Land of Kilimanjaro
Tanzania is home to some of the most alluring destinations in all of Africa, including Mount Kilimanjaro, Serengeti National Park, and the island of Zanzibar, known for its turquoise blue water and exotic spices. The country makes a dazzling impression even on the casual tourist, but visitors who take the time to become immersed in the culture find themselves rewarded for a lifetime with a unique understanding of this beautiful country. The Tanzanian people are open-hearted and welcoming, often in the face of tough challenges faced by their society. World Endeavors offers a variety of service opportunities in Tanzania, including health care, health education, orphanage assistance, teaching, and community development, with projects to fit any volunteer’s skill level and goals.
World Endeavors offers volunteer programs that connect participants with service opportunities at non-profit social welfare, human rights and environmental advocacy organizations in Tanzania. Volunteer programs are designed for participants who want to contribute their time, skills and effort to supporting local Tanzanian communities.
The World Endeavors Volunteer in Tanzania program is based in the city of Arusha, nestled in the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro.
Living in a very different place teaches you what you actually need as opposed to all the things you think you need but so many go without.
