Experience Africa at its most real. Come and volunteer with Raleigh International in Tanzania. Although home to Mount Kilimanjaro, 12 national parks and, 13 nature reserves there is a lot more to this East African country than just its wildlife and stunning scenery. Most significantly its incredibly friendly people. You will live and work alongside them and it’s their lives you will be helping to change for the better.
What will I be doing?
By joining a Raleigh expedition to Tanzania, you will have the opportunity to take part in three extraordinary projects in different locations: community, environment and adventure.
Live alongside a remote Tanzanian community, this is your chance to become part of village life. As part of a team of volunteers from around the world, you will be working to improve the community members’ lives. You might be helping improve access to clean water or building sanitation facilities and running events to promote hygiene awareness. We work very closely with schools so there will be the chance to meet other young people in Tanzania.
You will also get the opportunity to join an exhilarating adventure trek, into the rarely explored Southern Highlands of Tanzania! You’ll learn camp-craft and survival skills, sleep under the stars and trek through stunning landscapes. Whilst on your trek, you will get the chance to visit the Ruaha national park, learn about conservation issues and see some of Tanzania’s incredible wildlife first hand.
On your environment project, your team will be focused on helping with reforestation. As well as planting tress themselves, you will also be working closely with local communities to raise awareness of this important issue. Don’t worry you needn’t be an expert in this area, we’ll support you every step of the way.
