Volunteering in Tanzania will help one of the most highly populated countries of Africa. Unfortunately approximately a third of the 47 million people who live in Tanzania live well below the poverty line due to social, political and economic disparities and half the population are under the age of 15. Volunteering in Tanzania can seriously change the lives of these people.
There are so many different projects to get involved with when you volunteer in Tanzania. Teach English to knowledge-thirsty studentsand help promote the need for girls to stay in school and be educated. Assist in the construction and repair of buildings such as schools, hospitals, clinics and community centresor support local health care workers promoting campaigns based on public health, sanitation and the spread of HIV and AIDS.
