PROGRAMME OVERVIEW

Experience the very best Tanzania has to offer this summer! Volunteer on a range of projects aimed at improving education quality in a local community at the foothills of Mount Meru. You'll be challenged to step out of your comfort zone and think creatively as you're immersed in the incredible local culture.

HOW YOU CAN HELP

We believe that education is the key to ending the poverty cycle. As a community challenge volunteer you will be helping us drive forward our long-term education goals in our community. Volunteering at one of our partner schools, you will be designing and delivering hands-on workshops that supplement the rigid government curriculum and get children excited about going to school.

You could be focusing on:

  • Conversational English

  • STEM (science, technology, engineering, maths)

  • Creative Arts

  • Environmental Awareness

You will also have the chance to volunteer on a renovation project with the aim of creating a safer and more inspiring learning environment. You could be painting an educational mural, renovating a playground, creating a library, installing a hand-washing station and more!

Your volunteering days will be Monday-Friday with the weekends free to do your own travel. We recommend visiting the Maasai Markets and beautiful hot springs. 

EXTEND YOUR TRIP

After your programme you can join our optional extension trip for £699 and explore the wonders of the Serengeti. You'll visit both the Tarangire and Manyara national parks where you'll be able to see over 100 species of birdlife, tigers, cheetahs, elephants, zebras, giraffes and more! In the Ngorongoro Crater you'll get to go on a guided tour and be a bystander to the 30,000 animals of the Ngorongo Conservation Area. At the end of the trip you'll have time to explore the beautiful Arusha National Park while taking in the awesome views of Mt Kilimanjaro. 

Join Challenges Abroad to make an impact in Tanzania and become a global citizen.

It’s time to be part of something bigger.

Your journey starts here.

HOW TO JOIN

To join a challenge, all you need to do is sign up by clicking the 'book now' button and choose your payment option. Our partner charity, The FutureSense Foundation, have a fundraising support team who will be with you on your fundraising journey. However, we know fundraising isn't for everyone, so you can choose to either Fully Fundraise for your programme, or Flexi Fundraise. If you choose the Flexi Fundraising option, you will fundraise £1000 and pay the remaining programme fees in instalments. 

 

COVID- 19: GIVING YOU PEACE OF MIND

To deal with the uncertainty that comes with COVID-19, we have introduced the following guarantees so you can confidently book your volunteer programme today.

COVID-19 REASSURANCE

Although we are confident that programmes will go ahead as planned, if your programme is affected by Covid-19 travel restrictions, your programme will be postponed to the following year, and your fundraising deadlines will be extended. 

DESTINATION FLEXIBILITY

We are continuously monitoring the advice of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) and speaking with our teams on the ground to ensure we are fully aware of all on-going situations. If your destination is affected by coronavirus travel restrictions, you will be able to move your programme to one of our other destinations.

ADDITIONAL HEALTH AND SAFETY MEASURES

Our volunteer's health and safety whilst overseas is our biggest priority. We are putting in place additional measures to enhance health and safety practices when travel resumes. Some of these measures include increased cleaning at our accommodation, reducing the number of volunteers sharing bathroom facilities, mandatory hand-washing before meals and an in-depth review of all in-country risk management processes.
