About

You'll be based right on the beach in a vibrant fishing village on Zanzibar's east coast as you make a big impact, working to develop the skills of local community members.

Working alongside local teachers, you'll help improve the English language skills of young children and adults. These skills are vital to anyone wanting to be a part of the local tourism industry - the lifeblood of Zanzibar's economy.

You'll also work with local women's groups to help educate and empower them with basic skills to achieve greater independence, thereby lifting themselves and their families out of poverty.

Being based in Zanzibar, you'll be in the heart of a rich, yet fragile ecosystem which already attracts many travelers from around the globe, therefore many of the education initiatives are centered around protecting this environment for future generations and helping the local population understand how to utilize it sustainably for the benefit of their community.

Highlights
  • Live in shared volunteer accommodation, right on the beach
  • Be based within the community in which you'll be working
  • Make a lasting impact on the skills development of young children as you assist local English teachers
