VOLUNTEERING IN TANZANIA
Nestled in the shadow of Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s most epic peak, you’ll find the small town of Moshi. And this topographical giant is just one of the incredible wonders of nature that you’ll find in the region. During your time as a volunteer in Tanzania with the Chagga community, the people of Moshi, you’ll be working in a landscape full of waterfalls, coffee plantations, and banana fields.
Among the most prevalent issues in Tanzania are those presented by the lack of resources, residual effects of a colonial past, and the impact of HIV/AIDS. Only a little over half of children attend school, and high levels of infant and child mortality prevail. With Mount Kilimanjaro as a stunning backdrop for your volunteer work in Tanzania, you’ll have a chance to work side by side with vulnerable people to build better, healthier futures.
OUR VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES IN TANZANIA
Once enrolled, you will have the chance to select the volunteer opportunity that’s most interesting to you. Volunteers will always receive their first preference. The only exception to this will be when there are national or school holidays, or there are exceptional circumstances.
The KIVOLEX Education & Literacy Project
Education is highly valued in Tanzania, where you’ll find children with a true love of learning. But sadly, many children are only able to attend school until age 14. Work with The KIVOLEX Education & Literacy Project and you’ll support schools where the teaching staff is highly under-resourced and often unavailable. Help inspire children to foster a lifetime love of learning by introducing engaging new techniques, games, and enthusiasm. Be a part of the transformation; turning an educational system based on rote memorization into a vibrant setting where children can learn and develop on their road to maximizing their human potential.
The KIVOLEX Child Development Project
In Tanzania Kilimanjaro, many children have been orphaned due to HIV/AIDS. These children are often abused or abandoned as their families struggle to provide for their most basic needs. The youngest generations are forced to grow up too quickly. Recapture and share the joy of childhood when you work with The KIVOLEX Child Development Project. As a role model, you’ll challenge a child’s imagination and open it to new possibilities. Your love and attention may be the only opportunity for one-on-one interaction in a child’s day, sparking newfound interest for both learning and play, and contributing to often-needed
The KIVOLEX Support for People with Disabilities Project
In the Tanzania Kilimanjaro region, where families sometimes struggle to provide 3 meals a day, children with disabilities often don’t receive the tools and resources needed to realize their full potential. Individual attention is much needed as children with a range of physical, cognitive, and learning disabilities are placed side-by-side in the same classrooms or care centers. The KIVOLEX Support for People with Disabilities Project works to provide a safe and nurturing space where a community of educators and nurturers join together to support children and their families, while also breaking down harmful community

VOICE FROM TANZANIA COMMUNITY
“By teaching English to our children, volunteers have helped us reach our educational goals for our students. They always have fun new ideas to share.”
“One-to-one tutoring works extremely well for our disadvantaged kids. All of the volunteers give a lot of attention and love to the kids. Lot’s of our students come from large, rigid families that may not pay enough attention to them. When they come to school and KIVOLEX volunteers are here, they get individual attention.”
“For people in our community, not understanding basic English is the same as being illiterate. KIVOLEX volunteers do an excellent job of practicing English with our students, giving them a greater chance of future success.”
“When volunteers visit the families of children impacted by HIV/AIDS, the families feel a sense of relief and solidarity.”
CULTURAL ACTIVITIES IN TANZANIA
Say hujambo — hello — to your new home on a KIVOLEX staff-led tour of Kilimanjaro. You’ll learn where to find the internet cafes and money exchanges, and how to catch the bus. You’ll also pick up some useful tips on how to navigate the market crowds and haggle with local vendors. You’ll kick your Tanzanian street smarts up a notch or two, and in no time, start to feel comfortable and at home.
SAFARI IN SERENGETI
If you’re not yet familiar with Africa’s “Big Five,” study up. Soon you’ll be reciting this list of the five most sought after animal encounters on command, and after a visit to Serengeti, you’ll have your own stories to share. Watch as water buffalo graze along a river’s edge, herds of elephants walk out of the African night and into view, leopards zip across grassy flats, rhinos wander between shady oases, and lions sun themselves on rocky outcrops.
