Community Volunteering in rural Tanzania

Pays d’action: Tanzanie, Afrique
Type d’activité: Missions humanitaires, en faveur d‘enfants et de jeunes, Enseignement
Travel as part of a group and volunteer in pairs in the rural villages surrounding Moshi and Arusha. It is a wonderful opportunity to experience rural Tanzanian life and ideal for those ready for a challenge.

Description du projet et du rôle des volontaires

Set in a village near Arusha or Machame at the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro you will have the opportunity to teach English and/or coach sports on your own or with your volunteer partner at a rural government primary or secondary school. There is also time for coaching sports too, as well as art, drama and music for those who are keen on extra-curricular activities. Classes are large – in some cases 50+ children, so organising sports or controlling a class of this size can be challenging. Think on your feet and use your initiative! One volunteer attempted a relay race with 150 pupils!

The more you put into school life and getting to know the community, the more you will understand about this amazing country.

Spare time in the evenings or at weekends is spent preparing your lessons with your volunteer partner, marking books, or with the other volunteers and your new friends (neighbours and teachers). We encourage volunteers to get to know the locals – the teachers could even invite you to dinner. One volunteer was astounded by the welcome from her village near Arusha when she arrived; the teachers and locals invited her to their homes every weekend.

The 16 week volunteer project is followed by a 4 week period of independent group travel in East Africa all with 24-hour support from our local representative.
