Ikirwa SchoolVillage of MidaweArusha, TZ

Our very first volunteer and his students showing off an art project


We are looking for volunteers with primary school teaching experience to
work alongside our staff in K-4 classrooms for a period from two weeks to one year. We are looking for opportunities for our staff to learn modern classroom teaching methods with emphasis on constructivist approach, independent study, collaborative learning, and alternatives to rote teaching. We also would welcome special education and ESL specialists.

We also welcome volunteers without formal teaching background who are interested in being tutors, working with individual students to improve basic reading, conversation and math skills.

Our school is in-session year-round, with three month-long breaks in April, August and December. We request that volunteers under the age of 18 are accompanied by adults.

We ask our volunteers to arrange for their own travel to Tanzania. We can arrange for transportation to and from Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO) for $50. Fees are subject to change. We are able to provide modest accomodations, bottled water and 3 meals a day for up to 5 volunteers near school premises for a daily fee of between $10-$15.

For our US-based volunteers we are able to provide a tax deduction letter for the cost of travel an boarding.
