Women’s Education interns join a foundation in Tanzania that is dedicated to helping girls and young women achieve their potential and life goals. Interns contribute to community programs that provide at-risk women with increased access to housing, education, job training and mentoring, helping to improve their situations and outlook for the future.

This Women’s Education internship is perfect for interns looking to gain experience in mentoring and helping under-privileged women and girls to overcome their challenges and achieve their goals for the future. You’ll gain hands-on experience as a mentor and educator, facilitating school lessons and job training that can dramatically improve the outlook of girls from vulnerable backgrounds.
Interns join a semi-structured program that helps girls and women to create their own short and long term goals, toward their plans for the future. These goals may include ambitions to finish high school, enhance employability skills, and gain a job to generate income for themselves.
You’ll contribute through assisting with reading, writing and computer classes, homework tuition, general vocational skills, and also support the general operation of the foundation. This can involve community outreach, life counselling work, and working alongside the project director to provide one-on-one mentorship for women who are working to overcome various challenges.
You can also support a Leadership Academy for Girls, which provides focused mentorship for teenage girls within the community.
For all interns with an interest in developing skills as an educator, we also recommend an interactive Online TEFL Certification Course. The training offers tools and techniques over a 100-hour program. Upon completion, you’ll have earned experience in planning, designing, and adapting diverse language activities and materials. No previous teaching experience or training is required. You can sign up for the Online TEFL Certification Course anytime and you’ll pay the discounted Intern Abroad HQ rate.
Outside your internship, you’ll have the opportunity to discover for yourself why Tanzania is one of Africa’s most popular tourist destinations. The country is well-known for nature and adventure tourism, particularly its incredible safaris and wildlife reserves. People come from all over the world to visit Mount Kilimanjaro, Serengeti National Park, and the golden beaches of Zanzibar. Your in-country internship coordinator will assist you in advance to arrange day trips or longer excursions (such as multi-day safari adventures). If you’re planning your internship in Tanzania, don’t miss the opportunity to schedule an itinerary that incorporates these wonderful, unforgettable attractions.
