Art in Tanzania: Children's Agenda Program

UNICEF Children Agenda

The Children's Agenda and Rights program in Tanzania offers various internships and volunteering opportunities for Tanzanian participants.

Our Children's Agenda program needs a large number of volunteers and interns in sectors of:

  • Social Work (program planning, implementation, reporting, and  training)
  • Early Education (Teachers)
  • Health & Medical & HIV AIDS (all areas of the medical & health profession)
  • Social Media (Journalism, Photography, Filmmaking, Music, Sound design)
  • Program Management (Development Studies, NGO networking, and support)
  • Grant Writing (to assist with program funding)

Our program offers participants an excellent opportunity to learn how NGOs work in a developing country.

The Children's Agenda

The Children's Agenda is a coalition of organizations, government, and other partners who are committed to advocating for children's rights. The coalition also actively collaborates, develops, and implements a national advocacy strategy for child rights in Tanzania. The collaboration can also help to ensure the national reach and impact of the child advocacy agenda. Our work for children’s rights is often advocated through partnerships with governments, civil society organizations, development partners, the media, and in the private sector.
