FEid Tanzania Application form
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY THE FOLLOWING DETAILS BEFORE APPLYING
Tanzania is a prime example of what most people expect when they think about Africa. The endless wilderness of the national parks with a vast variety of wild animals in their natural surroundings, the exotic and colorful Maasai culture and mountaintops from where you feel like you could see the edges of the world. And although all these romantic ideas of endless landscapes and wild animals are true, there is so much more to experience and discover when you volunteer in Tanzania.
Here are our current projects that we are running:
1. Environment Conservation awareness and Natural Resource Management.
In Tanzania: More than three quarters of Tanzania’s population rely on crop growth and seasonal rainfall to survive. Agriculture accounts for a quarter of the Tanzanian economy, and it is these farmer who suffer the real, dangerous consequences of environmental degradation. Adverse impacts of climate change are already affecting livelihoods and the economy. Recent severe droughts dramatically highlighted the food insecurity, water scarcity and power supply issues that the country faces. FEid Tanzania focus on raising awareness of the importance of protecting the environment, working with communities to find ways to develop in a sustainable way
Work together with the organization's project officer to develop and implement programs, lectures and seminars geared at raising awareness on environmental conservation issues and natural resource management. These sessions and activities would take place in Arusha Region in Tanzania mainland including visits to village communities and schools.
Each presentation is targeted at the conservation issues at that particular location. Presentations at different sites are both in theory and practice (whenever possible). For example, schools may require school ground clean-ups, tree planting tasks in the school yards,
Village visit and Community Presentations
Volunteers may be asked to visit rural villages, (with staff members of the organization) especially the villages near park reserves and catchment areas and discuss environmental awareness issues and conduct some natural resource management activities lie Planting trees, constructing rocket stoves and tippy-taps that are pertinent to that location with the people and perhaps some possible approaches to solutions in the problem areas
2. School, Water and sanitation
Every year two million people die in the world because of unsafe water, sanitation and hygiene. Children and young people living in rural communities are particularly affected. In Tanzania: Less than half the population have access to safe drinking water and as little as 16% have access to adequate sanitation facilities. Awareness of the importance of even simple hygiene practices is limited.
School children are particularly exposed to the effects of unsafe water, hygiene and sanitation, with 84% of schools lacking functional hand washing facilities and only 1% providing their pupils with soap. FEid Tanzania focuses on working in rural, harder to reach communities where the level of need is more pronounced. Our programs reflect the fact that women, girls and young people are dis proportionally affected, as they carry out most of the unpaid labour associated with WASH in households and communities. This has a huge impact on their health, education and ability to earn money. A key focus of our work will be with schools and their communities.
As a volunteer take part in
1. Construction of water gutters where by kids spend much time fetching water instead of spending that time at school studying, hence it leads to poor performance and results after their national exams
2. Constructing girls toilet to give them good environment (Privacy) during their menstrual time, where by many girls stop going to school during that time due to the reason there is no place where they can change or have privacy once they get into menstrual time, with the reason only few toilets are available or no toilets at all, or sharing toilets for both girls and boys. Due to this reason any girls attendance drop and their results are poor in national exams hence this become strong reason for their parents to force them into marriages.
3. Helping local communities to build hand washing stations by using their local ways such as tippy taps. 4. Teaching people about good health practices and encourage the use of local rocket stoves within the rural villages for the environment conservation activities.
Our general social Impact
FEid Tanzania work to create an environment through our well established projects which values and supports participation regardless of background or gender: where poverty and education levels won’t hold young people back; where culture and traditions are celebrated but not limiting.
As Non-government organization we work to facilitate these goals be attained through the power of volunteerism. Young people in Tanzania want their voices to be heard. They aspire to be involved in decision making processes and to contribute to the socioeconomic development of their country. They have the commitment, creativity, and passion to make real change. But they often lack the skills, knowledge and opportunities this requires. These issues are particularly difficult for young women and rural youth to overcome
