Teach in Tanzania

Sandra volunteered as a teacher at the Children's Village at Mkuranga in Tanzania

Every year we have a small number of openings for skilled teachers and youth workers who journey to Tanzania for extended teaching and coaching assignments. These dedicated souls live amongst the kids in the Children’s Village, and spend three months to a year making a direct impact on the lives of orphaned Tanzanian children. To apply, send us your CV and a covering letter. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis.
