Kindergarten in Moshi

Praktikum und Volunteering möglich
Internship and Volunteer Work is possible in several kindergarten schools in Moshi/Kilimanjaro, Tanzania such as Lutheran Church, TAFCOM and Akili Kindergarten.

Project Details

The Lutheran Church runs four kindergartens which are all located in the Pasua Area of Moshi Town at the foot of Kilimanjaro. The children are 3-7 years old. They typical attend kindergarten in two shifts: the youngest children (3-4 years) are at the kindergarten from 7a.m. - 11 a.m. and the older children (upto 6/7 years) come from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Whereas the toddlers only play, the older children learn to read, write, calculate and they have classes on “Behavior” and “Hygiene” which are based on the Montessori method. Knowledge about this method of education is however, not expected from volunteers/interns.
Each of the Kindergartens is attended by around 200-400 children every day.
One of the Kindergartens has a special group of around 250 handicapped children who are from different parts of the Moshi area. One parent accompanies the children from his or her area every morning to the kindergarten.
Even during the school vacations (December and July) there are always children under 3 years at the kindergartens that participate in preparation courses in order to attend lessons the following term. Therefore it is possible to volunteer/intern throughout the year.
For the large amount of children, the kindergartens do not have enough staff and therefore, need volunteers. At the moment there is one educator in charge for around 25 children. Our participants are free to decide whether they also want to spend time with the handicapped children.
TAFCOM operates a day care center for orphans and disadvantaged children. The approximately 40 children at kindergarten age acquire basic skills in reading , writing, arithmetic and English . About 20 children who belong to Tuleeni orphanage, attend daily the Akili kindergarten in Moshi-Rau. Of these six children are from Tuleeni and the others are from Rau.
