Volunteer Work in Tanzania

NGOs (Non-Governmental Organizations) depend on self-financing, external donations and personal help locally or from far away. We have found many friends around the world, who either actively help us in our daily work at the Center, or who support us from afar.

For example, Mr. Fritz Uhl from Rothenburg o. d. Tauber has been supporting us for decades by donating sewing machines for our tailoring school graduates. These generous donations enable them to start their own tailor shops.

And last but not least, we have been happy to welcome the doctors and volunteers of the „Feuerkinder“ project at our Center us since 1998.

We are very thankful for your interest and support. We offer a limited amount of volunteer opportunities directly at our Center. Because of beaurocratic barriers (work and residence permits, Visa, immunizations, etc.), these missions must often be planned a good year in advance. For short stays, we are therefore happy to alternatively welcome you as a guest in our guest house.

For young volunteers, we recommend contacting the „Centrum Mission EineWelt“. You will find more information in German under www.mission-einewelt.de (Under Volunteer Activities).

If you are interested in giving long-distance support, we are happy to receive your offers and suggestions and thank you in advance for your interest. We are also thankful for financial or material aid – you will find more information about this option here.

Normally, the best way to reach us is by email – you will find the address here.
