The English Teaching Program in Tanzania aims at the educational development and enhancement of underprivileged children in Arusha. If you have a grip on English Language and wish to spread the knowledge among the younger ones, so that they can have a better future, then you should definitely think of being a part of this.

As a volunteer on the Teaching project in Tanzania, you will work in English-medium schools or government schools and at the public library teaching kids, the presence of volunteers is beneficial in opening the minds and broadening the horizons of the students and the community in general, along with exposing them to native English speakers and other languages. Children in Tanzania love to attend school, often starting as young as 3 years old, and wherever possible, children hope to stay in school until at least 13 years old, as education is highly valued in Tanzanian society.

If you’re someone who is passionate about teaching and you want to help increase access to education in under-resourced communities in Tanzania, this project will be a good fit for you and we will be glad to hear from you.

You will have the opportunity to interact with local people to learn more about our culture, language and Tanzanian ways of living. We offer our Volunteers a great cultural exchange to live with and experience the real Tanzanian life from its roots.

Help

On this project, you will either work by yourself or alongside local teachers and other volunteers, teaching subjects, such as English, Math, Science, Social Studies (Geography and History), Art and Physical Education. There can be between 30 and 80 children in each class and you will often assist the local teachers with daily lessons, providing one-on-one attention to the students and sometimes relieving the teacher of a class or two per day.

Accommodation

Volunteers are either accommodated in a volunteer house or a homestay with a host family. Volunteers can expect to share a room with other volunteers of the same gender. Volunteers in homestays can expect to be living with other volunteers. Living is basic but the volunteer house and homestays have running water and electricity. Bedding is provided, however you will need to bring your own towel and toiletries. It is also recommended to bring a sleeping bag for weekends away.

Meals
Tanzanian cuisine varies across the country, Staple foods in Tanzania include rice, ugali (maize porridge),Potatoes, Cooked banana, chapatti and coconut milk. Volunteers are served three meals per day breakfast, lunch and dinner. Breakfasts generally consist of chai (tea), toast, fruit and mandazzi (deep fried dough). A typical lunch can include meat and vegetables with rice and fruit, while dinner usually sees traditional food, such as ugali and chapatti accompany the meat and vegetables. If you have any special dietary requirements, please let us know so we can make arrangements for you. We will do our best to see that you are well taken care of, but as a volunteer, there is a need to be flexible.
