Volunteering in Tanzania

Support community development in the shadow of majestic Mount Kilimanjaro

Volunteer in Tanzania with Projects Abroad, and become part of ongoing efforts to support local communities in the region. This is also a chance for you to experience life in East Africa while immersing yourself in the culture and traditions.


We have several different volunteer opportunities in Tanzania, so you’re sure to find something you’re passionate about. You can support early childhood education and teach English at a rural Maasai school, or help build classrooms at that same school. Or raise awareness about women’s rights, and empower local communities.


Our projects are based in Arusha and Moshi. These are both ideal locations to make a difference and experience local culture. In both towns, we have dedicated staff who will be on-hand 24/7 to advise and support you.


Volunteering in Tanzania will give you a unique insight into the variety of cultures in this region. During your free time, you can visit local markets, buy Batik artworks, and learn about the Maasai tribe. Tanzania also has so much to offer in the way of nature and wildlife. With lions, rhino, and elephants, it’s the perfect destination for a safari.


Through all your activities, you’ll be working with Mount Kilimanjaro as your breathtaking backdrop!
