Art in Tanzania is partnering with a consortium of NGOs and private sector actors to evaluate and produce solutions to the combination of climate change and human rights issues in rural Africa.
Some 75% of Tanzanian people live in rural areas and their livelihood, which is based on agricultural income, will be seriously affected by climate change.
The most vulnerable groups such as women, youth, and people living with disabilities are most affected.
This program is a multi-professional student approach to evaluate the present situation, to consider future scenarios, and to develop solution models.
We use our social media pages for advocacy work and our Facebook pages have more than 50K followers.
Your volunteer program is being daily supervised by academic level team leaders. We monitor your work with a weekly plan and report system to secure you proceed well in your study program.
The outcome of your volunteer program is to learn to use and to get experience to implement your education in developing country conditions with limited capacitation. Also to better understand the opportunities in a fast-growing economy.
Volunteers work in teams of international students and volunteer professionals. We encourage innovation in the program approach. Work hours are 6-8 hours per day, Monday through Friday.
This is an ongoing program so we can adjust your start dates. We accept applications of all students and alumni. Your placement is tailored according to your background, experience, and interests to empower our daily work with the communities. Your program can be from 2 weeks up to 12 months. You can also conduct thesis and related tasks. The common daily tasks include practical fieldwork, planning, reporting, and visibility tasks.
There are no program fees. We charge USD 120 per week for accommodation with breakfast and dinner.
The start and end dates are flexible and can also accommodate other travel arrangements in Tanzania. International flights, student permits, accommodation, and meals are personal costs.
