Recruiting Organization: The Small Things Inc
Are you interested in ethical volunteering opportunities in Tanzania? If so, The Small Things (TST) is the place for you! TST is a US-based NGO working on the ground in northern Tanzania. We integrate a comprehensive family preservation program with high-quality, loving, community-based residential care. That means keeping children in homes where they belong, caring for them when their families can’t, and doing all that we can to reunify children in our care with relatives. We are also managing the Families and Futures Coalition - a coalition of organisations working together in order to help grassroots organisations improve their quality of care and move toward family-first models.
TST invites interested volunteers from all over the world to come and see our impact first-hand. We work closely with the local community to create high-impact, ethical volunteer opportunities for those interested in affecting sustainable and long-lasting change. In order to best support the attachment needs of our children, volunteers must commit to a minimum of two months to be considered for this program. Please note that in order to preserve healthy attachments, contact with our residential children will be limited in most cases.
Volunteer opportunities include:
- working with students and teachers in a capacity-building role at our TST preschool, and/or our partner school Silverleaf Academy
- assisting our development team in fundraising and communications
- working at our newly established Coalition Hub in the after-school enrichment program and community education classes
If you have a specific area of expertise or interest, please get in touch as we may be able to customize a volunteer role to suit.
Our volunteers fundraise or contribute $600/month, which includes $400/month towards their accommodation, and $200/month towards our programs. We will support your fundraising efforts, so check us out at www.thesmallthings.org or email our Visitor and Volunteer Coordinator firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions!
