Teach in Tanzania with MondoChallenge and experience traditional tribal culture at Maasai village schools

Thursday 22nd October 2009

Tanzania is one of the most spectacular countries in Africa and the ideal location for a career break abroad. Yet despite its natural beauty, Tanzania is ravaged by poverty and disease, and the scarcity of resources often means that education suffers.

As a volunteer on a career break with MondoChallenge in Tanzania you can help to address these problems. MondoChallenge offers a range of rewarding career break programmes where volunteers can make a real difference by teaching English in Tanzania.

One of the most intriguing volunteer teaching placements is in Maasai villages, where career break volunteers can interact with a traditional tribal African community. This is a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in village culture and learn some Swahili, while helping local teachers who often take classes of up to 100 students!

When not in the classroom, volunteers teaching in Tanzania can help run after school clubs and tutor adults in the village. For those seeking an unforgettable career break experience, teaching Maasai warriors in the shadow of Mount Kilimanjaro ticks all the boxes!

For those travelling to teach in Tanzania, Mount Kilimanjaro provides the ultimate challenge at the end of your volunteer project. MondoChallenge has a range of treks, safaris and beach breaks to complete your career break in style!
