A group of volunteers from the UAE are celebrating the success of their Eid volunteer mission in Zanzibar.

Over the five-day Eid break they travelled to the small fishing village of Kizimkazi to expand the ‘Seeds of Light’ school. They built five classrooms, a playground and installed a rooftop power system

This project was funded by people and businesses in the UAE. A donation of more than Dh500,000 ($136,000) to the Tanzanian charity CR Hope Foundation was received.
