Community Education Development in Africa

Art in Tanzania empowers educational programs in the village nurseries, primary and secondary schools as well as runs adult vocational training activity in Tanzania. All activities are assisted by international volunteers and interns. The Art in Tanzania Educational program is part of our Children’s Agenda approach implemented by a coalition including UNICEF and Save the Children, among others. The adult vocational training program's focal point is the women. The program also includes classes for children living with disabilities. Participants are specifically needed to cover subjects for which the schools’ abilities to provide education are weak. Areas of development include English, arts and music, mathematics, and physical education. Interns also raise awareness for subjects such as HIV/AIDS, health, and hygiene. Debate-based English training is a very popular subject. Tools in the classrooms are scarce and the number of pupils in the classroom can be over 40. Energetic and innovative educators are much needed.
