Care & Community in Tanzania
High School Projects for 15-18 Year Olds
- Placement location: Arusha
- Types of placements: Care Centres
- Accommodation: Host Families or Guesthouse
- Age Requirements: 15-18 years old
Based in the town of Arusha in northern Tanzania this placement allows you to immerse yourself in the local culture and help bring a smile to the face of some vulnerable young children. You will live with other volunteers at a local host family or at a guesthouse during your stay.
During your time volunteering in Tanzania you will work in a care centre. The programme will involve both practical activities which could vary from building and renovating or painting and decorating to more care based activities including looking after and playing with the children.
English is becoming a vital necessity for the local Tanzanians and the children should start learning English as soon as they have the opportunity. During your placement you and your fellow volunteers will be able to plan some fun and interactive educational activities to do with the children to help and encourage them to learn English.
During the weekend you will get the opportunity to experience the breathtaking scenery in one of Tanzania's national parks. Those joining us on the four week programme will get extra visits and activities arranged during the other weekends.
