To improve your practical knowledge it is possible to do a internship in a Tanzanian school.
Volunteers are important for the school because they are valuable help and support for teachers and
students. By beeing involved in lessons you can gain important skills and experience in the area of
teaching and even leading a group. You can help with developing and preparing learners for life,
knowing that education is the key of life.

We would be particulary pleased if not only female but male volunteers would support the
pupils in sporting activities and contribute new ideas regarding exercise and fun. All students
have to sit still for a long time and are particulary gateful for sporting activities.
English, mathematic and sport teachers are most welcomed
Of course teachers, trainees and students of similar educational subjects are particulary
suitable for a voluntary project in the field of teaching but ist not a requirement
If you are teaching englisch on the site you should have good to very good english skills
It is important that you like to work with children, are patient and like to pass on knowledge
In Tanzania schools, it is required to be smartly dressed as a teacher. This means that women should wear at least knee-length skirts/dresses; pants are not appreciated. Men should wear long pants (suit pants) with a suit shirt. We at Africa Heart's Desire hope that by following these simple rules, you will treat the locals with the respect they deserve.
