Tanzania Impact Stories and Media Gallery
Global Service Corps, a longstanding Non Governmental Organization (NGO) in Tanzania, offers a unique way to experience Tanzania through our Volunteer Vacations, Short-Term and Long-Term Volunteer Programs, International Internships, and Fellowship Programs.
Overseas volunteers in Tanzania and interns participate in two-week to six-month service-learning programs that focus on HIV/AIDS Prevention and Nutrition Education, Sustainable Agriculture and Food Security, and International Health. These programs can be experienced through the Community Training, Community Development or Integrated Program formats. GSC also offers a six-month to one-year Seeds of Sustenance (SOS) Fellowship Program for those with an advanced degree in public health, international health or international development. All Tanzania volunteer programs include in-depth cultural orientation and technical training, Swahili lessons, and a safari excursion!
GSC works closely with participants prior to their trip to create a program best suited to their interest areas. Once on-site, our in-country coordinators and host families provide all the needed assistance and support.

Tanzania is Africa's land of superlatives. The continent's highest mountain, Mount Kilimanjaro (19,340'), stands three degrees south of the equator. Oldovai Gorge is the site of Leakey's discovery of the oldest human bones. The Selous is the largest game preserve in the world. The Serengeti has the largest concentration of game. Africa's longest coral reef is the Island of Zanzibar. The largest extinct volcanic crater is Ngorongoro, which measures 12 miles across and is home of the largest permanent population of game in all of Africa. For years, world travelers have flocked to Tanzania to get a glimpse of these natural treasures, abundant wildlife, and fascinating traditional cultures. Yet, the vast majority of these travelers pass through the country without ever appreciating what is at the heart of the Tanzanian experience: the People.
