Allocations are a very important moment in our Team Leaders’ journeys as they finally find out who they will be paired with for their 10 week placement.

Together our Team Leader pairs, made up of one UK and one Tanzanian national, will work hand-in-hand to help deliver our impactful School WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene) or Community WASH projects.
