Tanzania is one of the largest countries in East Africa. The vastness of our country is giving you the wide chance to choose where you want to volunteer, however, All our volunteering projects are community centred. We are situated in Northern Tanzania although we do our projects across the country.
If you're interested in volunteering in Tanzania, you can find a program that suits your budget. We offer a range of program fees that cover accommodation, meals, and in some cases support for the host organization. For more information on program fees, please check our program fee page. Your contribution will be a great help to the people of Tanzania, as it is one of the poorest countries in the world.
We expect certain skills from our international volunteers, thus certain requirements must be met during the application process. Volunteers must be at least 18 years old, although some children's projects such as day-cares and orphanages may make exceptions for those under 18 with special requests. Additionally, volunteers must have basic English skills in order to communicate with locals, as Tanzania is a member of the Commonwealth and English is one of the primary languages of communication among educated people.
