Why Volunteer in Tanzania?

Approximately 68 per cent of Tanzania’s 44.9 million citizens live below the poverty line of $1.25 a day. 32 per cent of the population are malnourished. The most prominent challenges Tanzania faces in poverty reduction are unsustainable harvesting of its natural resources, unchecked cultivation, climate change and water- source encroachment, according to the United Nations Development Program (UNDP).

Although Tanzania has made some progress towards reducing extreme hunger and malnutrition. Children in rural areas suffer substantially higher rates of malnutrition and chronic hunger, although urban-rural disparities have narrowed as regards both stunting and underweight. Low rural sector productivity arises mainly from inadequate infrastructure investment; limited access to farm inputs, extension services and credit; limited technology as well as trade and marketing support; and heavy dependence on rain-fed agriculture and natural resources.

The Tanzanian economy is heavily based on agriculture, which in 2013 accounted for 24.5 per cent of gross domestic product and accounted for half of the employed workforce. Tanzania’s economy relies on farming, but climate change has impacted their farming.

Go Volunteer Africa enables people from around the world to share their skills and expertise with needy communities of Tanzania. We facilitate volunteer placements in Tanzania for individual solo travelers and groups,  and we can secure the placement within two days of receiving your inquiry. Our Tanzania volunteer program will either utilize the skills you hold already or give you an opportunity to learn new skills.
