Where the Shiny Facade Crumbles

The economy of Tanzania has blossomed, and gold, tanzanite and diamonds are in the spotlight. Tourism and agriculture are important sources of income as well. However, this only benefits the major cities like Dar-Es-Salaam. The small farmers in rural areas still live off what they grow, since the per capita income is extremely low. They make up at least 80% of Tanzanians. Just as many people also have no way to medical care. Outside the big cities there are only a few scattered clinics and most of them have no trained doctors and lack proper equipment. Particularly communicable diseases such as malaria, tuberculosis and HIV are a huge problem for the population.

Reports from Tansania

    Program Information

    Medical Care of Tanzanians

    Malnutrition and lack of access to medical care are the causes of diseases such as malaria, typhoid, hepatitis A and HIV. Of the 33 million people infected worldwide, 1.2 million live in Tanzania. Volunteers are needed in understaffed hospitals. Various hospitals located either centrally or in the suburbs of Arusha, have too many patients and the staff is overwhelmed. Especially medical volunteers with previous experience are wanted, they will put their knowledge into practice and bring new ideas and experience with them.

    Support for the Nurseries and Children's Homes

    As part of the medical project, you can support local doctors and nurses in Ghana. Especially as a medical student is it important to gain a lot of practical experience outside university. In this project, not only you will benefit from your work but also the people and doctors in Ghana whom you are a welcome support!

    There are also opportunities for prospective physiotherapists in Ghana to deepen their expertise and help at the same time. In our physiotherapy program in Accra, you make an important contribution to the community and sports development in several communities in Accra.

    Teaching in Tanzania

    Especially for volunteers who want to teach English, here there are many options. Because the English language is the so-called "lingua franca" in Tanzania, it plays a central role in the future of the younger generations. In 2002, basic education for all was made available at no cost. At that time, the number of students increased by 100 percent. Therefore, most preschools and schools, now have a shortage of trained teachers. For most students, the school is not just a place to learn. Many children walk miles to school where they will get their only meal of the day. Teachers take on the role of a caregiver - caring for the health and welfare of the children. This is the case for a small school in Arusha. 50 children are taught here. Volunteer teachers can also teach in larger nursery and primary schools where up to 900 students receive basic education. In addition, orphans and children from poor families can receive an education in a well funded, innovative school for children with AIDS.
