(7)- Administration / Management training
With growth, we meet the challenges of more effective administration/management of our organization and its projects. We need our organizational structures and procedures to be revised, perhaps new policies to govern our activities to be implemented. The volunteer would help us structure the foundation of the programs and take part in, measure our impact. We welcome all kind of project management training.
(8) Grant and proposal writing.
As we are an NGO, it needs funding. Instead of personal fundraising, we want to focus on funding for projects that will eventually become sustainable. Therefore, we are in search of creative but professional grant and proposal writers, able to find the niches in our projects qualified for one-time big funding.
(9)Assisting in local hospitals, holding HIV/AIDS awareness talks, etc.
If you have an idea of which area you would like to volunteer in, even if it was not mentioned above, let us know and we will see if such an opportunity is available.
All we need and care about is to serve and help the community.
When & Who
What we Provide
You can choose to live in a volunteer house or with a family (host family). We have host homes with local community members that are willing and excited to host the volunteers from across the world, who have been approved by our local team in Tanzania. Volunteers can expect to share a bedroom with one other volunteer of the same gender, comprised of single beds or bunk beds. Bedding is provided. The homes have been risking assessed with a mosquito net, a lockable door and access to clean water, within a safe and secure environment.
In a host family, you will be assigned to your bedroom with a lock, You will not always have running water but there will be clean washing water to bath and shower in. You will be living in a host family house and become a member of that family, which gives you the opportunity to learn their culture, learn a new language, and virtually do everything with them. Host families are carefully selected and are very caring and friendly.
Living is comfortable and most homestays have electricity, running water and western bathrooms. It is important to note that there are often power outages and water shortages, and volunteers need to be prepared to have the occasional bucket shower or some time without power.
It is exciting to stay with a host family, providing you with a unique opportunity to learn about the Tanzanian way of life, meet local people, try local food, speak the local language and engage in local customs and traditions.
If you are living in a volunteers house, you will be sharing a room with other volunteers. The volunteer house often has up to 4 volunteers, so it can be quite fun as you get to know your roommates. The House contains rooms which have three/four single beds, showers and flush toilets.
Volunteers do not have to worry about sourcing their own food and will be provided with three local meals a day. Breakfast is served around 8 am and generally consists of chai (tea), toast, fruit and sometimes mandazi (African donuts). A typical lunch can include vegetables with rice, occasional meat and fruit and is served around 1 pm.
About a dinner, volunteers who will stay in our Volunteers house should have the ability to prepare himself/herself on a volunteers house or he/she can go to buy food from any place he/she likes For those who want to taste the foods most Tanzanian's eat each day.
With local families, Dinner is usually served around 8 pm and usually includes traditional food, such as ugali, chapati, mboga, alongside meat and vegetables.
For those who are keen to get involved in local life by visiting the local markets and learning to cook local food, volunteers will be accompanied to the market the first time so as to get their bearings and feel comfortable.
