Volunteer in Tanzania, beautiful Tanzania boasts the highest mountain on the continent, the exotic spice islands of historical Zanzibar, and the famous Serengeti National Park. In this country, the Great Rift Valley gives rise to unique geological formations, its endless plains stage one of the greatest spectacles of animal behavior. Volunteer in Tanzania is the perfect way to explore this great country having hundreds of different ethnic groups and cultures, from the red-clad herders of the Masai tribes on the Serengeti plains to the modestly veiled women of Zanzibar 's Islamic Stone Town. Our Tanzania program invites you to work for poor kids, communities, and women's groups and enrich your volunteer abroad experience.

- Phase One: Language and Cultural Immersion. In Tanzania, we offer one week of language and cultural orientation. However, you can choose to take the Orientation or go directly into a volunteer project. If you decided to participate in one week language and cultural immersion, your program begins with one-week of language classes, cultural immersion, and travel experiences in Dar es Salaam. The week-long language and cultural immersion program in Dar features Swahili language, exploration of local villages, and a visit of Dar Es Salaam and Bagomaya, two major Tanzanian tourist cities.

- Phase two: work in volunteer service projects. Volunteer Tanzania work projects and locations. Our Tanzania volunteer program presently supports local orphanages, women's groups, health center, local schools, and NGOs working for different social issues. Volunteer projects in Tanzania are available in Dar Es Salaam and Arusha, two vibrant cities of Tanzania. In our volunteer Tanzania program, you can use your skills, talents, and experiences for the benefit of kids and poor communities.
