In Tanzania, schools face huge overcrowding issues, with the average primary school classroom holding 66 students. On top of this drop out rates are extremely high, with 57% of secondary school age children not enrolled at school.

  • Conversational English

  • STEM

  • Creative arts

You might also work on a renovation project to help improve school facilities.

Program Structure

When you arrive in Tanzania you’ll be met by our team at the airport. Over the next few days you’ll have a thorough induction and orientation where you’ll learn about local customs and culture, get your bearings around town, meet community partners and gain a better understanding of the context of the projects you’re working on.

Over two weeks, you’ll work in the community Monday - Friday with your weekend free to travel and explore. Your day will usually be structured with a morning session (approx. 3 hours) after breakfast and then a session of the same length after lunch. Your afternoons and evenings will be free for you to relax or do any required planning for the next day. 

On the last day, you’ll either be transported back to the airport or you can join our extension trip safari!

extending your volunteer trip

After your Challenge you can join our optional extension trip and explore the wonders of the Serengeti. You'll visit both the Tarangire and Manyara national parks where you'll be able to see over 100 species of birdlife, tigers, cheetahs, elephants, zebras, giraffes and more! In the Ngorongoro Crater you'll get to go on a guided tour and be a bystander to the 30,000 animals of the Ngorongo Conservation Area. At the end of the trip you'll have time to explore the beautiful Arusha National Park while taking in the awesome views of Mt Kilimanjaro.
