Volunteer in Tanzania

Volunteer in Tanzania: HIV Awareness and Care

Volunteer in Tanzania with a grassroots health organization based in a rural community outside of Arusha. As a volunteer you will support the home for children afflicted with HIV/AIDs, also contribute to the host based community outreach projects. The programs is helping hundreds of families living with HIV/Aids patients, and also does work to promote HIV education, health and hygiene information as well as a refuge for sick children. Working with this grassroots organization you will see how one person can truly help and change the life of someone in need.

Because of the remote location volunteers will help to distribute food and medicine when possible.  Volunteers need to accompany the children to the clinic for health checks.  Expect to support the children's home, outreach projects, home visits and other duties will depend on which projects the organization is working on when you are there. We do recommend you learn a few words and phrases of Swahili, which will be very helpful when dealing with the locals.

Due to the location and travel involved volunteers should budget $25 a week for local buses. Undergraduates, pre-medical and pre-nursing students are welcome.  Public health and social workers are welcome also

Visa/Permit Notes: “Volunteer Visa” is required for all program participants. The cost is US$250. Tanzania embassy information.
