Program

  • ZANZIBAR - TANZANIA

The Teaching Volunteer program is one of our most popular projects in Zanzibar. As a teaching volunteer at CR HOPE Foundation’s school ‘Seeds of Light’, you will teach English, geography, basic mathematics, and more. Your role will be to engage students in active learning, develop their interpersonal skills, and help them succeed by following a carefully laid-out curriculum.

Dedicating your time, energy, and skills to our teaching volunteer program could be a great way to spend your gap year, career break, or extended vacation. It is also important to mention that neither a specific teaching experience nor a TEFL or TESOL certificate is required to apply for the position.

Your language abilities and enthusiasm are all that is needed to make a difference at our school, where conversational language skills are always in high demand. The impact you have on our students will become obvious as they start to develop their language abilities. Apart from that, you will also be a part of a much larger network of volunteers making a positive and ongoing contribution to the wider communities in Africa.

  • Teach English and other subjects or organize games and arts
  • Share your love and care with children
  • Share your culture and empower children
  • Paint educative murals
  • Provide support for extracurricular activities

Volunteers will be teaching 5 days a week having Saturday, Sunday, and Public Holidays off. Most of the pupils at our private school have a good command of English yet they may need to practice it further

All international flights land in Zanzibar City. If your flight takes you into Dar es Salaam rather than to Zanzibar, you can opt to take a ferry or flight to the island. 

After you have booked and confirmed your placement, please book your flights to arrive at Abeid Amani Karume International Airport in Zanzibar. A member of staff will meet you on arrival at Airport. This airport services numerous international carriers. Zanzibar has good connections to destinations throughout the Middle East, Europe, the Asia- Pacific region, USA and Africa. 

Orientation and placement will be done the next day. The volunteer guest house will be your base for volunteering while living in Zanzibar. 

By becoming our teaching volunteer, you will get involved in a complete range of teaching and development activities in Zanzibar. If you’re a native English speaker or if you already had some teaching experience, you will surely be a valuable resource in the classrooms.

Your English skills will allow you to teach proper pronunciation and language usage. The currently opened volunteer placements are for teaching children aged 4-7 years old.

During the first week, a local teacher will assist you to conduct classes and solve language barrier issues if any. When the children become familiar with you, you will then be able to run classes independently. As all private and public schools have worked-out curriculums, you can either follow the official Tanzanian curriculum or apply your own skills.

If you have any additional skills like teaching games, music, painting, singing, dancing, yoga, martial arts, etc., you are most welcome and encouraged to apply them in practice.

The application process is not complicated, and volunteers do not need to apply a long time in advance. CR HOPE Foundation gives you the support you need to take the hassle out of arranging your volunteering adventure in Zanzibar.

Our volunteer programs in Zanzibar give you the chance to experience a different culture whilst contributing towards a worthy teaching, community, conservation, or sports initiative.
