Art in Tanzania maintains compliance with The Children’s Agenda Tanzania program that includes Children and Women Rights focus. We also have the Art in Tanzania Rights team including our team members, private Tanzanian people as lawyers and other rights-oriented citizens, and participating interns and volunteers.

The practical work is advocacy, seminars, teaching, and visibility. Rights issues are always sensitive matters and teamwork and networking are important. The Children’s Agenda program coalition includes UNICEF, Save the Children, and others, and it is chaired by the Ministry of Community Work Gender and Children.

We are looking to hire multi-professional students and interns to support our work. We tailor posts according to the participant's focus and interests and skills.

Interns work in teams of international students and volunteer professionals. We encourage innovation in the program approach. Work hours are 6-8 hours per day, Monday thru Friday. The Children's Agenda is an ongoing program, and we can adjust start dates.

Fieldwork takes place in the schools and community groups. The program is guided by academic graduate team leaders.

Typical day

Common working hours are from AM 9 to PM 1630 but we may have seminars and meetings evening times and weekends as well. The nature of work is to follow the time the target groups are free.


The participant will develop human rights materials, study the present legislation and changes in the legislation. There are rights issues as LGTB rights that are sensitive in Africa and need to be adjourned accordingly. 

Much of the work is to advocate how to implement the present human rights laws. The public in common do not necessarily know their rights and we advocate the vulnerable group as women, children, and disabled people. You will use existing tool kits for seminars but you also develop them and create new ones.

Much time will be used for visibility as for example Facebook is a great tool to reach Tanzanian people. Art in Tanzania's Facebook page has 38k likes and we can deliver information to tens of thousands of Tanzanian people.

Free-time activities

During your free time, you can enjoy low-cost safaris to Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, and other National parks. You can join our groups climbing Mt Kilimanjaro and move on to relax at Zanzibar beaches. We have also a variety of one-day programs for short breaks as diving and snookering at the reefs, swimming with dolphins, rainforest trekking at Kilimanjaro, live African music, a variety of sports programs, craft making as batik making courses, and so on. You will enjoy your stay in Tanzania.

Accommodation

Our eco-compound in Madale village in Dar es Salaam area has dorms, single, double and family rooms. 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.
