Support Vulnerable Children
in Moshi, Tanzania

Building and Fulfilling Children's Dreams

Free Volunteering Moshi, Kilimanjaro, Tanzania

Children's Aid Tanzania's volunteer opportunities are free to both the volunteer and project. You give your time, energy, expertise and love. That is all we ask of you, in fact we subsidise your stay with beneficial rates at Nyota Bed and Breakfast. Similarly as a Tanzanian NGO ourselves, we ensure the NGO's we sponsor have a genuine need and use for volunteers and that all funds and support go directly to the project. Children’s education, capacity building and support of local NGO's and directly helping the vulnerable families in the community is what the Children's Aid Tanzania NGO stands for.
