Summary

Art in Tanzania is partnering with a consortium of NGOs and private sector actors to evaluate and produce solutions to the combination of climate change and human rights issues in rural Africa.

Details

Some 75% of Tanzanian people live in rural areas and their livelihood, which is based on agricultural income, will be seriously affected by climate change.

The most vulnerable groups such as women, youth, and people living with disabilities are most affected.

This program is a multi-professional student approach to evaluate the present situation, to consider future scenarios, and to develop solution models.

We use our social media pages for advocacy work and our Facebook pages have more than 50K followers.

Your volunteer program is being daily supervised by academic level team leaders. We monitor your work with a weekly plan and report system to secure you proceed well in your study program.

The outcome of your volunteer program is to learn to use and to get experience to implement your education in developing country conditions with limited capacitation. Also to better understand the opportunities in a fast-growing economy.

Volunteers work in teams of international students and volunteer professionals. We encourage innovation in the program approach. Work hours are 6-8 hours per day, Monday through Friday.

This is an ongoing program so we can adjust your start dates. We accept applications of all students and alumni. Your placement is tailored according to your background, experience, and interests to empower our daily work with the communities. Your program can be from 2 weeks up to 12 months. You can also conduct thesis and related tasks. The common daily tasks include practical fieldwork, planning, reporting, and visibility tasks.

There are no program fees. We charge USD 120 per week for accommodation with breakfast and dinner.

The start and end dates are flexible and can also accommodate other travel arrangements in Tanzania. International flights, student permits, accommodation, and meals are personal costs.

You and your visiting friends can enjoy sustainable tourism, safaris, and local tour options at a low cost.

To book you in and to open your personal account, we need your tentative arrival and departure dates that can be adjusted.

BASICS:

• All international flights are personal costs.

• You do not need much money here for living costs. If you attend a safari, Mt Kilimanjaro climbs, etc., prepare a budget from USD 500 to USD 1600 depending on which program you choose. We have various student options.

• Safety: Tanzania is probably safer than in your home place.

• Vaccinations: Only common shots as tetanus, hepatitis, etc. that you keep valid in any case.

• Malaria: You can use preventives but in case you get malaria, you will routinely receive medication here.

• Medical services: There are many clinics and hospitals with easy access. The medication standard is good, and the cost is nominal.

• Please purchase common travel insurance.

• Working hours are 6-8 hours per day from Monday to Friday and can be adjusted.
