Tanzania is a large country, and there are 6 official cities in Tanzania; Arusha, Dodoma, Tanga, Dar-es-salaam, Mwanza and Mbeya. Because most volunteer projects are centered around community work, you’ll most likely be volunteering in one of the major cities. Dar Es Salaam, the previous capital, Moshi, and Arusha are the main destinations. We are based in Arusha, but expand our prorgams through other partners which are present in other regions, and so we do our Programs in three Cities which are: Dar-es-salaam, Moshi and Arusha.
