Volunteer in Tanzania

Our volunteering programs in Tanzania take place in the city of Arusha and the rural district of Simanjiro.

In Arusha, the programs include teaching subjects like math and physics. In rural Simanjiro, volunteers can teach at nursery schools and primary schools (all subjects).

Medical students and professionals can also volunteer at small hospitals and mobile clinics in Simanjiro as part of a health care internship.

In your free time, you can visit Mount Kilimanjaro (the highest mountain in Africa), along with some of the world’s most beautiful beaches in Zanzibar.

No visit to Tanzania would be complete without a visit to one of its national parks like the Serengeti with its annual wildebeest migration.
