Our teaching programs in Tanzania place volunteers in schools and children’s homes. With class sizes sometimes as large as 100+ students, schools welcome volunteers to assist with teaching and serving as a positive influence. Volunteers do not need to be certified teachers or have previous teaching experience. Learning some basic words and phrases in Swahili will help you a great deal in connecting with the children.
