Program Details

We are a very young dynamic organization based in Ilboru Arusha.Our aim is to bring people from different backgrounds together to build a quality education system for children in primary schools all around Tanzania.

We are looking for volunteers to support our schools around Arusha. In primary schools, the focus lies on improving the English skills of young children from the age of 3 to 13, so that they can progress on to secondary school. Children in primary schools usually speak very little English, so volunteers need to be able to connect with them using simple teaching methods.

Along teaching English, volunteers in primary schools can implement other activities into the daily timetable to engage the young minds in creative ways through role-playing, arts and crafts or taking part in stimulating learning games.


Activities & Shift

We offer you the possibility to stay with one of our host families and experience the Tanzanian life from its roots. We personally know all of the families we place our volunteers with and we guarantee that you will be "feeling home" in no time. Depending on where your host family lives, your journey to the school can be 5 to 40 minutes walk.

The worldpackers can sleep at the host families or at the volunteers house. Both of them have private or shared rooms, its will depend on the volunteers choice (if they want to share a room or want their own private room).

We provide breakfast, lunch and dinner for volunteers who are staying at the volunteer house or at the host families. For this, we ask for a small contribution of $10 (dollars) per day to help to cover some of the expenses including accommodation and meals at the host families.


Rules

Along teaching English, volunteers in primary schools can implement other activities into the daily timetable to engage the young minds in creative ways through role-playing, arts and crafts or taking part in stimulating learning games.

In secondary schools, in addition to improving the standard of spoken and written English, the focus for the pupils aged between 13 and 17, is to deepen their knowledge on subjects like mathematics, geography, history, science, computer skills, life skills and so on.
