Remote internships in social work and NGO support out of Tanzania involve helping African NGOs that work with vulnerable people from a wide range of backgrounds. Many people in Tanzania experience the challenges of poverty and face daily disadvantages as a result. As an intern with an NGO in Tanzania, your collaboration with the organizations that support these communities can benefit a large number of vulnerable people.
Inequality is rife in Tanzania, where there are approximately four million children under 14 who are not appropriately cared for. Many Tanzanian women face limited opportunities, and struggle for independence and self-reliance. Millions of others have similar daily struggles due to HIV, substance abuse, domestic violence or poverty.
On a virtual social work internship, you’ll have the chance to make a real difference in NGOs working with families, or in schools and community centers to provide health, education and support services to people who genuinely need help.
As a remote intern with NGOs in Tanzania, you can assist with report writing, case management, planning fundraising activities or helping with administrative tasks. You can assist NGOs to plan strategies for helping people in certain situations, and support their causes by developing their social media presence, coming up with unique and engaging content.
Interns in Tanzania can also assist with preparing educational material for counseling or workshops about education, health, nutrition, self esteem, human rights, basic business and financial skills, and help with after school support or leisure activities.
Social Work interns work under the supervision of local staff. You’ll have regular video conferences with the local team to help with planning and implementing strategies to assist vulnerable people. As such, interns will need to be available to speak with local representatives during daytime hours in Tanzania.
