Career Break Teaching & Trekking in Tanzania

Saturday 18th September 2010

Volunteer in Tanzania and combine teaching with trekking for an unforgettable career break experience

Tanzania is home to three of Africa’s top five natural wonders; Mount Kilimanjaro, the Serengeti and Ngorongoro, which combine to make it the ultimate destination for a career break abroad. With MondoChallenge you can combine meaningful volunteer teaching programmes with challenging trekking experiences in a range of exciting locations.

Despite its natural beauty Tanzania is an incredibly poor nation, where standards of living and literacy levels are very low. One of its biggest problems is an under-funded education system, making it a setting in which volunteers teaching English abroad can make a real difference.

MondoChallenge places career break volunteers in rural and Maasai village schools where a lack of teachers and large class sizes mean that many children do not receive an adequate education. As a volunteer in Tanzania you can help local staff and use interactive teaching methods to engage students and improve standards of education.

As the perfect finale to your volunteer placement, why not take on the personal challenge of MondoChallenge’s range of adventure tours? For the truly adventurous, a Kilimanjaro trek offers the ultimate challenge, but Mount Meru is a worthy weekend alternative. For something completely different, our Crater Highlands trek gives you the opportunity to witness spectacular wildlife within the natural amphitheatre of Ngorongoro’s volcanic escarpment.
