Tanzania Highlights


GIVE’s volunteer program in Tanzania will take you to Arusha, Dar Es Salaam, Zanzibar Island and even on an epic two-day safari in Serengeti National Park. Volunteering in Tanzania with GIVE means you’ll work side by side with locals to build the community’s first primary school; a joint venture between GIVE and the Zanzibar government that is already providing more than 140 children with access to primary education.  You’ll also have the opportunity to teach English to children, teens and adults in this same school. Through your volunteer work you’ll also support the Tengeru Women’s Co-op and build chicken coops that will enable these hardworking women to provide their families with a steady source of food and income.


After you volunteer in Tanzania with GIVE it’s time for an adventure. From swimming with wild dolphins in the Indian Ocean, snorkeling amongst vibrant coral reefs with more than 600 species of fish, and sailing over crystal clear waters towards the white sands of Mnemba Island, you’ll never forget your time in this tropical oasis. Your Tanzania volunteer trip culminates with a 2-day safari in the wild savannahs of Tanzania, at the base of Mount Kilimanjaro. Hop into your safari truck and look out for lions, elephants, giraffes, leopards, zebras, cheetahs, hippos and so much more. Apply, become a Tanzania volunteer, be part of the roots of change and join the GIVE family!

“Tanzania was unbelievable. It has opened my eyes to the larger world around me and showed me how to help – abroad and at home.”
