Jamso Trainee places its volunteers in preschools and elementary school. These are some of the poorest schools, often located on the outskirts of the city and are extremely underfunded and understaffed. Volunteers are highly valued and make a huge difference to children’s learning.

Your tasks:

The school is about a 15-minute walk from your hostel. It usually starts at 08.00 am. Depending on your personal wishes and interests you will support the daily work of the teachers wherever you are needed. This applies in particular to the subjects English, mathematics, history, geography, art, sport or biology. As some children need intensive individual support you can also do one-to-one lessons with these children. There is a prescribed curriculum in Tanzania, but your ideas and creativity will be gladly incorporated. Pre-school ends at 12.30 pm and elementary school at 3.00 pm.


We make sure that you can start your adventure abroad without any worries. Both we – your contact persons at Jamso Trainee – and our local supervisors are always there for you to support you in all matters.

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.
