Recruiting Organization: Art in Tanzania

Summary

Art in Tanzania focuses on helping with educational tasks in the nursery, primary and secondary schools in Tanzania, and adult vocational training. The schools we help with are primarily poor village schools. Interns focus on developing primary education and also conduct advocacy work.

Details

Art in Tanzania's Educational program is part of our Children's Agenda approach implemented by a coalition including UNICEF and Save the Children.

We work in a village nursery and primary and secondary schools, but we also run adult vocational training where the focal point is the women.

The program also includes classes for children living with disabilities. Participants are specifically needed to cover subjects where the schools are weak.

Areas of development include English, arts and music, mathematics, and sports teaching.

Interns also advocate raising awareness about HIV/AIDS, health, and hygiene. Debate-based English training is a trendy subject. We use our social media pages for advocacy work, and our Facebook pages have more than 50K followers. We also highlight teacher-training activities.

Classroom tools are scarce, and the number of pupils in a school can be more than 40.

Academic-level team leaders are daily supervising your volunteer placement. In addition, we monitor your work with a weekly plan and report system to secure you proceed well in your study program.

The volunteering outcome is to learn to use your studies and experience to work in developing country conditions.

Work hours are 6-8 hours per day, Monday through Friday. Your program can be from 2 weeks to 12 months. The placement starting dates are flexible.

We can take volunteers in all year round as all programs are ongoing. Your placement is tailored to your background, experience, and interests to empower our daily work with the communities.

You can also conduct the thesis and related tasks along with your internship placement.

The typical morning tasks include practical fieldwork in the schools and communities, and afternoons are for planning, reporting, and social media visibility functions.

The Benefits and Perks are as follows:

Accommodation with breakfast and dinner is USD 175 per week and is a personal expense. However, the cost drops to USD 125 per week after the first 13 weeks.

Airport transfers from and to USD 120 are a personal expense

Charity VISA for immigration is USD 50 and is a personal expense. A 3-6 months charity VISA is USD 250, and 12 month one is USD 500.

We pay a USD 100 per month stipend to you. It is small but 2x Tanzania's national minimum wage. The minimum participation time is four weeks for the assistance.

Flights are a personal expense.

Local program transport in Tanzania is a personal expense but small if needed.

You and your visiting friends can enjoy sustainable tourism, safaris, and local tour options at a low cost.

We need your tentative arrival and departure to book you in and open your account.
