Volunteer in Tanzania for three months and see for yourself how the local church and the local community are working together to bring incredible change.
You’ll be supporting the work of our partner, the African Inland Church Tanzania (AICT), who are busy planting and cultivating churches. AICT work through these churches to help local communities to understand their God-given potential and be able to use local resources to meet their needs and bring about change in their communities.
Through church planting, AICT are helping to bring clean water, agricultural training, and health services to rural communities. They’re running self-help groups with women and vulnerable children and organising pastors conferences.
The work is varied and inspirational and is bringing incredible change to communities across Northern Tanzania.
So, are you ready?
Three months in Tanzania will both challenge you personally and stretch your faith. You will experience how the local church is at the heart of tackling poverty and injustice and have the chance to show God’s love in practical ways as you visit and learn from inspirational communities.
Who are we looking for?
Individuals who are flexible and adaptable and would love the chance to spend three months living in Tanzania, working in a team, alongside other volunteers and AICT staff.
