In Moshi, a small town at the foot of Kilimanjaro, we work with various social organisations providing services for children and youth from disadvantaged backgrounds, including kindergartens, afternoon care facilities or community centers. In Tanzania, there are approximately 4 million children under 14 who are not appropriately cared for.
How can you get involved?
As an online intern in the field of social work, you can support the local staff with case management, strategic planning and administrative tasks.
Sample internship: Support local social workers in a Tanzanian community center:
The Community Center was founded in 2010 and supports children and young people between the ages of 6 and 18. The children and adolescents still live with their own families, but often visit the center (often together with their parents) to receive counseling services, take part in educational workshops or simply to meet other children and adolescents and to spend time with them and their families in a pleasant and safe environment.
The Community Center carries out regular school and home visits to families and offers advice on various topics. Workshops and seminars as well as weekend leisure activities are provided as well. Workshops and seminars include topics such as education, health, nutrition, self-esteem, human rights, basic knowledge in the area of financial planning etc.
Possible tasks for online interns include e.g. working in case management, writing reports, strategy planning, social media activities, planning and designing workshops and seminars, fundraising and planning events and campaigns.
For this online internship you won't have to travel to Tanzania yourself. The communication with your internship supervisor will take place via video conferencing, email and instant messaging services. You can work comfortably from home, broaden your knowledge working in an international team, and build your CV at the same time!
