Volunteering in Tanzania

Welcome to Tanzania, a fascinating and friendly place to live and work, and where we at VSO have been active since 1961.

This is a geographically massive and diverse country with potential to match, but one facing many challenges.

Ranked #151 on the Human Development Index, more than a third of households here get by on less than $1 a day. Maternal and neonatal mortality rates are high, and only around four in ten children finish their secondary education.

Could you be part of bringing positive change to Tanzania?

With more than 50 years’ experience supporting volunteers you’ll be in good hands. We’ll do all we can to help you settle and make the biggest possible difference.

All the best

Jean van Wetter
Country director
