Yaapha works with pastoralist and nomad farmers, as well as other vulnerable groups in Tanzania. YAAPHA  needs database development volunteers to help with the general computer work at our office as we lack IT experts due to financial restraints.

Database development volunteers would be asked to develop and implement an electronic library for primary and secondary schools to use in the Maasai areas. The volunteers would be asked to create an electronic school study system.
