My organisation teaches (currently 24) kids from three to six years. These kids come from poor families, struggling single parents and local orphanages and have a place to stay before and after school. We provide free education in our preschool and we provide them with breakfast (porridge and tea). After finishing our preschool, we send them to the government school and pay for their school expenses (food, school-uniform, exercise books, bags and shoes). Our volunteers assist in the classroom (teaching English as well as mathematics in English) and spend time with the kids outside as well as working in the kitchen. You will stay at a room we provide for you at our school building. As we only have one room for volunteers to spare, we can only host one volunteer or a couple (in our shared room) at a time. An ideal volunteer for us has prior experience with teaching kids from age 3-6 (but not necessarily). To work for us a volunteer visa is required that can be obtained in Tanzania or with a Tanzanian embassy in your home country. The cost of that visa is US$250
