Nestled in the shadow of Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa's most epic peak, you'll find the small town of Moshi. And this topographical giant is just one of the incredible wonders of nature that you'll find in the region. During your time as a volunteer in Tanzania with the Chagga community, the people of Moshi, you'll be working in a landscape full of waterfalls, coffee plantations, and banana fields.
Among the most prevalent issues in Tanzania are those presented by the lack of resources, residual effects of a colonial past, and the impact of HIV/AIDS. Only a little over half of children attend school, and high levels of infant and child mortality prevail. With Mount Kilimanjaro as a stunning backdrop for your volunteer work in Tanzania, you'll have a chance to work side by side with vulnerable people to build better, healthier futures.

When you assist with the growth and development of children in Kilimanjaro, you’ll support organizations who work to provide shelter, meals, and education to local disadvantaged children. When you work to support an organization providing care to local youth, you’re preparing children for a better future while helping their parents pursue work opportunities to provide for their families.
When you work to improve the quality of care of people with disabilities in Kilimanjaro, you’ll help to provide mothers with a safe and nurturing space for their children to spend their days. One of our partner organizations in Tanzania was actually started by a local teacher who experienced the stresses of having a child with disabilities firsthand, and saw the benefit of a supportive community of educators and nurturers. Your volunteer support will ensure that these children get the daily love and attention they deserve.
When you support those affected by HIV/AIDS in Kilimanjaro, you’ll have an opportunity to work with women, children, or the broader community. Our local partners strive to support those affected by HIV/AIDS, and with the support of our volunteers, they act as a source of education to combat transmission, raise awareness, and fight stigma.
"One-to-one tutoring works extremely well for our disadvantaged kids. All of the volunteers give a lot of attention and love to the kids. Lot's of our students come from large, rigid families that may not pay enough attention to them. When they come to school and CCS volunteers are here, they get individual attention."
"For people in our community, not understanding basic English is the same as being illiterate. CCS volunteers do an excellent job of practicing English with our students, giving them a greater chance of future success."
"When volunteers visit the families of children impacted by HIV/AIDS, the families feel a sense of relief and solidarity."
