Teaching & Beaches
Your teaching project begins with a thrilling journey high above the turquoise Indian Ocean, as you fly to Mafia Island – the most beautiful of Tanzania's Spice Islands, where tranquil white sand beaches, friendly villagers, and world-class scuba diving sites combine to make this a true tropical paradise.
Your teaching assignment will integrate you into your host community as a welcome new member. You'll help teach students basic English and depending on the need, other subjects of your choosing, and you'll have ample opportunity to play sports and games with them, put on plays and concerts, and do other fun activities.
Tanzania, though beautiful and welcoming, is one of the poorest countries in the world. Access to basic education is scarce and many people in rural areas rely on subsistence farming to sustain a living. This is your chance to change the lives of those around you for the better and leave a legacy that will last for decades to come.
