PROJECT DETAILS:

Located in the northern highlands of Tanzania, beneath the twin peaks of Mt. Meru and Mount Kilimanjaro, Arusha is the safari capital of the country. Guests embarking on the popular northern safari circuit all stop in the ‘Geneva of Africa’ to prepare for their journeys into the African bush.

From is two-lane streets, the dramatic crater of Mt. Meru stands over the town like a majestic sentinel, it’s crater strewn with thick clouds, it’s slopes dark with verdant forest. Arusha’s ideal location near the major national parks and it’s highland setting make it a peaceful idyll of relaxation before the start of an exciting journey.

Built by the Germans as a centre of colonial administration administration in the early 20th century, Arusha was a sleepy town with a garrison stationed at the old boma and a few shops around a grassy roundabout. From its backwater status amidst the farmlands and plantations of northern Tanzania, today Arusha is one of the country’s most prosperous towns.

Arusha medical teams are in  need of assistance of international volunteers and usually skilled professionals are encouraged to apply but there are also spots available for general assistants with no medical background. This medical volunteer placement can be an eye opening experience but also extremely rewarding when you get to see the difference you make on the ground.

Villages Health Support Organization offers safe, responsible travel experiences, exceptional training and career development opportunities, and we facilitate the ability to make a real difference. Villages Health Support Organization has been running meaningful travel opportunities for many years and has placed hundreds of people in developmental projects across Tanzania.

Volunteers without medical experience also play an important role in assisting in the local community clinics, doing office work and teaching HIV/AIDS awareness in schools.
