Location

Early Childhood Center in Arusha, Tanzania

About

This project is the first and one of its kind in Arusha that receives infants without prejudice to any preexisting health condition, such as being HIV+. Before this project, these infants use to stay at the hospital, because there was no place to take care of them. This project was established to provide interim care for infants in need, it’s a place where the babies will receive proper nutrition, medical care, as well as all the love and attention they deserve.

You will work 6 – 8 hours per day, Monday through Friday, with evenings and weekends off to travel. In some cases, you may be required to work on Saturdays or Sundays depending on the activities planned. It is important to maintain flexibility in order to meet program and participant needs, which can sometimes change quickly in response to local events.
