Description

Summary

Art in Tanzania runs safari and tour operations in Tanzania as part of NGO fundraising. Interns help develop the tour programs, guiding and marketing our tours and safaris.

Details

Art in Tanzania looks to set itself apart from the crowd regarding safari and tour business by offering sustainable travel options. Commonly, safaris are sold by tour agents located in the Western world. They sell the safaris, but only part of the money comes to Tanzania to support the economy.

Typically, villages around famous national parks are the poorest of the poor. Our tours' profit comes to Tanzania and supports the Tanzanian economy and community development activities.

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

The internship outcome is learning to use and get experience to implement your education in developing country conditions with limited capacity. Also, to better understand the opportunities in a fast-growing economy.

Work hours are 6-8 hours per day, Monday through Friday.

 The program is ongoing, and we can adjust your start dates. We accept applications from all students and alums. Your placement is tailored to your background, experience, and interests to empower our daily work with the communities.

The placement is from 2 weeks to 12 months. You can also conduct the thesis and related tasks.

The typical daily tasks include practical fieldwork, planning, reporting, and visibility.

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 month 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.
