The mission of this program is to support the women of the Arusha area who have suffered from abuse.  

The Women's Empowerment program aims to assist these women offering them a refuge to escape the violence and a safe place to re-group and plan for a better life. The program was founded in 2006 to fight human trafficking and other injustices, while giving girls and young mothers a second chance in life and has helped hundreds of women and their children to date. The program offers temporary residence for girls, young mothers and their babies. All girls and young mothers can get medical assistance, counselling and advocacy. The women are educated in mathematics, English, computer, health education and life skills and one-year vocational trainings are offered in cooking and tailoring and in entrepreneur skills for starting and running their own business after graduation. While the mothers attend school or the vocational training, their children will be supervised in the day care or the pre-school, depending on their age. Girls and women who didn’t finish their schooling will be given a chance to finish their education. This program truly empowers women and girls who have suffered abuse and helps them to achieve a brighter future.  

Goals of this Project:

  • Provide essential care and support to vulnerable women and children
  • Improve the future prospects of abused and disadvantaged women through education and skills
  • Give impoverished women and children quality care, compassion and a sense of hope
  • Enable inter-cultural exchange which benefits both locals and international volunteers alike.

Start Dates

This project is available year-round and programs start every SUNDAY. Volunteers can choose to participate for periods ranging from 2 weeks 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 us provide support to some of Tanzania's most marginalized and vulnerable women. While this challenging project does not require participants to have a background in the fields of social work, counselling and/or Women’s studies, as there are many ways you can assist, volunteers with suitable education, qualifications or experience are highly sought after. Regardless, a volunteer’s individual role can often be tailored to suit their particular skills and interests. All applicants must of course display 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!
