Village Education Program Volunteer in Africa


Art in Tanzania focuses on helping with educational tasks in the nursery, primary and secondary schools in Tanzania as well as in adult vocational training. The schools we help are mostly poor village schools. Interns focus on developing primary education and also conduct advocacy work.


Art in Tanzania’s Educational program is part of our Children’s Agenda approach implemented by a coalition including UNICEF and Save the Children, among others. We work in a village nursery and in primary and secondary schools, but we also run adult vocational training where the focal point is the women. The program also includes classes for children living with disabilities. Participants are specifically needed to cover subjects where the schools are weak.

Areas of development include English, arts and music, mathematics, and sports teaching. Interns also advocate in subjects such as raising awareness about HIV/AIDS, health, and hygiene. Debate-based English training is a very popular subject. We use our social media pages for advocacy work and our Facebook pages have more than 50K followers. We also highlight teacher-training activities.

Tools in the classrooms are scarce, and the number of pupils in a classroom can be more than 40. 

Energetic and innovative teachers are needed.

The working hours are 6-8 hours per day from Monday to Friday.

Your volunteer placement 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 volunteering outcome 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 from 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.

We have no program costs. The accommodation with breakfast and dinner is USD 125 per week.

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. - Tumaini nursery school - Adult Vocational Teaching
