Description

Summary

Art in Tanzania works with corporate and governmental institutions to tackle natural and artificial environmental disasters.

Details

Tanzanian public knowledge of Disaster management is poor. People and their properties are affected by floods, earthquakes, landslides, diseases like malaria, cholera, hunger, poverty, desert, global warming due to climate change, and industrial incidents from poor health and safety in the workplace.

This program aims to educate and build Tanzanian people about resilience from the early stage to the last set of disaster management, such as mitigation, preparedness, response, and prevention at schools and public shares, with the help of various governmental and non-governmental institutions.

We work with entities such as Twiga Cement Industries, Coca-cola, the Tanzania government, NBC Bank, PVC, and AG-Energies Company Ltd. We are extending our program to work with the United Nations Organization.

This program has a cross-cutting focus where the students of different professionals can attend and work together.

The internship outcome is to learn to use your studies and experience to work in developing country conditions.

Work hours are 6-8 hours per day, Monday through Friday. Your program can be from 2 weeks to 12 months. Commonly, an internship is 2-3 months long. The placement starting dates are flexible.

Academic-level team leaders are supervising your internship daily. We monitor your work with a weekly plan and report system to ensure you proceed well with your tasks.

We can take students in all year round as all programs are ongoing. Your placement is tailored to your background, experience, and interests to empower our daily work with the communities.

The typical morning tasks include practical fieldwork in the schools and communities, and afternoons are for planning, reporting, and social media visibility functions.

The Benefits and Perks are as follows:


Accommodation with breakfast and dinner is EUR 175 per week and is a personal expense. However, the cost drops to EUR 125 weekly after the first 13 weeks.


Airport transfers from and to EUR 120 are a personal expense


Charity VISA for immigration is USD 50 and is a personal expense. A 3-6 months charity VISA is USD 250, and 12 months one is USD 500.


We pay you a USD 100 per month stipend. It is small but 2x Tanzania's national minimum wage. The minimum participation time for assistance is four weeks.


Flights are a personal expense.

Local transport programs in Tanzania are a personal expense but are small if needed.

You and your visiting friends can enjoy low-cost, sustainable tours and safaris.

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