NGO Management in Africa

Art in Tanzania is a self-sustainable non-profit charity NGO in Tanzania. We have performed community-based development work and run self-sustainable operations since 1996. Our community-based programs are focused on empowering the local communities and individual people. You experience the daily life and culture in Tanzania while also having the opportunity to witness the growth of one of the fastest-growing African economies.   Students will participate and develop the daily operations of the NGO. We commonly have 15-40 students from different parts of the world, from over 400 universities we co-operate with and represent a variety of professions. All this needs to be managed, including personal weekly plans and reports of each student, making budgets and accounts, developing ongoing community programs, and planning new approaches.
