The school is a sponsored for poor children from different families in and out of Arusha . This is where you come in! Whether you are a qualified teacher or a student, you could help to make a big impact on the lives of underprivileged children in as a  teaching volunteer  in Tanzania.


Tanzanian schools are very vibrant places with most pupils extremely willing to learn. When you choose a teaching volunteer in Tanzania school , you may be asked to take lessons in English, maths, arts, computer or science, but don’t worry if you feel your strengths lie outside these areas – the children you teach will benefit from your enthusiasm and your ability to construct sentences in English. Games and sports are another important part of school life, so please be prepared to get involved with these as well. If you like you can spend the first few days working alongside a local teacher or established teaching volunteer, but we also encourage our volunteers to bring their own ideas and to get stuck in! You can make the classroom your own with your own rules and decoration. This will help to develop your skills as a teacher whilst providing help to those most in need.

At Teaching volunteer in Tanzania you are generally expected to work at their placement five days a week. Weekday mornings will start with breakfast with other volunteers at our volunteer house, with school starting at around 8.30am. Mornings are usually devoted to traditional school subjects, usually broken into classes of one hour each. At around 12pm you’ll get a break for lunch, which you can take with other volunteers and local staff. In the afternoons you’ll be taking additional classes but there is often time for games and sports and it will be your job to help run these.

You will generally finish your placement teaching volunteer in Tanzania at around 5pm, though you’ll find that the children will often want you stay around to play! After your placement you’ll get a chance to unwind with other volunteers and local team members over dinner, and we often organize games and activities of our own in the evenings. Weekends are also your own but there are always plenty of extra Adventures to do in

Tanzanian volunteers stay in our lovely volunteer hostel in the city of Arusha. It’s a comfortable and fun place to live  same and you’ll generally be staying in a same-sex dormitory.
