Art in Tanzania Educational program is part of our Children’s Agenda approach implemented by a coalition including UNICEF, Save the Children and others.

We work in village nursery, primary and secondary schools but we also run adult vocational training where the focal point are the women. The program also includes classes for children living with disabilities.

Participants are specifically needed to cover subjects where the schools are weak.

Areas of development include English, arts and music, mathematics and sports teaching. Interns also advocate in subjects as HIV/AIDS, health and hygiene. We also highlight teacher-training activities.

Tools in the classrooms are scarce also the size of the classroom can be 40 students up. Energetic and innovative teachers are needed.

This is an ongoing program and we can adjust the starting dates. The working hours are 6-8 hours per day from Monday to Friday. 

Typical day

School open up AM so you leave the compound after breakfast about AM 8 earliest and some schools are just at walking distance.


You can select half-day education or full day education option. Those selecting half day option commonly have other tasks for the afternoons as reporting, planning, curriculum and senior development and similar tasks.

All participants are to attend visibility and social media advocacy work.

We have vocational educational tasks late afternoon as women group members, adult students and under school age children come to our compound to attend various education-oriented activities. Here you may try some other subjects as well as Art Therapy sessions, entrepreneurship training, handicrafts and so on.

Construction materials include bamboo, recycled bottles and similar. This compound is located in Madale village, so it is as a countryside place but a short distance from the city as well.
