There are few greater gifts than investing in someone’s future through education. Live the tropical island dream while teaching English, caring for children and sharing your skills. You may arrive as a stranger to Jambiani, but you will most definitely leave as a friend.

Cimg9384

There is a great need for quality education all over Africa, and Zanzibar is no different. Due to poverty, daily home duties and a lack of qualified teachers, students are often unable to achieve the most basic educational requirements for higher level education and career development. African Impact’s volunteer teaching project in the village of Jambiani supports the local nursery schools in providing free, structured, interactive and creative English and Maths classes as well as free English classes to adults which highly increases their employment prospects.

Currently English classes are attended by over 100 youth and adult students each day, at a variety of locations within Jambiani and at Jozani Forest. Free education is rare in Tanzania and Zanzibar, so much so that students travel from as far away as northern Tanzania to join the classes.

As a teaching volunteer in Jambiani you will also be involved in women’s and kid’s activity groups as well as working with local boys and girls sports training sessions. The participation from volunteers abroad has contributed to the remarkable growth of this project. Volunteer projects have also included providing water pipelines to two Primary Schools - allowing children to have clean running drinking water for the first time, raising money to feed the children porridge every morning, teaching Primary School teachers English and organizing swimming lessons for local children.

Teaching

Teaching

Volunteer work opportunities will not only involve you teaching children and students but also teachers and other community leaders. Five Nursery School classes in the morning and - 10 Adult English classes each afternoon requires a lot of energy and passion.

About Zanzibar
About zanzibar

When volunteering abroad there are few places more perfect than Zanzibar. The coastline offers clear, white sandy beaches with stunning coral reefs for unforgettable snorkeling experiences. The volunteer house, Grand Bungalows, is situated in the small village of Jambiani directly on the beach, with the bedrooms set back in the garden. The lounge area is used for lesson preparation, meal times and relaxation, and is a mere 5 feet from the sea. There is a lot of space to catch a sun-bathe or have some alone time too. You will mostly go to project locations by bicycle, which means the Nursery School children will meet you on the road and cheer you into class. The locals are warm, friendly people and the children will love to show you their homes.

There are a number of National Parks to visit as well as forest area with beautiful birdlife and indigenous monkeys. Zanzibar is also popular for its variety of spices. You can participate in spice tours & visit spice farms, owned for generations locally. The estuaries are perfect for canoeing around to see turtles, tropical bird life and watching another stunning African sunset. Volunteer work opportunities abound in both community and conservation matters. With delicious foods, tropical fruits, blue waters, endless adventures and a welcoming community – you cannot go wrong by participating in the volunteer work opportunities in Zanzibar.

 
 
 
Feedback from our volunteers
Pauline Convent, Belgian

I had the time of my life. I enjoyed every single second. It's a once in a lifetime opportunity and I am so glad I grabbed my chance. It also has a lot to do with the group we worked with. I'd never thought I'd make such good friends here. The atmosphere was great. Not a single conflict. It breaks my heart I have to leave this place.

 
 
 
Morgan McKay, UK

Great structured program with right intentions. I have been fortunate to gain real insight in African culture for the first time.

 
 
 
Hannah Cheater, UK

I have just got back from the best month of my life, and that is not an exaggeration! At first I was thinking of only spending 2 weeks in Jambiani, but I am SO glad I booked 4 weeks instead. 2 weeks would not have been enough and everyone who was there for that long wished they had longer. Jambiani is absolutely beautiful and everyone is SO friendly and SO genuine.

After a month of life literally ON the beach, you really get to know the people, (both the adults and the children) and the village as though it is home. It is so strange returning to the western world, I don't know what to do with myself. Not once did I feel unsafe, unhappy or bored, it was paradise and the trip of a lifetime.

I have had the time of my life and I cannot wait to go back! Thank you so much African Impact!

 
 
 
Andrea Valdivieso, Chile

I can't describe what it meant for me to volunteer for the project in Zanzibar. Volunteering in such a beautiful place also makes you want to stay or come back. I made friends, met wonderful people and the best of all, I was so immersed in what I did, I felt I was a part of the Jambiani Village Community, I felt like a local. WONDERFUL PROJECT, WONDERFUL PEOPLE!

 
 
 
Charlotte Miller, UK

I loved being on this project; the team are absolutely brilliant. Working with the children here has been amazing and something I could never have experienced without African Impact. I think I have made some friends here who I will stay in contact with for a very long time which is great. I pushed my limits a couple times and did things which made me proud. I will definitely be coming back!

 
 
 
Pippa Mistry-Norman, UK

I volunteered on this project for 2 weeks and have just got back. The work teaching adults and nursery school children is so rewarding. The island is beautiful and gives a really nice working environment. You won't meet more friendly people anywhere else, so I would really recommend anyone who is thinking of volunteering in Zanzibar to do it - but for 3 weeks at least, because a fortnight is just too short!!! Thank you African Impact!
