This is the third year in a row that we have organised volunteering opportunities for Cambridge students in Kenya and Tanzania. Read on to find out how you can get involved!
In Kenya, volunteers would work with Maji Mazuri, a charity that runs several projects in Nairobi. You could work in a preschool and nursery, with orphans, in a school, on a farm, on a life skills project, help with a micro-finance loans project, or volunteer at a sports and drama group for local teenagers.
In Tanzania, there is the opportunity to volunteer at Mvumi Secondary School, helping to teach lessons, run English conversation classes and organise extra-curricular activities. Check out the school’s website for more information about the school, and why volunteering there is both important and highly enjoyable. www.mvumischooltrust.co.uk
