Sustainable Construction in Africa

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 model in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. We are testing traditional Africa construction materials and methods.

Details

We are using locally sourced bamboo, building basic dry toilets and simple grey-water collection systems for irrigation. 

We look to learn from traditional African construction using mud, trees, hey, stones and other village and tribal-based materials and techniques. 

Modern techniques include solar and led lights in first place but also to use innovation and creativity to develop interior designing combining modern technology and traditional style and eco materials. 

In addition, we advocate local builders, youth and international volunteers and interns in different techniques in more ecological living. Concerning designs and creative construction we wish to implement tree houses and similar new solutions. Interior design eco products as led lampshades made of natural materials can also be used to give new business to women groups.

We are using our Social Media pages for advocacy work and our Facebook pages have more than 50K followers.

We provide in-country orientation and training and academic tutoring for the program.

Interns work in teams of international students and volunteer professionals. Please contact us for information on customized and personalized programming. Arts in Tanzania's internships, facilities and operations are also accessible for those with disabilities. 

We also offer participants with disabilities personal assistants and drivers at additional expenses; $30 USD per week.

You and your visiting friends can enjoy sustainable tourism, safaris, and local tour options at low cost.

To book you in and to open your personal account we need your tentative arrival and departure dates.
