"Little by little, a little becomes a lot." Tanzanian Proverb

Volunteer in Tanzania

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.

CCS Volunteer Posts

Hear what the community is saying about CCS!

"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."
