We are currently looking for up to three volunteers to assist with our Free Education program at Good Hope. This involves teaching English skills, Geography via your own experiences in your home countries or travels, or whatever project you want to share with the students that will enhance their knowledge of English and other subjects.

You will work with the most adorable, respectful and eager to learn teenagers that you could ever imagine. As you arrive at school each day they will vie for the privilege of carrying your bags, greet you with amazing smiles and as time goes on, confide and trust in you as their teacher. Do not confuse the Good Hope kids with your current experience of teenagers! Our kids take their second chance to education seriously! Our team and our students offer volunteers an opportunity to enter their lives and hearts with an openness that gives back rewards in personal fulfilment and experience a thousand fold.

While working at Good Hope you actively contribute to a brighter future for our marginalized youth in the suburbs of Moshi. But more than that, we welcome you to live with us, learn about a new culture and language. Let us share and learn from each other!

About Good Hope Support Organization

Majengo kwa Mtei, Sokoni, Moshi, Kilimanjaro 8580, TZ

Mission Statement

Good Hope's mission is to provide education, skills, knowledge, and emotional support to disadvantaged youth in the community and to enable them to find formal employment.

Description

Good Hope is a grassroots community organization located in the Majengo neighborhood of Moshi. Moshi is located in northern Tanzania under the watchful gaze of Mount Kilimanjaro, and Majengo is one of the least developed neighborhoods in the Moshi region.Education is the key component of the work Good Hope does in the community, and its work is based on three pillars:

1. A free two-year secondary school preparation program and afternoon program in our youth centre

2. A primary/secondary school and vocational training sponsorship program

3. Community social work and career counseling with Moshi’s youth and families

Good Hope’s main objective is to support the students of Moshi’s suburbs from the time they finish primary school all the way up to their university education or vocational training. There is the opportunity for sponsors to fund the education of students in primary and pre-primary programs as well.

Good Hope focuses on disadvantaged youth, providing them the skills and education necessary to provide for their families in the future, while achieving their professional goals. Students living in financial hardship, and/or have family or health issues usually have little chances for higher education, but with Good Hope as a stepping stone, our students demonstrate their ability to persevere and make a difference in their community and family’s lives.
