Intercultural Learning Experience

Shamiri is in working partnership with the NGO Waridi La Matumaini (WLM). It is a sustainable Volunteer organization focusing on intercultural exchange and global learning.  Shamiri aims to form open-minded, well-experienced and educated (young) people with a commitment to support the diversity of human lifestyles and beliefs and take on global responsibility. 

SHAMIRI is Kiswahili and it means to blossom and grow in a beautiful way. We chose this name as both, the Volunteers and the supported projects should 'shamiri' in the best way through our intercultural learning experience.
