Volunteer Tanzania is now closed for 2016.
Arusha, a vibrant starting point and the safari capital of northern Tanzania – the perfect place to call home for the next 5 weeks. As a bustling cosmopolitan city, you’ll have everything at your finger tips but more importantly your first chance to make a real difference. Education is improving in Africa but it’s slow progress with a lot of schools looking run down and dilapidated. This is where you come in, so pack your overalls and get your creative groove on as you’ll be contributing to improving various teaching facilities in and around schools with effective projects over the next few weeks.
Creating more engaging classrooms with decorations, building more sustainable furniture and creating fun teaching visuals for the kids are just some of the things you could be doing in your time. Fortunately over the years our volunteers have made a huge difference to the schools in the area, but this has only increased the demand for education which is why your help is needed even more!
It’s time to take a detour, spread your wings and take a break from routine. Famous for hosting millions of flamingos and spanning over 300 kilometres, Lake Manyara is a gem of a game reserve. For this week of rest and relaxation you’ll camp out on the reserve, live and breath life on safari and get to know Simba and co. first hand before heading back to Arusha.
