Summary

Art in Tanzania (NGO) is looking for students to help us to develop our Eco-campus in Madale village. We focus to develop as an eco-building role-model in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. We are testing traditional African construction materials and methods.

Details

We are using locally sourced bamboo to build basic dry toilets and simple grey-water collection systems for irrigation. We look to learn from traditional African construction, using locally sourced materials such as mud, trees, hey, stones, and other resources and techniques commonly used in the villages and tribes.

Modern techniques primarily include using solar and led lights, but we also use innovation and creativity to develop interior design combining modern technology, traditional style, and eco-materials. 

In addition, we encourage local builders, youth, and international volunteers and interns to learn different techniques oriented towards a more ecological style of living. 

Concerning designs and creative construction, we wish to implement tree houses and similar new solutions. 

Eco-products used in interior design, such as led lampshades made of natural materials, can also help to provide women with more employment opportunities.

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

Your internship 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 internship outcome 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.

Interns 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.

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 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.
