Type: Teaching & Education,
Spend time volunteering in Moshi, a rural community in Tanzania, at the foot of the great Mount Kilimanjaro. Focus on capacity building as you not only teach to improve the education of children, but assist in the development of teachers and community leaders, to help them build strong future for the community. Education is very much viewed as a requirement for future generations and the means to escaping absolute poverty for those struggling at the present time.
The project works with local schools, and an HIV/AIDS organisation providing classroom assistance and after school club activities for its members. In addition, the project supports a women’s group who find themselves marginalised from the community due to their HIV status.
In your role, on Monday to Thursday you will assist with teaching, playing developmental games and activities with the children and assisting in the after school club, providing eager students with the opportunity to practice with a native English speaker. On Friday you will be asked to help with planting trees, repairing buildings or maintaining schools. You may also be given time to prepare your lessons for the following week.
Following your working day, you will have plenty of time to relax and socialise with your local counterparts and other volunteers. At weekends why not join a safari in the Serengeti, explore Ngorongoro Crater, or add on an extra week to the end of your placement and climb Mount Kilimanjaro.
While a teaching qualification and experience is preferred, especially for those wishing to lead lessons, all volunteers can add value to this project. As long as you have good English communication skills and are passionate about teaching and working with members of the community, then this project is for you.
All projects are self-funded, but include accommodation, food, airport transfer and training. Click to apply and a project advisor will be in touch to discuss price and availability.
