Environmental Volunteer in Africa

Summary

Art in Tanzania is introducing and implementing environmentally-friendly solutions for Tanzanian communities. These solutions include the use of 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 households 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 as well as educating the neighborhood, and doing advocacy work. Wildlife safaris and other tourism operations are an important local source 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. 

There are no program fees. We charge USD 120 per week for accommodation with breakfast and dinner.

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

Your volunteer program 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 outcome of the volunteering 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.

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.
