Red Sweater ProjectMto wa Mbu, ArushaTZ
Red Sweater Project collaborates with developing communities in the creation of affordable, accessible and innovative educational opportunities for children in rural Tanzania. The organization operates the Mungere School near the town of Mto wa Mbu in the northern Arusha Region.
ESL English Immersion Program Teacher We are accepting applications for an ESL-trained English Teacher to lead the English Immersion Program (EIP), teaching beginner language skills to Pre-Form I students (equivalent 7th Grade level) at the Mungere School, engaging them to speak, read, write and understand English in a creative environment.

Yet, Tanzanian secondary school curriculum is based in English medium and the language barrier can be a significant obstacle to learning. Teachers engage students in the year-long EIP to actively participate in English classes and extra-curricular activities designed to broaden skills to prepare them for their coursework in Form I.
