Our camp site is 10km from Iringa in the Southern Highlands of Tanzania. is known for its beautiful setting and home to the Iringa Swahili School. The camp site supports local village members with employment, but would like to extend its work in accommodating volunteers to set up groups for high risk members of the village e.g lunch clubs for pregnant women, activities for disabled children, employment opportunities for single parents.
Volunteers will be asked to take one English lesson with the camp staff in return for free swahili classes. Accommodation is in a 2 bed Banda with hot water showers and western toilets. Staff are supplied with basic African meals and there are facilities to cook your own meals. There is also the opportunity to work on a sister project based in Iringa Town, working at a local Secondary School running art activities , this has its own accommodation . Most volunteers combine the two projectsWe prefer volunteers for a minimum of 3 weeks-3 months- check with your country requirements regarding volunteers visa, for European members the Tanzanian Volunteer visa fee is 200$ for 90 days
