The program

This wonderful project was created with the goal of helping to improve the English speaking abilities of children in Arusha and to help with other subjects and activities. English is an essential language in the area, and important for securing future employment. An ability to speak English is hugely beneficial to youth, allowing them to pursue further education opportunities and to seek employment where English is an advantage, such as the tourism sector, important in this area with large numbers of tourists. Working as a volunteer teacher means you can help many low income children learn a tool that is vital to their future success. Love Volunteers place participants in multiple schools around Arusha at both a nursery and primary school level. These are some of the poorest schools in Arusha, often situated along the outskirts of town and are extremely underfunded and understaffed. Volunteers are greatly appreciated and make a huge difference to children’s learning. 

Goals of this Project:

  • Provide English language skills to children in impoverished Tanzania
  • Teach and interact with marginalized children in Africa
  • Improve the future prospects of some of Tanzania’s most impoverished children, and help them to break the poverty cycle
  • Expose volunteers and children to different people and cultures

How you can help

Volunteers play an essential role in helping improve the education of the impoverished children of Arusha. Through the help of international volunteers, many of the most marginalised children in poverty-stricken Tanzania now have hope for a brighter future. Volunteers are desperately needed to help with teaching English and various other activities at nursery level and running English classes or teaching a subject of their interest – eg. sports, music, art, at primary level. There are few resources, and often no text books, so volunteers must be prepared to run lessons with only a blackboard – although the local staff will assist with teaching and lesson plans. There is a national curriculum that needs to be followed, however class structure and content does have some flexibility for ideas and different teaching techniques. Volunteers may also be asked to help maintain the school facilities or work on projects such as vegetable gardens, etc. Prior teaching experience is not essential but at primary level in particular, it is preferred and can be very advantageous.

Volunteers will contribute in a number of ways and can expect to undertake the following tasks:

  • Teaching English and other subjects to children attending the school
  • Assisting teachers and volunteers in classes
  • Teach subjects the volunteer has an interest in (i.e. sport, music, art)
  • Assist with maintaining the school facilities
  • Create games in English for the students and spend time playing with students 

Tagesablauf

A volunteer’s work day on this project will generally last between 4 and 6 hours and while we ask all volunteers to be flexible in this regard, a typical daily schedule is likely to go something like this:

7:00am Breakfast at the volunteer house

7:30am Walk or bus to your project site

8:45am Pre-start meeting with project supervisor

9:00am VOLUNTEERING DUTIES START

A tea break and lunch break will be fitted in during the day, but often the timing of breaks will change based on the needs of the local staff and number of volunteers on hand.

3:00pm VOLUNTEERING DUTIES END

3:15pm Debrief with project supervisor

3:30pm Walk or bus back to the accommodation

Evenings Volunteers are free to explore the local area, check out the multitude of local restaurants, bars and cafes, or relax with the other volunteers

Freizeitaktivitäten

Situated in northern Tanzania, Arusha is the capital of the Arusha Region and is surrounded by some of Africa’s most famous landscapes and national parks. Situated below Mount Meru on the eastern edge of the eastern branch of the Great Rift Valley, it has a mild climate and is close to Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Manyara, Olduvai Gorge, Tarangire National Park, and Mount Kilimanjaro, as well as having its own Arusha National Park on Mount Meru.

Arusha balances well the ‘city life’ with the ‘small town’ feel and that makes it even more attractive in the eyes of tourists and travelers from all parts of the world. The city is surrounded by farm estates growing coffee, wheat and maize. These farm estates are being maintained by the Arusha and Meru tribes since the 18th century. Arusha is commonly referred to as the safari capital of East Africa. This is because it is the main starting point for safaris into Tanzania. It is a vibrant town renowned for its streets filled with tourist vehicles, the Maasai warriors and the famous Central Market. Awesome!

Upon arrival into Kilimanjaro International Airport volunteers will be collected by a representative of the local project team and transported to their assigned accommodation where they will join a short welcome session. On Monday, volunteers attend the full orientation session where a representative from the local team will fill you in on local and regional customs, traveling, rules and recommendations, and of course, what to expect from your volunteering experience in Tanzania. You will be taken on a town tour where you can purchase a SIM card so you can access the internet during your placement (you will need to ensure you have had your phone unlocked before your arrival). This is a great opportunity to get to know your hosts, meet your fellow volunteers, ask any last questions you may have, and perhaps even start to make those safari trip plans...oh yeah!

Unterkunft

Safe and comfortable accommodation will be provided during your stay in Tanzania. Volunteers will be accommodated in a hostel that is run by our partner organization. The hostel includes shared rooms with either 2 or 4 people per room and a shared bathroom. There is wifi available at the hostel but remember it is unlikely to be as reliable as you are used to. As with most parts of Africa, laundry facilities are basic and most volunteers simply use the services of a local laundromat.

Schlafsaal Doppelzimmer Jugendherberge
Verpflegung

Volunteers are provided 2-3 meals per day at the hostel and depending on where they are working, lunch may need to be bought at a small cafe during the day. The meals provided are mostly vegetarian, local dishes. Conveniently, there is also a fridge and basic cooking facilities if volunteers would occasionally like to prepare their own meals. Easy!
