Sport brings people together and helps build strong communities. Volunteers will work with the organization in all areas of training, from setting up drills and fitness sessions to coaching sports teams. This project is a great opportunity for you to improve your skills and abilities while helping local children develop their talents. A local coach will support you when needed. Most of the time you will be training on the beach.

Your tasks:
As a volunteer, you will support both the sports lessons at a local school and take over training sessions in the afternoon. In the afternoon, the training sessions on the open soccer pitch are within walking distance of your accommodation. Here you have the opportunity to prepare and lead the lessons independently.

All programs can be booked with friends. If you would like to book a program as a group, we recommend that you enquire in advance. Each person must book the project individually.

Ideal for all programs are at least three months in advance. In principle it is also possible for us to place short-term applicants (volunteering and language study travel) in Tanzania.

Tanzania is a safe country and the people are very friendly and warmhearted. In big cities, as in every big city in the world, there is petty crime. When travelling, the following things should be taken into account: always keep an eye on valuables, always keep your hand luggage on your lap in buses, and at night you should not travel by bus or withdraw money from ATMs. Up-to-date information on the situation can be found at the Embassy or Foreign Office.

Please note that in Tanzania all electronic devices can only be used with an adapter. They are available in many electronics stores.

In principle, no language course is mandatory in advance. However, depending on the volunteering program, you can join some classes after your program. Your host is happy to support you with all.

Depending on the program, we work with host families in the vicinity or there are volunteer houses at the project site.

For all programs you have to be covered by foreign health insurance. We will be happy to help you find a suitable insurance policy.

During the language school and in the volunteering projects, you will always have a direct contact person to help you with any problems. Of course you can also always contact us.
