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 village mothers with little education and financial support. In addition, areas that are often heavily populated complicate the fight for livelihood and provision for these mothers' children.

Most women lack the opportunity to achieve 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 are looking to hire multi-professional students and interns to support our work. We tailor the posts to the participant's focus, interests, and skills.

We look to be innovative. Interns bring their ideas that we look for to strengthen the fieldwork. We encourage innovation and self-led creativity in the professional program approach.

Work with women is underfunded, but Art in Tanzania has multi-professional interns and volunteers. We use teamwork to create opportunities. For example, one can teach how to start horticulture and look for the markets. The basic effort is to increase small business skills through an educational approach and increase awareness.


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

The internship outcome is to learn to use your studies and experience to work in a developing country's conditions.

Work hours are 6-8 hours per day, Monday through Friday. Your program can be from 2 weeks to 12 months. Commonly, an internship is 2-3 months long. The placement starting dates are flexible.

Academic-level team leaders supervise your internship daily. We monitor your work with a weekly plan and report system to ensure you proceed well with your tasks.

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

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 EUR 175 per week and is a personal expense. However, the cost drops to EUR 125 weekly after the first 13 weeks.

Airport transfers from and to EUR 120 are a personal expense.

A charity student or volunteer VISA is USD 50 and is a personal expense. Less than a 1-year multiple-entry charity VISA is USD 250.

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

You and your visiting friends can enjoy low-cost, sustainable tours and safaris.
