The project

Like everything in Tanzania, the level of education someone can achieve usually depends on the parents’ income. Schools in Tanzania can not be compared to the ones in Europe or North America. Pre- and primary schools work differently than the ones in your home county, with frontal teaching and monotonous copying from the blackboard being the norm. However, after class there is also time to play with the children and do some recreational work.

The preschool and the primary school are in the same compound so that you can either choose one project or switch between them. In the preschool, 56 children are being taught by five teachers divided into a baby class, a middle class, and a preparatory class. In this primary school, more than 60 pupils are taught by ten teachers. The children are divided into six classes, reflecting a good ratio of teachers to students. You can step in wherever your help is needed and wherever you feel comfortable to support the teacher’s daily routine.

Please keep in mind, that schools in Tanzania are being run differently than in your home country. Things like corporal punishment and poorly equipped classrooms are normal. The language spoken in both is English, which all of the teachers speak fluently.


Your work

The school is located only ten minutes walking distance from the volunteer house. Usually work starts at 8am in the morning. You will support the teachers in the classes where they need you the most: teaching English, mathematics, history, geography, arts, sports, or biology as agreed with the head master. You will support the teachers during the lessons, making sure that the children listen and follow. Since some children need intense individual support, you can decide to do some one-on-one teaching. The preschool ends at 12:30pm and the primary school at 3pm, with 40 minutes lunch break in between. In the afternoon, you can play with the children, help them during tuition and homework, or help fix things in and around the school. If you are interested, you can receive Swahili lessons from some of the students. Furthermore, you can help prepare food for the students and beautify the school. Your ideas are welcome, and you can let your creativity run freely and be active wherever you wish. You choose if you will only work in the preschool, only in the primary school, or support both schools with your passion and knowledge.

Sul progetto

Viva Tanzania is a German-Tanzanian organization established in order to support meaningful and needy projects in Arusha, North Tanzania.

Incontra il tuo ospite

Viva Tanzania was established in the end of 2015 by Martin, Tanzanian and his wife Tizia, German. We are both passionate about intercultural encounters, tourism and nature. Tizia is a Cultural Anthropologist and Martin is a professional Tour Guide.

We want to assist people from all over the world and Tanzanians to learn from one another through intercultural exchange. By helping foreigners to find meaningful projects that need support we do not only want to enable them to gain experience in working and being with people from different origins but also broaden the horizonts of everyone. Our mission is to establish an environment in which intercultural encounter can take place. Our participants will be enabled to gain first hand experience in a totally different sourrounding from what they are knowing. We want to show them the diversity of people, cultures and lifestyles. On the other hand we want to support needy projects in Arusha, our hometown.

Our vision is to change the people's perception of Africa, Tanzania and its inhabitants through challenging and reducing stereotypes and racism. We believe that this can only be done through intercultural exchange like volunteering.

Tini is the founder and director of Viva Tanzania and a tour guide by profession. He loves nature and e.g. already climbed Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Meru. He wants to give the volunteers and interns a better understanding of the Tanzanian lifestyle through culture and nature. Another thing important to him is the intercultural exchange and the learning from each other. In his free time he likes to exercise.

He is responsible for the organization of projects, safaris, mountain climbing, tours, etc.. He is also the chef of the hostel and creates delicious Tanzanian and Western style meals.

Tizia is Tini’s wife and manageress of Viva Tanzania. She has a Bachelor in Cultural Anthropology and she wrote her Bachelor thesis about Maasai stereotypes in media and tourism. She loves her three dogs as well as the life in Tanzania. She is responsible for the website, the marketing and the communication before, while and after your stay. She already spent a year as a volunteer in Tanzania and did an internship in Arusha. So she definitely knows what’s important to make your time unforgettable. At the same time she is your contact person for all intercultural issues and problems.

Both are engaging themselves in post colonialism, images of Africa in the media and tourism as well as stereotypes. They are trying to make an effort towards international understanding, reduce global racism, and to show their guests that ”Africa”, or better to say Tanzania, are more than the stereotypes often portrayed in Europe and North America.
