About Children of Tanzania

In the case of Tanzania, poverty is widespread and is overall a major vulnerability factor in preventing many children from accessing education, though free primary education has greatly increased school participation. A comparison of school attendance data from the 1996 and 2007 Demographic and Health Surveys revealed that, in both years, the proportion of children in the poorest households who were out of school was higher than those in the richest households (Lewin & Sabates, 2011).

Moreover, in 2007, children in the poorest households who did attend school were more likely to be overage than children from the middle and highest wealth quintiles. Over the past two decades, international agencies and policymakers have posited that due to the lack of parental care, orphans in sub-Saharan African countries face numerous disadvantages, especially in terms of educational access (UNICEF, 2006a).

Orphanages in Tanzania

However, in Tanzania, very few have found conclusive evidence that orphanhood alone is associated with lower educational access (Smiley, et al., 2012), a finding that is often explained by the existence of a strong extended family safety net as well as a plethora of services provided to orphans. A comparative study of 10 sub-Saharan countries, including Tanzania, found that orphans systematically have lower school participation than non-orphans (Case, Paxson, & Ableidinger, 2004).

Within the DHS 1999 Tanzania dataset, Case et al. (2004) found that after controlling for age and gender of the child between the ages of 6-14 years, orphans had 8.4 percentage points lower school enrollment than non-orphans. The study also found that all children living in households headed by non-parental relatives or non-relatives are less likely to attend school but orphans living in these households were worse off than non-orphans.

Project Area:

Arusha is a city in northeastern Tanzania and the regional capital of Arusha, located at the foot of the Mount Meru volcano. It is the gateway to the highest peak in Africa, Mount Kilimanjaro, approximately 100 kilometers northeast. To the west is the Serengeti National Park, home to wildlife such as lions, rhinos, giraffes, and leopards.

This is an ideal volunteer project in Tanzania for someone who adore child and has a positive impact on his life. Most of the children in this Volunteer in Tanzania orphanage program and many other orphanage are in the age group of 3 to 16, which is a very suspicious situation, so they often fail to meet even the most basic requirements. Not only does this program give you the opportunity to work with children, it also brings you closer to Tanzanian culture and way of life. We will work with local staff to separate the center and consider issues that continue to arise within the company.

Some kids and locals speak English, but you can also help them with some local languages ​​- you can learn Swahili. There is also plenty of free time to relax and enjoy the culture and food. There are so many things to do and places to visit in Tanzania.
