Work in a Tanzanian orphanage to help give disadvantaged, bright young children the care they need
Located on Africa's east coast between Kenya and Mozambique, Tanzania is an ethnically diverse country with over 120 different ethnic groups. Formed in 1964 following the union of Tanganyika and Zanzibar, Tanzania combines these names to symbolise a united republic.
Tanzania is well known for the natural beauty of it's landscape and boasts three of Africa's most famous lakes: Victoria in the north, Tanganyika in the west, and Nyasa in the south. Mount Kilimanjaro, possibly the most famous natural landmark in Africa and the highest point on the continent, is located in the north.
Tanzania remains one of the poorest countries in the world, with many of it's people living below the World Bank poverty line. However, unlike many African countries, whose potential wealth contrasts with their actual poverty, Tanzania has few exportable minerals and has had to progress from a primitive agricultural system.
As a result of these financial difficulties, infrastructure in Tanzania – both physical and organisational – can be poor, and institutions such as schools, care homes and hospitals can lack the funding they need to provide adequate resources and staff. This is where you, the volunteer, can come in.
