"I'm sure when I ponder my life experiences, during the twilight of my years, I will regard my six weeks in Thailand as six of the most sensational weeks of my life... I traveled to Thailand hoping for an enriching experience. What I found exceeded my wildest expectations."
Chris Cox, International Health Program, Thailand
PROGRAM UPDATE: After 20 years of service in East Africa, GSC has concluded our work there, and therefore are NO LONGER offering programs in Tanzania.

We’ve decided to leave our Tanzania web pages up so visitors to our site can get an idea of the kind of work that we have done. Information can be found below on best practices and lessons learned from our Tanzania program that we've carried over to our Cambodia programs.


The Global Service Corps (GSC) Community Training Program in Tanzania prepares volunteer participants as trainers and provides opportunities to conduct GSC community trainings. These community training sessions are arranged in advance by GSC staff, are usually three to four days in length, and are given to various groups including students, women’s groups, farmers groups and other community groups. Community Training participants may choose to focus on either HIV/AIDS Prevention and Nutrition Education or Sustainable Agriculture and Food Security. By the end of the Community Training Program, participants will have gained valuable training experience in their chosen field.

In addition to training responsibilities, Community Training Program participants may have opportunity to help assess and evaluate the effectiveness of GSC’s community training. Short- and long-term volunteers and interns are provided opportunities (although not required) to take on an additional volunteer project in their extra time. These projects may include working with a local orphanage, supporting home-based care projects by building and distributing sack gardens for families affected by HIV/AIDS, and when appropriate, assisting GSC’s Community Development Program with on-going development projects with local organizations.
