Be part of the change you wish to see in the world as you assist the local teachers who provide a powerful environment for student learning in Zanzibar.

Teachers are the invaluable providers of the educational foundation that propels local children forward. Your own gain will be immeasurable, as you assist teachers in schools where the extra hands and efforts are very much needed to broaden the perspectives of the students who might otherwise have limited international exposure.
Enjoy an opportunity to assist local teachers and students in one of the most incredible places in the world! Zanzibar is more than just spices and beaches. It is an amazing combination of cultures and traditions that have come together and the young people of this archipelago have a lot to learn from you as well as a lot to offer!

We have strong relationships with various primary, and secondary schools throughout Zanzibar, most are outside of the city areas. These schools are in need of teaching support in a variety of areas including English, Math and Science.

You will be assisting local teachers through the use of songs and playing educational games. You may also lead the children through activities like arts and crafts, sports, drawing, coloring, writing and more!

Our teaching assistant program is generally meant to support the learning of children of ages between 5 to 14 years. The school is open from 8 AM in the morning up until 3PM in the afternoon. This program is designed for participants to engage with students four or more hours per day with breaks in between class sessions and sometimes there may be after school activities available as well. Lesson planning for the next day should also be done.

Please feel free to bring teaching materials such as games, coloured pencils, erasers, English language books, and even clothes and toys to donate. Those items would be welcomed! We recommend you also bring pictures or other small objects representing your country of origin, which you could also turn into an educational lesson that will really broaden the children’s world!

Zanzibar - Teaching Assistant

About Your Location

Zanzibar is an amazing destination that tempts you to explore it from end to end. It is a semi-autonomous region within the United Republic of Tanzania and it is comprised of two main islands, Unguja and Pemba, and a number of sparsely populated islets. After the 1964 revolution, Zanzibar joined with the then Tanganyika to form the United Republic of Tanzania. Zanzibar maintains its own government and is directly responsible for all non-union affairs, including health services.

Unguja Island covers an area of about 1,464 square kilometers and Pemba Island covers an area of about 864 square kilometers. The local people are a mixture of ethnic backgrounds. Islam is the dominant religion and practiced by most of Zanzibaris, although there are also followers of Christianity and other ethnic beliefs. Swahili is a local language used by people and is spoken extensively in Zanzibar. English is also spoken by many people.

What Makes a Good Volunteer?

Volunteers need to be flexible and keep an open mind concerning their placements as situations can arise beyond our control which could require you to be placed at a different project than the one you have initially chosen. We will of course always do our utmost to fulfill your initial wishes but do remember that where you are going is quite different from where you are coming and as such one should be prepared for things not always going according to plan.

Volunteering and intercultural travel share a common trait: the more you put into it, the more you get out of it. This program is designed for proactive individuals and groups that are prepared to adapt to the local environment and its current needs. Naturally, the scheduling and activities of our program are subject to change. Alterations in activities are mainly due to changes in local conditions, which we believe is part of what makes overseas programs the interesting adventure and incredible learning experience that they are.

How Long Should I Volunteer?

Our projects range from 1 week up to approx. 30 weeks. Projects have a specified minimum stay, then it’s up to you how long you can commit. In our experience the longer you stay the more you will gain, as your understanding of the project broadens and you take on more responsibilities. Every volunteer will be given a certificate of appreciation at the end of their stay as a symbol of volunteering stay.
