On this volunteer program you will spend two weeks working on a variety of projects aimed at improving education quality in and around Arusha. You will be challenged to step out of your comfort zone and think creatively as you volunteer to help local children and their families have a brighter future.


what you'll be doing

Working work in one of our partner schools to deliver a range of workshops that supplement the national curriculum, you could be running sessions that focus on conversational English, life skills, the environment, creative arts and sports! Our in-country team has worked closely with local partners to determine the areas in which local children’s education can be enhanced, and we encourage our volunteers to be creative and deliver fun workshops that will both engage the children and allow them to learn hands-on.

You will also have the chance to work on a renovation project at one of our partner schools 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!


weekly structure

Following an induction and orientation when you arrive, your project days will be Monday-Friday with the weekend free to travel and explore. We recommend heading into the hustle and bustle of Arusha city or disconnecting from the outside world and visiting a traditional Maasai community!


Extend your trip and experience a traditional african safari!

After your Challenge you can join our optional extension trip 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.
