If you want to volunteer in one of our Primary schools it would be helpful if you have a basic knowledge in Kiswahili.
Let us know what kind of volunteering work you prefer so we can give you further information about the projects. One of our last volunteers renovated a classroom at Wondo Primary School together with a group of local volunteers. Work like this is also possible and you’re more than welcome to bring your own ideas for projects.
Please don’t forget to check the Covid-19 rules of your country before you start your journey to Tanzania.
