Build Homes for Teachers in Tanzania

Luxury volunteer vacation Tanzania

Build Homes for Teachers in Tanzania

On your luxury family volunteer vacation in Tanzania, you can help build accommodation for teachers near their school, so they can focus on teaching

About this volunteer project

We are passionate about bridging the gap between luxury travel and community upliftment, and curate meaningful programs which are grounded in our pillars of health, conservation and education.

In Tanzania, teachers are allocated to schools by the government. Often,

these allocations are based on the number of classrooms available at each

school, as opposed to the number of attending students. Due to this, teachers

are often placed in areas which are located away from their families and

homes.

As we continue to build classrooms for local children to get a good

education, we need to proportionately take care of the wellbeing

of their teachers. At present, teachers housing facilities are spread out

and do not offer enough room for the number of teachers assigned to each

school.

We want to ensure that as teachers are leaving their homes and families to go teach, they have a space of their own where they are taken care of too.

We know that these teachers are building futures for the next generation and

want them to feel supported, and make a community that is so special to us,

feel just as special for them.

Now, with the help of the generous contributions from our clients, we can do

 

just that!
