TEACH – Time to Empower Africa’s Children

TEACH is an organization committed to empowering the next generation of youth leaders in both Africa and the UK. Their field projects are in Tanzania and Ghana and focus on fueling internally-driven change through local change-makers. They work with rural youth to equip and empower them with the relevant skills, knowledge and mentorship to identify & tackle the challenges in their immediate surroundings, uplifting themselves and their community.

They run a number of projects in Tanzania focusing on empowering women and youth in Tanzania. One of their most successful projects was the development of Kauli, an ethical African fashion brand run by talented local women between 18 and 35 who didn’t have the opportunity to complete their schooling.

Volunteers can partake in the Charity Challenges program which takes place over summer and include climbing Kilimanjaro, cycling to Amsterdam and volunteering to help build a school in Ghana to name a few. Volunteers help as marshals for fundraising events or manage their own fundraising projects.

Internships can partake in ACT (Action in the Community in Tanzania). They are usually carried out over the summer and have a minimum requirement of 3 months. For the internships they look for students and recent graduates, in particular those who have studied international development or have a background in health, business or education.

Interns help with research and setting up and running a community project in Tanzania. Not only are they given a large degree of autonomy over their project, but they also have a dedicated member of the TEACH team on hand to give them any help and support they need along the way.
