Volunteer in Tanzania

Volunteer in Tanzania: Education English Missions

Volunteer in Tanzania at a local village school outside of Arusha.  Volunteers support local teachers that provide free education to orphans and vulnerable children in the community.  Volunteers needed to teach English and mathematics.

We do recommend you learn a few words and phrases of Swahili, which will be very helpful and appreciated by the children. Bringing teaching aids (flash cards, picture books, alphabet and number games, maps) with you is highly recommended, and needed.

Schools in Tanzania are closed for 2 weeks in late April, during August and December to January. Prior experience is not required, guidance will be provided as to what subjects to cover, but volunteer teachers will be expected to come with ideas to create and prepare lessons.

*Volunteers need a Tourist Visa to enter Tanzania (US$100) as of 2016 you can get it at the Tanzania airport. *Once in the country all volunteers must apply for a “Volunteer Permit” is US$250. All participants in the Tanzania program must secure a permit to volunteer.
