    Description

    Hello, I am Alhaji.

    In 2015, we created a new organization in Arusha. Our organization is focusing on supporting struggling children and youth within our society by providing free education and social support. Our long-term goal is to reduce the amount of street children and poverty not only in our region, but throughout the entire country. So far our efforts have been largely successful, as most of our former pupils have achieved their goals.

    We are looking for any volunteers willing to support our organization, as we know that different people from different places can motivate our youth and help our teachers learn new methods of teaching and development. We are very open to any suggestions and we are gladly willing to let our volunteers teach whatever they want to share with our pupils. In exchange for helping us, we offer our volunteers many opportunities to discover African culture.

    In addition to our school we also run a small farm, the only source of income for our organization. Volunteers are welcome to help on the farm if interested.

    We are a recognized and registered organization under the law of our country. Volunteers are required to get a volunteering visa (250 USD) to volunteer with our organization.

    We look forward to hearing from you!

    Help

    We need volunteers to teach our secondary students various subjects (English, maths, biology, chemistry, geography, literature, Spanish, physics, etc.). There are two levels of students and classes run from 8AM-4PM each day. Volunteers are asked to teach one or two subjects depending on their backgrounds.

    Volunteers may also be asked to assist in our Preform (pre-secondary) classes, which run from September to December. Volunteers in the Preform classes will be assisted by our teachers.

    Our organization also runs a nursery with children aged 3-5. Volunteers interested in working in the nursery can give basic English lessons (counting, vocabulary, etc.) and childcare to the children.

    If interested, volunteers may be able to assist on the farm as well.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Our volunteers will live in a typical Tanzanian family home. They will experience African culture firsthand through living style, food, and daily activities. There are plenty of opportunities to learn Swahili from locals. We can also arrange classes for volunteers if there is interest.

    On days off, we are happy to arrange trips for our volunteers, including safaris, museums, parks, and other expeditions. There are many sights to see in and around Arusha, where our organization is located.
