Volunteer Teaching in Tanzania - Zanzibar

Trip Highlights

  • The English Teaching Project aims at educational development of underprivileged children in Zanzibar
  • English as a language yields high returns professionally in tourism dependant economy of Zanzibar thus assisting students helps better their future 
  • Volunteers at the project are placed in different primary and secondary schools in and around the region 
  • During weekends, volunteers can travel around in Tanzania and explore the region with fellow volunteers 


Volunteering as an English Teacher in Zanzibar will not only help you to shape the future of these kids, but it'll also sharpen your skills and abilities. The Teaching English Volunteer Program is a great opportunity for volunteers looking for international work experience in the education sector.

Under this project, volunteers are usually placed in different schools - nursery, primary or secondary, to teach basic English lessons to the local students. Zanzibar, being a part of Tanzania, isn't a much-developed region and derives most of its income from tourism. Hence, the knowledge of English is essential.

The schools, under this project, lack the basic infrastructure and inappropriate curriculum. Due to administrative issues like short staffing, proper education is not imparted to the students. All these schools are in need of good educators who can also take care of them and guide them for a better future. English and Maths are the two main subjects that need to be taught. The teachers themselves need help with English speaking and mostly converse in the local language. The classrooms are big and the facilities are extremely basic.

You can make a difference here by supporting the schools, the teachers and the principals, not only by offering assistance in teaching English but also by adding bigger goals to their lives. And this will help you to learn a lot about life as well!
