Hello all workawayers,
we are a non-governmental organization (NGO) based in Ituha Village outside the city of Mbeya in the Southern Highlands of Tanzania. Founded in 2004, we work to unify, train, and empower a diverse field of local experts to design and operate various developmental programs. Our areas of programmatic expertise include education, HIV/AIDS awareness, natural resource management, supplying wheelchairs,supplying library books to community secondary schools and private secondary schools and small and micro entrepreneurship.
I thank workaway for their website. We are receiving so many volunteers from BRAZIL, FRANCE, GERMANY, HONGKONG, INDIA, ITALY, KOREA, ROMANIA, SWITZERLAND, TANZANIA, USA, etc. We still require more volunteers.
Currently, we are also working outside the scope of our organization because the volunteers who are coming to our organization have different backgrounds and different interests. Some of them want to work in certain sectors which we don't deal with. So, to cater to this demand we are connecting to other organizations in different parts of Tanzania to place volunteers of every background and interest in the field/sector that they like/enjoy. Some of the volunteering sectors are :
> medical staff in hospitals/clinics.
> teachers in secondary/primary/nursery/kindergarten schools.
> administrative staff in various institutions.
> (NGO) non governmental organizations, (NPO) non profit organizations.
> research institutes.
> staff for industries.
> tourist centers and travel companies etc.

This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Our work includes :
> supplying the wheelchairs to the disabled.

> training the local government officials in good governance and accountability.
> providing teachers to secondary/primary schools specially for teaching the subjects of Physics, Mathematics, Chemistry and other sciences.
> operating a nursery school and a vocational training school.
If you feel that the above sectors are of your interest, then you are very much welcome to volunteer. Or if you want to volunteer in some other sectors of your interest (other than those mentioned above), you can write to us and we shall try to get you into the volunteering program of your interest by connecting you to other organizations that are affiliated to us.
1) We urgently need volunteers for teaching in different secondary schools across Tanzania...... specially who are able to teach the subjects of science (Physics, Mathematics, Chemistry, Biology) and language (English, French).

Limited internet access

We are smokers
Can host families
More than two
Almost 5 hours per day.
In developing countries (Where most hosts are involved in charity work or community development) some of our hosts may ask for a small donation to help the host family or charity (often less then 5 dollars per day) Workaway will allow this listing when the donation goes directly to the family or charity and is just to cover the cost of the volunteer‘s stay. (This will be clearly marked on the host listing).
We will strictly not allow listings posted by agents, “middle men” or projects who we feel are looking to profit from a volunteers stay.
