Volunteer Tanzania

Tanzania is a great place to volunteer. Formed in 1964 by the merger of Tanganyika and the island of Zanzibar it is a stable democracy attracting inward investment and is in 152nd place out of 186 countries and territories in 2013 when ranked in terms of life expectancy, literacy, access to knowledge and the living standards of a country.

With a population of around 44 million, Tanzania is nevertheless a country facing many challenges, few of which are unique to sub-Saharan Africa. There is wide-spread poverty, water access can be poor and life  expectancy is just 53 yrs old not least because of poor health care provision and access with one in every six children in Tanzania dying before their fifth birthday.

AIDS/HIV is also a major concern with a staggering two million children in Tanzania orphaned by the virus. Fortunately the stability of the country makes its attractive to volunteer work projects which mainly focus on working with orphaned, marginalized and abandoned children; developing AID/HIV awareness and rolling out treatment programs, and promoting education particularly amongst girls and young women whose take up rate is traditionally poor in a country where three million children do not attend any education. If you do volunteer in Tanzania remember its also an awesome place to visit for tourist activities when you are in the country from the Serengeti National Park, the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Tarangire National Park, Lake Manyara National Park and, of course, Mount Kilimanjaro.

If you run or know of a volunteer work project in Tanzania let us know by contacting here. We look forward to hearing from you!
