Live & Work in a Tanzanian Village

Volunteering in Tanzania

Tanzania is now one of East Africa’s top travel destinations, however, away from these tourist areas there is very different side to the country. Education is a priority in Tanzania and primary education is both free and compulsory. By the late 1980’s the country’s literacy rate was one of the highest in Africa but much of this initial success has been lost.

Our gap year work programs are based in communities around Arusha and Machame (near Moshi). This is Maasai country, a tribe known for their beautiful clothing and beaded jewellery. You will gain an understanding of everyday life, away from the luxury beach hotels and safari camps; and contribute directly to a community, making a big difference on a small scale.

There is no better way to get under the skin of the amazing African people. This gap year program will allow you to gain an insight, that is much more than skin deep, into their ancient cultures and customs, by living, working and playing with them – a total immersion!

Become part of the community As part of a group you will live in the middle of a community, learning about the local culture, engaging and connecting with people with lives vastly different to your own. It’s about sharing your skills and knowledge in a way that is useful to them.

Make an Impact We are passionate about the difference you can make and we work with each participant individually to ensure you can use your skills to make a meaningful contribution.

Independent, supported travel After your project ends, you can choose to include four weeks of travel whilst still making use of our 24/7 in-country support.

Gap Year 100 We are committed to taking a maximum of 100 per year on our gap year programs. As a non-profit, AV’s focus is on providing both volunteers and our partner communities with the best experience possible and by limiting our numbers we ensure we can treat every applicant individually and place them where they can have the most impact.

AV programs are no ordinary gap year experiences, it’s a community of individuals with shared experiences and we are with you long after you get back from the project. “Once an AV, always an AV.”
