Zanzibar Island is part of a beautiful tropical archipelago

Zanzibar Island is part of a beautiful tropical archipelago of islands and its capital, Zanzibar Town (known to many merely as Stone Town), is a fascinating place, with an intriguing blend of Indian, Arab, and African influences. From this project you are also within easy access to Tanzania's mainland and spectacular African safari opportunities.

Jambiani Village, where you will spend most of your time as a volunteer, is located on the southern part of Zanzibar’s beautiful and quiet east coast. About an hour’s drive from Stone Town, Jambiani is a long village stretched along the coastline, with endless white-sand beaches. Here you will find a community operating at a leisurely pace amidst the sunny, tropical climate.

Our mission for this project is to see the strong enhancement of local education and skills training as well as literacy, and our dedicated project team look forward to welcoming you to work alongside them.

Volunteer involvement in local Pre-schools

There are 4 pre-schools in Jambiani that we work with. 

  • Teaching English to children, teachers and local adults (This is where a TEFL qualification comes in handy, although it isn't an absolute must).
  • Singing and dancing with children in English and local languages.
  • Developing the children’s creative skills through crafts such as painting, drawing and colouring.
  • Playing developmental games with the children.
  • General upkeep and development of the school to keep it an inspiring and stimulating environment in which to learn.

Volunteer Involvement in Primary and Secondary schools

Most village schools have too many pupils to accommodate at one time, and with shortages of staff and facilities, this means that often two school sessions are run per day. You will find that most of the schools have meagre and ill-equipped facilities, but a wealth of children with a desire to learn. As a volunteer, you will help to provide children with a better education, especially by aiding them in English language development.
