The aim of the Childcare project in Tanzania is to provide assistance in childcare centers which need extra help as they are often under-funded and under-resourced. These centers cater to children from low-income families, providing them with education, interaction and food.
This project is well suited to caring individuals who want to assist in providing basic education for young children and offering support wherever your help is most needed.
Your tasks will predominantly focus on teaching the children basic English and Math, as well as assisting with the general running of the center and daily chores. This can include cooking, cleaning, farm work, caring for children and babies, and assisting with feeding programs.
You are welcome to bring along books, pencils, basic first aid supplies and musical instruments to help entertain the children and assist with activities. These supplies can generally be purchased in Tanzania, which Arusha Volunteer Experience recommends to support the local economy.
