ART IN TANZANIA (AIT) is a *non-governmental organization (NGO) registered in Tanzania, Zanzibar, and as indipendent entity in Finland. The organization launched in 2001 supporting local artists who did not have the resources to develop their talents.

Since then, the organization has grown and now runs more than 300 volunteer and internship placements in Tanzania including a record label called Mzuka Records, and the Fiesta Magazine, a yearly magazine that targets Tanzanian youth.

ART IN TANZANIA welcomes volunteers and interns to participate in community projects and also organizes adventure programs such as safaris, historical tours and climbs to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro! Alumni, volunteers, interns and their families are welcome to participate in our safari and tourism programs. When you book your trip through AIT, you will have the experience of a lifetime, all while providing support the local Tanzania community.

ART IN TANZANIA is part of the Children's Agenda Tanzania Program, and volunteers and interns are needed to assist us in the program management and implementation with the partners as UNICEF, Save the Children, SOS International among others.

AIT alumni include volunteers and interns from all over the world. Volunteer and intern projects are in the fields of Education (all levels), Social Work, Medical & Health practice, Social Media, Arts & Music, Sports, and HIV/AIDS Awareness.

EEO Statement 

*A non-governmental organization (NGO) is an organization that is not part of a government and was not founded by states. NGOs are usually non-profit organizations that gain a portion or all of funding from private sources. The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement are the world’s largest group of humanitarian NGOs.

Art in Tanzania gets all its funding from volunteers, interns, and private donations. Funding supports the organization’s long-term projects, which have included the building of the Bagamoyo Youth Centre, Mandela HIV/Aids Clinic and nursery, and primary schools in Maasai Land.
