Raleigh International needs volunteers aged 17-24 to help deliver our sustainable development programmes in remote communities around the world.
A Raleigh Expedition is a once in a lifetime experience. You’ll meet and collaborate with people from all over the world including local volunteers from Tanzania. You will get the opportunity to immerse yourself in another culture and develop new skills, whilst using your passion and positivity to drive sustainable change where it is really needed.
It won’t be easy. Our expeditions are tough! You will be challenged but we are here to support you from now until you complete your Raleigh programme and beyond.
- Immerse yourself in a remote Tanzanian community – learn about local life and customs.
- Work on meaningful community led projects, contributing to the Global Goals.
- Take part in an adrenaline-fuelled adventure trek. Challenge yourself, get muddy, see amazing scenery & wildlife and sleep under the stars.
- Make your CV stand out – develop key skills that will set you up for the future.
- Make genuine, lasting friendships and grow a network which covers the globe.
You’ll Iove Tanzania, a country of warm hearts and long handshakes. Home to the highest mountain in Africa and the largest concentration of wildlife per square kilometre in the world.
A 4, 7 or 10-week Expedition in Tanzania provides exposure to different people, new cultures, situations, and environments.
You will get the chance to take part in up to three projects, dependent on the length of your Expedition: Community, Environmental and Adventure.
A Raleigh expedition in Tanzania is a unique opportunity to help raise environmental awareness and tackle poverty, whilst experiencing real Tanzania. Volunteers live in a homestay with a local family which gives a unique insight to daily life for Tanzanians.
Your days will be spent working on a community led project, contributing to the Global Goals. We work closely with schools in rural Tanzania to help improve basic sanitation facilities. By building toilet and handwashing facilities, you’ll be able help improve attendance at schools, particularly for girls. You and the team will be working with our local partners and the community themselves to create lasting change together.
You will also get the opportunity to take part in an exhilarating adventure trek through rural Tanzania. You’ll learn camp-craft and survival skills, sleep under the stars and trek through stunning landscapes. Whilst on your trek, you will visit the Ruaha national park, learn about conservation issues and see some of Tanzania’s incredible wildlife first hand.
All our projects are driven by the needs of the communities we work in, and more than 70% of our income goes directly to the projects, so you can be sure that you’re having a lasting, positive impact.
