BaseCamp Tanzania first started accepting volunteers in 2007. Since that time, we have built a network of placements that cover most placement categories. We have also run several large group projects assisting local schools and orphanages. In our health and hygienic training, Health and hygiene volunteers provide basic public health training on a wide range of topics including: sexual and reproductive health, water and sanitation, nutrition, malaria prevention and personal hygiene. At this type of placement volunteers would be responsible for educating people of all ages on the complications of HIV and promoting overall awareness of the illness. An HIV/AIDS Awareness volunteer may be asked to conduct outreach programs and teach classes educating people on the causes, effects, prevention and treatment of HIV/AIDS. In our Animal Care and Rehabilitation, Volunteers assist organizations with the care of animals in their facility, as well as help with the general maintenance of their facilities and the presentation of community education programs. In our Early Childhood Education, volunteers work with young children in an informal setting helping with learning fundamentals in day cares, orphanages and community centers. These placements are perfect for volunteers with an interest in working with children and helping them in their early development.
Volunteers in Tanzania are in high demand for social and educational organizations working with youth. There are also several nursing and medical placements looking for help and we are just beginning to develop some fantastic wildlife and conservation placements. One of the advantages of choosing a placement in Tanzania is that the language barrier here is fairly insignificant for the majority of our placements. Most people in the organizations with which we are working are able to comfortably communicate in English. As a result, volunteers have access to a wide range of placements without needing to first spend the time learning Swahili.
