Description

Summary

Art in Tanzania introduces and implements traditional African construction materials in modern-day construction and interior designs.

Details

Traditional African construction materials such as mud, hay, leaves, stones, and bamboo are still commonly used in low-income families.

These materials are eco-friendly and low-cost to use. We focus on using these raw African materials and construction techniques in modern-day solutions, such as mud-plastered walls and fences, makuti-covered roofs and sound insulation solutions, and lamp shades of bamboo. We look for new innovative ways to implement the African culture in households.

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 supervise 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 3-12 months charity VISA is USD 250.


We pay you a USD 100 per month stipend. It is small but 2x Tanzania's national minimum wage.

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.
