We are looking for open-minded, passionate, and hardworking individuals to join our Art in Tanzania Human Rights internship. The program focuses on protecting and advocating children’s, women’s, and disabled people’s rights, covering topics such as child marriage, gender equality, and the right to education. We maintain compliance with The Children’s Agenda Tanzania program that includes a Children’s and Women’s Rights focus. A team of NGOs developed the Children’s Agenda program, including UNICEF and Save the Children. The Ministry of Community Work Gender and Children chaired the work. The internship’s practical tasks include advocating, teaching, and raising awareness for human rights issues faced in Tanzania. In addition, participants will work with the local community to provide education and support: visiting schools and orphanages, as well as working with local women. We also work closely with tribal communities in more rural areas. Here you will be immersed in a different way of life and help protect the rights of women and children.
Interns will gain incredible experience in a developing economy, discover a new perspective on global rights issues, develop skills such as public speaking, independence, resilience, and problem solving, and create memories of a lifetime.
Education and Awareness
Visit local community schools and orphanages to teach about human rights, raise awareness for factors threatening them, give talks at events and seminars, and learn how issues such as climate change can affect individuals in the poorest areas.
Human rights advocacy in tribal communities
Visit tribes and mining communities in rural Tanzania, where human rights are often abused in child labour and gender inequality. Help support and educate on crucial issues, advocate for human rights and work for real change.
Help build entrepreneurial skills for local businesswomen such as basic accounting, organisation, and marketing, give advice and support their growth. Organise workshops and visit small businesses in the area, as well as more tribal communities further afield that are beginning to develop small enterprises. Meet the inspiring women behind them
