Art in Tanzania uses social media outlets for program visibility and to advocate the Tanzanian public in common. This volunteer program is especially suitable for:
Wheel Chairs


  • Encounter the exotic African culture
  • Learn to work in a Developing country
  • Get good friends in an African village
  • Enjoy the Indian Ocean
  • Join the amazing safaris programs

Our community-based programs are to empower the local communities and individual people. Our interns experience being immersed in the daily life of Tanzania while also having the opportunity to witness the growth of one of the fastest growing economies in Africa.

Art in Tanzania is team lead for Children’s Agenda program Media Team in coalition with Tanzanian Government, UNICEF, Save the Children, SOS, PLAN, and others.

Media is used for our daily program visibility and marketing tasks. Commonly it is to give information about our work in the communities.

We highlight media in network development and constantly wish to develop tools to reach our target groups in universities and the private sector. Media is a powerful tool to work together.

Our media tools include arts, music, and film.  We offer an immersive experience for students who desire to use innovative and creative African media tools.

Our media is advocacy, visibility and marketing focused.

Work is tutored by Mr. Kari Korhonen and the Art in Tanzania Media Team.

Typical day

Media volunteers start their task AM 9 and work until PM 16.30. You will have a weekly plan for various tasks that is then reported at the end of the week to follow we can meet our tasks.

Common media tools are Facebook, Twitter, Blogs, Instagram, Linedln, Youtube and Pinterest. We produce content to all these media and we expand our networks with our target groups like universities and other NGOs.

The content production also includes Film. Our film team is highly professional Tanzanian team producing music videos, short documentation, music videos and film clips for social media use. If you are not familiar to use film in media content you can cooperate with the film sector volunteers so they assist your tasks. The same stands for photographing and photo editing.

We are developing "Youth Reporters" program as part of the Children's Agenda initiative. In Youth, Reporters program volunteers assist young people to develop social media content to talk about their personal positives and negatives. It is to learn what the young people think themselves not only to listen to what NGOs and other entities representing their hopes think about their needs.

Social media has been growing very popular in Tanzania and today even in the rural villages people have access to social media. Art in Tanzania Facebook page has 19k likes being very large follow-up society and we consider social media as the main tool to reach the people in common.
