Volunteer in Tanzania: is the largest of the East Africa countries (i.e. Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania) and offers spectacular landscape from the coastal plains to the east; the inland saucer-shaped plateau; and the highlands and the coastal islands. The country is named after Tanganyika, its mainland part, and the Zanzibar islands off its east coast. Gaining independence in 1961, Tanzania is a stable, peaceful country with few tribal or regional divisions.

Some of Tanzania’s ecologically significant wildlife parks include the famous Ngorongoro Crater, Serengeti National Park in the north, and Selous Game Reserve and Mikumi National Park in the south. Gombe National Park in the west is known as the site of Dr. Jane Goodall's studies of chimpanzee behavior. In addition to its stunning landscape, Tanzania is home to approximately 120 tribal groups. Tribal diversity is respected and far from being a source of separation, Tanzanians place a high value on their country’s multicultural heritage.

A Broader View programs are based in and around the city of Arusha in northern Tanzania. Volunteers support in Arusha have helped hundreds of families by working in the local pre-school, at local orphanages, in a maternity clinic, regional hospital and also with HIV awareness outreach projects. A Broader View offers programs for family volunteering, medical outreach, woman vocational support and university led service trips. Many volunteers travel to Tanzania to participate in a safari, but also help the country by contributing to a community-led program.

With housing available up to 30 volunteers, A Broader View has hosted hundreds of university student groups, peace corp alternative teens and family volunteers in our Tanzania volunteer programs. If you have a group of 5 or more interested in volunteering together, customized programs can be arranged. A Broader View Volunteers has extensive experience working with students, teachers and families providing tailor-made service trips for small groups.

Visa/Permit Notes: A tourist visa is required to enter Tanzania. As of November 2017, the visa cost is US$100, and available to purchase at customs when you land in Tanzania.  All volunteers must also buy a “Volunteer Permit” once in Arusha Tanzania. The cost is US$250.
