Volunteering in Tanzania

Support community development in the shadow of majestic Mount Kilimanjaro

Volunteer in Tanzania with Projects Abroad, and become part of ongoing efforts to support local communities in the region. This is also a chance for you to experience life in East Africa while immersing yourself in the culture and traditions.


We have several different volunteer opportunities in Tanzania, so you’re sure to find something you’re passionate about. You can support early childhood education and teach English at a rural Maasai school, or help build classrooms at that same school. Or raise awareness about women’s rights, and empower local communities.


Our projects are based in Arusha. An ideal location to make a difference and experience local culture. We have dedicated staff who will be on-hand 24/7 to advise and support you.


Volunteering in Tanzania will give you a unique insight into the variety of cultures in this region. During your free time, you can visit local markets, buy Batik artworks, and learn about the Maasai tribe. Tanzania also has so much to offer in the way of nature and wildlife. With lions, rhino, and elephants, it’s the perfect destination for a safari.


Through all your activities, you’ll be working with Mount Kilimanjaro as your breathtaking backdrop!

Where we are based in Tanzania


Arusha is a city nestled at the foot of Mount Meru. It is home to over 400,000 people. With a mix of highrise buildings and less modern developments, volunteering here will give you an insight into many different aspects of life in Tanzania.

During your free time, you can enjoy the buzzing city centre. At local markets, you can buy souvenirs, like Batik artworks, or sample local cuisine. The nearby wildlife reserve gives you the chance to connect with nature during exciting safaris. You’ll even have the chance to learn more about the Maasai tribe while visiting a traditional Maasai village.

Airport pickup, flights and visas

When you arrive at your respective airport, a member of Projects Abroad staff will be there to meet you. You can find more detailed information on arrival airports, orientation, and visas on our Tanzania Arrival Procedures page.
