Do you have a passion for teaching and working with children?

This wonderful project was created with the goal of helping to improve the English speaking abilities of children in Arusha and to help with other subjects and activities. English is an essential language in the area, and important for securing future employment. An ability to speak English is hugely beneficial to youth, allowing them to pursue further education opportunities and to seek employment where English is an advantage, such as the tourism sector, important in this area with large numbers of tourists. Working as a volunteer teacher means you can help many low income children learn a tool that is vital to their future success. Love Volunteers place participants in multiple schools around Arusha at both a nursery and primary school level. These are some of the poorest schools in Arusha, often situated along the outskirts of town and are extremely underfunded and understaffed. Volunteers are greatly appreciated and make a huge difference to children’s learning. 

Goals of this Project:

  • Provide English language skills to children in impoverished Tanzania
  • Teach and interact with marginalized children in Africa
  • Improve the future prospects of some of Tanzania’s most impoverished children, and help them to break the poverty cycle
  • Expose volunteers and children to different people and cultures

Start Dates

This project is available year-round and programs start every SUNDAY. Volunteers can choose to participate for periods ranging from 1 week to 12 weeks. Longer stays can be arranged directly with the local team, but will be subject to availability and individual visa conditions.

Spaces on this project are limited and therefore subject to availability. Early booking is recommended.

Requirements

Love Volunteers welcomes all those 18 years and over who wish to help create a brighter future for children through the power of education. This project best suits those with experience and/or qualifications in the field of childhood development and education, though volunteers who simply wish to explore an interest in this field are also welcomed as there are many ways you can assist in the classroom. Whist not mandatory, completing a TEFL course prior to joining this project would prove to be highly beneficial. Ideally, volunteers on this project will have at least a basic knowledge of the local language in order to communicate effectively with staff and students, though this is not a pre-requisite. Importantly, all applicants must first and foremost have a genuine willingness to help, show drive and initiative, and bring a positive 'can-do' attitude. If this sounds like you, we want you on the team!
