The Ikirwa Pre & Primary School is an English-language private school affiliated boarding school, where children from pre-school (3 years) to 7th grade (about 14 years) are taught. Most of the students come from farming families and the Tanzanian middle class, 54 of the currently 165 children at the Ikirwa School come from very needy families and are supported by international school sponsors.

The school director Gasper Mbise wanted to ensure better education in his village and founded the school in 2013, which means that this project is still very young and still under construction.

Because this is an "English Medium School", the language of instruction is exclusively English (with the exception of the Swahili lessons). Therefore, volunteers can actively participate in all subjects and extra-curricular offerings. Here, the students learn all common subjects like maths, Swahili, English, history, science, art, sports, geography, biology and others.

Since the 2019 school year, classes 4 and 7 (and students from more remote areas) are staying at school overnight. These two classes complete National Exams at the end of the school year and special attention is given to them. 

The assignment at the Ikirwa School is a good place to be for teaching students, teachers and also school leavers who are seeking educational training - and, of course, those who would like to be socially involved in a school environment. You can support and assist the teachers and you are able to introduce some lessons yourself. The teachers will support you and welcome you warmly to their school.

Especially in exchange with volunteers, the teachers can also get new ideas for thought for their lessons. However, volunteers should also be aware that from the beginning students are primarily used to frontal lessons and memorization. Here, volunteers demand patience and assertiveness. Also, some teachers will initially be skeptical of new methods, while others will adopt them directly in their own lessons. The commitment is a valuable experience for both volunteers and teachers, and above all for the students, which adds to their own horizons.

Please note: The Ikirwa School is closed for school holidays for most of the months of April, August and December. Volunteers who are in Arusha for an extended period of time can use this time to travel / relax or, if they are interested, engage in alternative projects. Otherwise, volunteers may also become involved in the school during this time by teaching or preparing special projects, e.g. presentations, posters or Power Point presentation. These can then be used after the holidays by volunteers or teachers in the classroom. There is always something to do at Irkiwa School!

Journée Typique

Your day starts at the hostel around 7 am. The Ikirwa School is located in Ngulelo, a part of Arusha, which is located directly on the slopes of Mt. Meru. From the main road it is 8km on gravel roads, until you reach the picturesque school grounds. Fortunately, a school bus drives right along the main road near our volunteer house, which volunteers are allowed to use. The school calculates about 45,000 Tanzanian shillings per person per month.

Regular class time is 8:00 to 15:45 from Monday to Friday. Lunch can be taken by volunteers for a meal with the students in the school (approximately 3,500 Tanzanian shillings per person per day, which is approximately € 1.30). This includes a cup of porridge in the morning and a typical African lunch.

After a familiarization period, volunteers may also organize their own lessons, in consultation with the class teachers. Special help is needed in the various pre school classes, since only one teacher is responsible for each class. Here, the need for individual tutoring and support for the younger students is therefore particularly high.

Activités de Loisir

The project is based in Arusha, Tanzania. There are several free time activities volunteers can engage in. We organize Safaris, mountain climbs and shorter tours like hiking, horse riding, visit to a nearby massai village, trip to the hotsprings and waterfalls, coffee tours, etc. to the nearer surroundings at affordable rates. We always make sure, that all guides and staffs are being paid fair wages. At the same time there are lots of things you can do during your free time or at the weekends in Arusha itself. There are different markets like second hand market, spice markets or massai market, as well as typical african restaurants and bars. Furthermore the area you will live is very beautiful and you can either go to a lake and do canoeing or you can go to a lodge with a pool near to the hostel to relax for little money. Our other volunteers from the hostel will be happy to show you everything and if you join them at your free weekends!

Services de STEP Africa

The STEP Africa Program Fees are calculated as follows:

− A one time application fee which includes 2 way airport transfers, pre-departure support, preparation handbooks, orientation day and project support 
− Program fees to stay at the STEP Africa House (including breakfast and dinner from monday to friday), on-the-ground support and supervision by the STEP Africa Team (our office is in Tanzania!) and 24h emergency contact. 

Important Note: To keep it transparent we do not add any donation to our program fees (which are entirely used for your preparation, supervision and accommodation) but encourage you to raise some funds among your family and friends prior to your arrival or once you have arrived in Tanzania. Any small or big amount is highly appreciated and you are entirely free to decide on how you want to utilize your donation within the project. By doing so you will see how much of a difference donations can make and its a great feeling to see this first hand. We understand volunteering as a holistic approach of helping each other and learning from one another and while you will do amazing daily work as a volunteer we want you to also understand that no project can entirely survive if it wasn't for financial support as well.
