Summary

Art in Tanzania is developing children and youth sports programs in village level in Tanzania. The main focus is in youth football and girls sport activities. This program is also part of the Children’s Agenda approach where our coalition includes UNICEF and other large organizations.

Details

Tanzanian communities are lacking capacities to run children and youth sports programs. Commonly children make their football grounds themselves and play with makeshift balls. Organized Coaching is rare. 

Currently, Art in Tanzania is focused on developing youth football. We develop structures for village tournaments and select talented children for more advanced training. Tanzanian sports teachers are voluntarily assisting the program and our task is to develop a proper football education system. We are also developing girl’s teams and diversified coaching of other team sports.

Interns help to structure program, to train our Tanzanian coaches, advise about sports in schools, perform coaching activities with the local coaches, and organize tournaments.

Interns are working in a team of international and Tanzanian multi-professional intern teams. We encourage innovation in the program approach. Mr. Francis Hoti tutors this work.

We are looking to expand our field of international volunteering and internships to empower our work in Tanzania. This is an ongoing program and we can adjust the starting dates.

Typical day

Sports activities take place after school and working hours. Our sports program takes place mainly in the village we live so the distances are short.

Those attending the school sports hours teaching will more to the schools starting AM 9. We need to schedule the working upon the curriculums in the schools preferably combining 2 to 3 schools per day to get enough hours.

Then when kids come back home we run the village sports program where football is the main focus but we can also introduce other sports.
Commonly we run tournaments between different parts of the village for different ages teams and we also emphasize to keep girl's teams going on. It is very hectic as football is the most important thing for an African kid. 

All the above happens between PM 4 and PM 6.30 and then it comes dark.

Weekends we support the elder people weekend training/rehearsal activities that are aerobics, jogging and similar and at the same time we can perform health advocacy activities.

We highlight social media content to perform visibility for yours and our work but also to deliver health advocacy. Our Facebook has about 19,000 likes and it is a great tool to reach Tanzanian public in common.

As an eco-compound we use our own design composting dry toilets, we collect shower water and urine and use it as "grey water" for our large garden irrigation. 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.

We charge accommodation with breakfast and dinner only.
