Art in Tanzania is introducing and implementing environmentally-friendly solutions for Tanzanian communities. These solutions include the use of dry toilets, composting and household water reuse, and solar water purification systems. We also emphasize sustainable tourism operations.

Tanzanian communities lack the economic strength needed to implement environmentally friendly solutions in their households. Presently less than 50% of the households have a toilet. Interns are developing sustainable and affordable solutions including dry toilets for households and schools. This program includes an introduction to solar-based water purification as well.

Other green work includes developing compost, finding sustainable sources for providing heat for cooking, developing tree and bamboo nurseries as well as educating the neighborhood, and doing advocacy work. Wildlife safaris and other tourism operations are an important local source of funding. The safaris also help us in our work towards sustainability. We are developing an NGO business model to streamline revenue back into communities.

You can also get experience in an African tree nursery and help in planting operations.

The working hours are 6-8 hours per day from Monday to Friday. Paid internships include a local minimum wage of USD 100 per month. We also offer stipends depending on the terms of the internship and regulations of your home university.

We use our social media pages for advocacy work and our Facebook pages have more than 50K followers.
