Gender Equality Internship, Tanzania

Together with an established team, interns on this program are part of remarkable, award-winning development initiatives that seek to empower and uplift women and girls in an iconic part of Tanzania, in the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro. Working in partnership with this rural community, the internship includes the developing, monitoring and evaluating of programs that help women gain income generation skills, challenge the subject of female genital mutilation and ultimately help both young girls and women become changemakers in their community.

AS AN INTERN, YOU WILL:

  • Gain professional experience within the frame work of international development and specializing gender empowerment programs
  • Help plan and facilitate education workshops for vulnerable girls, providing a platform for discussion about health, female genital mutilation and family planning.
  • Join our women’s income generation project that has transformed many lives already
  • Use your strengths to develop new programs that provide support on education, health, prevention of early pregnancy, personal safety, sustainable living and growth in self-belief
  • Be supported by a Personal Development Coach and Academic Trainer to acquire and develop new skills
  • Be totally immersed in the Tanzanian community, getting a very special insight into the Maasai culture and their daily life.

Volunteer Reviews

“Being here has opened my mind to thinking in new ways and inspired my imagination. It’s such an empowering feeling to think that these projects could change the future of girls and women. The work is more rewarding than I thought possible. I feel like one of the biggest gifts is getting to see the girls and women grow throughout the time on project, and know that you were able to help shape some of their story.”

Alison Vorsatz, USA

“Throughout my time here, I have learned more than I could’ve ever imagined, I have met some of the most incredible people, and I have done an immense amount of self-reflection. Coming to Moshi has opened my eyes wider than they’ve ever before, thus changing my life for the better. I cannot thank African Impact enough for everything they’ve done for me and there are no words to be able to stress enough how much I recommend an experience like this to every individual.”

About the Destination

Mt Kilimanjaro is one of the most iconic attractions in the whole of Africa, the Continent’s highest peak and nestling at its base is the busy tourist town of Moshi; a bustling network of food markets and restaurants, where one can’t escape the ‘catchy’ Swahili music of the locals… and don’t forget the goats who will regularly stop the traffic!

As well as being in awe of the different colors, smells and sounds in Moshi, you can’t help but notice the incredible variety of cultures and specifically that of the Masai people, colorfully dressed in their traditional ‘Warrior’ clothing and brandishing some of the most impressive jewelry.

The Masai are gentle people who live very traditional lives and you will get the life-changing opportunity to spend time with these tribes, dancing, drumming, tasting their food and begin to understand the vibrant culture of these unique people.

Living just a short drive away from Moshi, you will spend your time volunteering in the rural village of Mdawi, in an exclusive fully furnished volunteer house with plenty of outdoor space to enjoy nights spent under the stars (and trust us, you’ve never seen so many!) and opportunities for you to interact with and bond with the local villagers.

As well as hosting some of the friendliest and welcoming people in Africa, you can’t come to Tanzania and not experience its other locals… the wildlife. With monkeys in the trees and lizards sunning themselves on the rocks in your garden, living here is a perfect balance between integrating with the Tanzanians and enjoying the spectacular nature the unforgettable country offers. Why not catch the Great Wildebeest Migration at the world-famous Serengeti Park? Or see herd after herd of wild elephants from a hot air balloon drifting along the plains?

If it’s even greater adventures you’re after, how about trekking up Kilimanjaro? We can assure you after volunteering in its awesome shadow it will definitely be on your mind!
