Guidi to Jambo Bukoba. Beatrice, originally from Italy, is a brand-new volunteer who will support us with many different projects in the coming months. We are delighted to have her help.

Beatrice, tell us a little bit about yourself and your life in Munich

I was born and raised in Rome and I moved to Munich three years ago. I love the lively cultural life and elegance of the city.
When I’m not in the Jambo Bukoba office, surrounded by wonderful photos of smiling Tanzanian children, I’m in the lounge of Global Blue Germany, greeting travellers from around the world every day. The company provides financial services for non-European tourism. I have managed the Munich-city office for the past two years.
My passions are art and culture. I regularly attend the Bavarian State Opera (currently streaming digitally) and I’m interested in exhibitions at the city’s museums. My favourite pastime, however, is reading contemporary books and literary classics. Otherwise, I like to spend my free time with friends or in the kitchen.

Why did you decide to volunteer at Jambo Bukoba?

I find volunteering a really enriching experience. In Rome, I worked in a centre for asylum seekers and refugees and for some time I had wanted to volunteer here in Munich as well.
In December, I attended the Jambo Bukoba monthly meeting, which also celebrated Jambo Bukoba’s twelfth birthday. I was immediately gripped by the „spirit“ of everyone involved. The teams in Tanzania and in Germany shared their experiences in different ways and with great enthusiasm and joy.
What impresses me most about Jambo Bukoba is the very original combination of sports, on the one hand, and health, education and gender equality on the other. For me, sport is a way to grow as a person and a way for people to come together, regardless of cultural differences.
I also like and find it very important that local Tanzanian communities work hand-in-hand with Jambo Bukoba and are very involved with the project work.

Do you play sport yourself?

The sport that has stayed with me since childhood is my favourite sport – swimming. In summer I love to dive into the ocean or into the beautiful lakes of Bavaria. Otherwise, I also like to go hiking in the mountains.

What will you do at Jambo Bukoba?

My responsibilities cover a variety of topics from public relations to working with the Jambo For Development team in Tanzania. I’ll be involved in helping them to do online fundraising for sanitary pads, and website duties. I will also help out with setting up new donation sources, and the organisation of the annual general meeting.

Have you ever been to Africa or to Tanzania?

I went to Morocco once. That was my first trip outside Europe. I was impressed by the friendliness and helpfulness of the people we met. I also loved the rich variety of landscapes you can see from seaside towns, like Essaouira, or lively Marrakech, or the silent and vast Atlas mountain range.
I would love to discover other sides of Africa one day – including Tanzania of course ?

What are you most looking forward to during your time at Jambo Bukoba?

This week has already been really interesting and I can’t wait for the next ones: to learn new things and enjoy the different elements that make this organization so special.
THANK YOU, BEATRICE
