Come and volunteer with Kilimanjaro Childlight Foundation (KCF) and have an unforgettable experience, while making a difference in the lives of vulnerable children in Tanzania! We welcome volunteers to assist with our community outreach, education, health and renovation projects. Come and experience traditional Tanzanian life, immerse yourself in the culture and gain an insight into the problems facing people living in poverty.

You will have the chance to explore one of Tanzania’s most beautiful regions on your time off: catch a glimpse of the big five on an unforgettable safari in the Serengeti, take a day trip to our nearby hot springs and waterfalls or hike the highest mountain in Africa, Mount Kilimanjaro.

We offer a number of volunteer opportunities and programs that can also be tailored to suit the volunteer’s skills and expectations:

  • Volunteer as a teacher in a local school or orphanage and invest in a child’s future. Your caring input will be a great help and much appreciated as schools are often under staffed and lack resources.
  • Help improve health standards for vulnerable children. Provide awareness on improved hygiene and sanitation practices and teach about malaria and HIV/AIDS prevention. Visit sick children in hospitals and offer support.
  • Partake in our community outreach projects and help us offer care and support to children whose families live in extreme poverty. Our community projects assist vulnerable families with food, clothing, educational resources and healthcare.
  • Improve the living and learning conditions of disadvantaged children and help us rebuild and renovate schools, houses, and orphanages through our Future Light Projects. Click here for more details.
