Recruiting Organization: Art in Tanzania

Summary

Art in Tanzania supports and develops village women's initiatives. The main activities are vocational training in English, IT, entrepreneurship, women's rights, and related subjects. We are also developing medical services and health information sessions.

Details

Tanzania has many young mothers in the villages with little or no education and financial support. In addition, areas that are often heavily populated complicate the strive for livelihood and provision for these mothers' children.

Most women lack the opportunity to reach education to fund and develop small businesses. Additionally, many of these women are under-empowered or unaware of their fundamental human rights, thus making young mothers vulnerable to abuse.

Art in Tanzania's Women Empowerment program focuses on developing skills for women to start small businesses and create a market for their products. At the same time, we educate women's rights and related subjects to learn their rights in problem situations. We focus on being both innovative and effective.

We tailor the posts according to the participant's focus, interests, and skills.

We look to be innovative. Volunteers bring their ideas that we look for to strengthen the fieldwork.

We use teamwork to create opportunities. For example, one can teach how to start horticulture and look for the markets. The base effort is to increase small business skills through the educational approach and increase awareness.

We also focus on giving visibility to women's issues through social media for the general Tanzanian population.

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.

Academic-level team leaders are daily supervising your volunteering placement. We monitor your work with a weekly plan and report system to secure you proceed well with your tasks.

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.
