Volunteer Programs in Tanzania

Volunteer Programs

Volunteer programs in Tanzania are located in and around Arusha in the north of the country. Love Volunteers’ along with our local partner and on-going support from volunteers are working together to make a difference in one of Tanzania’s poorest communities.

Projects are available within schools, orphanages, and the wider community. With a strong focus on community development and environmental conservation there are plenty of areas for volunteers to get involved. Placements in this stunning country can often be customized to suit the profile of the volunteer. Past participants have volunteered in primary and secondary schools, with women’s development groups, in orphanages and community centers, as well as assisting with sustainable gardening, tree planting, clean water projects and recycling.

So why volunteer in Tanzania? When you volunteer here, you get to see on a daily basis how urgently your help is needed. Your efforts directly impact on the lives of people affected by political unrest and poverty. 

The programs on offer require support from volunteers to continue providing valuable support to communities. You can get involved in childcare and development, community development programs, animal welfare, medical internships in clinics and hospitals that are sorely underfunded and under resourced or women's empowerment programs that make a massive impact on the lives of the women participating. 

In Tanzania the people you come into contact will be eager to involve you in their world. You will need to use your initiative and judgment when volunteering here, but you will no doubt be touched by this fascinating country. You may also find your previously-held values have changed as a result of your stay here. 

With volunteer programs starting from $199, this is a country where a little can go a long way. For those who are passionate about Africa and unfamiliar with Tanzania, investigate our programs to discover how you can make a difference today.
