Summary

Art in Tanzania is introducing and implementing environmentally-friendly solutions for Tanzanian communities. These solutions include dry toilets, composting and household water reuse, and solar water purification systems. We also emphasize sustainable tourism operations.  

Details

Tanzanian communities lack the economic strength needed to implement environmentally friendly solutions in their households.

Presently less than 50% of the households have a toilet. Interns are developing sustainable and affordable solutions, including dry toilets for homes and schools.

This program includes an introduction to solar-based water purification as well. Other green work includes developing compost, finding sustainable sources for providing heat for cooking, developing tree and bamboo nurseries, educating the neighbourhood, and doing advocacy work.

Sustainable Wildlife Safaris and other tourism operations are essential local sources of funding. The safaris also help us in our work towards sustainability.

We are developing an NGO business model to streamline revenue back into communities. 

You can also get experience in an African tree nursery and help in planting operations. 

The working hours are 6-8 hours from Monday to Friday. Paid internships include a local minimum wage of USD 100 per month.

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

Academic-level team leaders are daily supervising your internship. In addition, we monitor your work with a weekly plan and report system to secure you proceed well in your study program. 

The internship outcome is to learn to use and get experience implementing your education in developing country conditions with limited capacitation. Also, to better understand the opportunities in a fast-growing economy. Interns work in teams of international students and volunteer professionals.

Work hours are 6-8 hours per day, Monday through Friday. The program term is from 2 weeks up to 12 months.

The program is ongoing, and so and the start dates are adjustable. We accept applications from all students and alumni. Your placement is tailored to your background, experience, and interests to empower our daily work with the communities.

Typical daily tasks include practical fieldwork, planning, reporting, and visibility work.

We provide 2x the local minimum wage of USD 100 per month for paid internships payable when you stay a minimum of 4 weeks.

The start and end dates are flexible and accommodate other travel arrangements in Tanzania. However, 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.

We need your tentative arrival and departure dates to book you in and open your account.
