Human Rights Advocacy Volunteer in Africa

Summary

The Human Rights program includes working with Tanzanian human rights professionals focusing on children’s, women’s and disabled people’s rights but also focusing on limited sexual rights. Research focus can be included.

Details

Art in Tanzania maintains compliance with the Children’s Agenda Tanzania program that includes Children’s and Women's Rights focus. We also have an Art in Tanzania Rights team consisting of our team members, private Tanzanian people such as lawyers, and other rights-oriented citizens and participating interns and volunteers.

Practical work includes advocacy, partaking in seminars, teaching, and working towards gaining more visibility. Rights issues are always sensitive matters and teamwork and networking are important.

The Children’s Agenda program was developed by a team of NGOs including UNICEF and Save the Children, among others, and it is chaired by the Ministry of Community Work Gender and Children.

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 volunteer program 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.

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

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.
