Volunteering In Tanzania
Tanzania has one of the most varied and unique landscapes in the world. Here you’ll find mountains – amongst them, Kilimanjaro, the highest peak in Africa, great lakes and numerous wildlife reserves.
Serengeti National Park is famous for its annual migration of millions of wildebeest and also has a large population of lions, leopards, elephants, rhinos and African Buffaloes.<

Shortly after achieving independence from Britain in the early 1960s, Tanganyika and Zanzibar merged to form the nation of Tanzania in 1964. Tanzania is bordered by Burundi, Congo, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Rwanda, Uganda and Zambia.
Arusha is one of the bigger cities in the north of Tanzania at the base of Mt. Meru, not far from the border with Kenya. It is well known as an African Congress center containing the site for the International Tribunal for the Rwandan Genocide.
Tucked at the foot of Mount Meru, the town of Arusha is the first stop on the northern safari circuit and is the undisputed safari capital of East Africa.
Moshi lies one hour and a half drive from Arusha, set on the edge of the plains which ascend toward the huge Kilimanjaro massif.
Programs start every 1st and 3rd Monday of each month, with arrival Sunday prior to the program start at KIA (Kilimanjaro International Airport). Upon arrival you will be picked up at the airport and driven to your accommodation.
During the first 1-3 days, you will get a briefing about Tanzania’s various cultures, religions, and local ways of life, an orientation in town and some Swahili lessons.
This introduction will be held in Arusha.
Before you travel
Even though WE always try to give the best service, also in Tanzania, don’t expect European living standards or precise work schedules. It is a big challenge to live and work in a poor country. It demands courage, some experience and the ability to adapt. It can be overwhelming, especially at first, to have to adjust to completely new conditions, communicate in a foreign language etc. Things are not as you are used to, the climate, the food, the atmosphere – everything is different. During your work you will be faced with a harsh social reality and experience things a tourist would never see.
To take part in the voluntary work program, maturity, flexibility, independence and the desire to do social work are necessary. Your stay is an experience you will never forget. Volunteering in Tanzania enables you to explore both this great country and yourself. The World is yours – Join it!
