Project Highlights:

Due to extreme poverty and lack of funds the education system in the country is suffering and is the root cause of most of social evils. Lack of qualified and skilled teachers make the situation even worse. GWC through its volunteers will try to bring in qualitative changes in the system in whatever little possible ways. The volunteers will create awareness among parents on sending their children to school. The volunteers will teach children using fun filled activities including drama, play and games so that children learn in good spirits. Due to non availability of English speaking teachers the quality has been missing, hence the volunteers will offer to teach English and other English medium subjects in the school. Volunteers may also take a break from charity and visit some nearby attractions including the beautiful green landscapes to have some relaxing fun moments. Join hands with GWC and make education available to every single child. Let us restore childhood back to these children.

IMPORTANT:

Typically you are expected to work for about 4 to 6 hours a day; however if you wish to put in more working hours in the interest of needy you are welcome. A typical working day begins after breakfast at 8:30 am till 11 am and after lunch at 1:30 pm to 3:30pm. It is highly recommended that you work with other project closely to adjust better and maximize the impact.

Note:

  • Above is just a suggested, sample itinerary and might be changed by the country coordinator if and when required. However, you will receive the final work camp itinerary upon your arrival in the host country. The program coordinator will also provide you day-to-day work schedule before the work camp starts.
  • If any participant needs to reschedule their journey due to any unavoidable circumstances please do keep GWC informed. We will try to do the best suited arrangements.

Food and Accommodation:

GWS partner organizations at Tanzania will arrange and manage your accommodation, food and supervision while you work at the project. During the work camp, your accommodation and food would be made accessible in with a host family, in a project hostel, in a dormitory or in a Home base. You’ll be served 3 (Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner) meals a day including local delicacies mostly prepared by volunteers with local help. Although a beautiful, warm and friendly place, you should not expect luxurious treatment or accommodations because we ideally want you to feel and experience the real local Tanzanian culture and lifestyle closely.
