PROGRAM
INFORMATION

Most of our programs are available to apply for at any point, but you should do so as soon as you can to make sure there is still space on the program, especially if you are planning to travel between June and August, as those spots can fill up very quickly.

It is advisable to apply as soon as possible, as some of our programs have a restricted number of spots that are filled rapidly.

Can I use this program as part of a university or college placement? 

We can provide the necessary documentation to ensure our programmes can be used as part of your university or college placement. Our project staff can help sign off any paperwork required.

Is it safe to travel to Tanzania destinations?

When it comes to safety, Tanzania is the safest country in East Africa, having remained politically stable since its independence in 1961. Upon your arrival, you will receive an orientation and a town tour to help you become acquainted with the local people and environment. Additionally, Tanzania is a popular tourist destination, home to Mount Kilimanjaro, the tallest mountain in the world, and the Serengeti National Park, which hosts the migration of around two million wildebeest and other wildlife. Tourists and other foreigners are a common sight in Tanzania.

Once they have paid the deposit and confirmed their spot on the program, volunteers will be given a Volunteer welcome letter. This letter contains all the necessary details, including what to pack, how to obtain a visa, and local language guides. It is crucial that you read the letter thoroughly. If you have any questions which the letter does not cover, our team is available to help.
