International Volunteering

We welcome international volunteers to support our work at Kijana Kwanza from just a week to a whole year! We also provide volunteer accommodation on site.

As part of your volunteering we can provide you with comprehensive support from the moment you arrive until the end of your placement. We can also arrange visits to local tourist sites at a special discounted rate for Kijana Kwanza volunteers.

All our volunteer placements are tailored around your interests and skills – whether you’re a student or a qualified and experienced professional, you are most welcome. We’re also very happy to consider developing additional programmes and activities that will benefit young people in Tanzania.

Prospective volunteers are encouraged to contact us directly to discuss their ideas. Although we are always in need of native English speakers to deliver language classes formally – or through informal conversations – there are lots of other opportunities.

Some examples of volunteering include:

  • Coaching sports (in particular football!)
  • Running a first aid workshop
  • Organising an arts project
  • Teaching young people a specific skill like tailoring, DIY or gardening

We normally request a small contribution from prospective volunteers towards the cost of facilitating your volunteering. We also lack specialist equipment and would encourage volunteers to bring their own resources, where possible.
