an individual approach, matching you to an opportunity tailored to your

Maybe you can’t decide between our destinations of Arusha,Dar es salaam and Zanzibar , or between two areas of interest, or maybe your dates and availability are still unclear.
Don’t worry – all of this can be covered during our initial phone calls through sykpe or through whats app calls or chat or email. We’ll connect you to the person on our team best suited to discuss the program you’re interested in, and ask you to send us your resume/CV.

You’ll also get a better understanding of exactly what our program has to offer, specifically related to your interests, skills and goals.

work or volunteer experience) OR Complete the application form as fully as possible. While it is useful for us to have your passport number and referee details they are not immediately crucial to start processing your application.
