Volunteers will support to several dance schools that have been created with the objective of promoting the social, economic and cultural development

If you are passionate about dance, you will have the opportunity of putting your knowledge into practice by creating workshops and choreographies for Tanzanian dancers. You will see that Tanzanians will be very interested in learning new dance techniques. What’s more, you will learn African dance and  the most important rituals of tribe dances. You can also use dance for teaching with educative purposes in local schools and orphanages.

We highly recommend you to bring your laptop and camera. Donations of dance material are more than welcome and also any music or video material for teaching new dance techniques.

*Volunteers need a Visa called CTA (Carrying on Temporary Assignment Pass) to enter and volunteer in Tanzania (US$250) that can be obtained upon your arrival to the Kilimanjaro airport. All participants in the Tanzania program must secure a permit to volunteer.
It is very important to carry the required cash for paying it from your country since the airport does not accept debit or credit card payments and there are not any cash machines there.

Requirements

PROACTIVE Jump in and maintain a positive attitude.
PATIENT Life in your host country moves slower than one might be used to. Relax and enjoy the slow pace. Remember, not everything is as organized and predictable as life in the US or UK.
FLEXIBLE Plans change, roads get flooded, and electricity goes out. Realize that not everything goes as planned, but good intention is always there.
CONSIDERATE Respect those around you and be a reliable worker at the program site. Tell your host family if you will be late. Advise the Project Coordinator if you are sick and can not work.
RESPECTFUL Remember that the local people you are working with, side by side, do so with little or no salary. They do this work because they believe in it. There are times when you may not agree with or understand the organizations decisions or direction. Although your suggestions are always welcome, your faith, respect and consideration for their long term work and commitment is appreciated.
FRIENDLY In order to truly help someone you must get to know them. Do not be afraid to make friends with the local people. Smile, wave and see how fast you are welcomed into the community.
TOLERANT The food, the culture, the smells and the sounds will be unfamiliar to you at first. We recommend that you dive in and experience life head-on. You will be surprised at how quickly you will adapt.
