Short-Term (few weeks/months)
Dar es Salaam
In Tanzania, private and public schools have a long holiday during the month of December until early January. This is normally a most joyful time. However, not all children in the community can enjoy the season due to social and economic challenges and limitations. In partnership with local schools and community members, this project has been designed to offer an opportunity for children and teenagers between the ages of 6 and 14 from all social-economic backgrounds, ethnicity and religions to spend time together during the end-of-year festivities. Through this project we also aim to promote peace and harmony among various groups in the community.
Volunteers will support and assist the children in various activities during the project: - Games: Indoor and outdoor games that will stimulate learning, team building and activeness. Local games will be introduced as well foreign ones from the volunteers. Please bring new games to share with the kids. - Physical activities: Action jumping, Olympic Games, etc. - Gardening: Ornamental and vegetable planting, composting, garden tour, etc. - Nature activities: Bird watching, Plant a tree, Tree feeder, learning about various plants, birds, animals, worms, and insects available in the area. - Academic development: Holiday homework, various competitions aiming to motivate the kids to like education and get ready for the new year's studies. Intergeneration gatherings in the form of sports bonanzas, workshops, debates and study tours will be organized under the theme of the project to provide an opportunity for both program participants and host community members to understand the connection between the environment and children’s development.
No special or particular expertise/skills required. However, a potential participant in this project should be the one who is open minded and independent, interested in children and environment, asking questions and sharing views.
