Volunteer Your Time

Show Your Support

The Olive Branch for Children recognizes the ongoing debate around ‘voluntourism’ in developing countries. While volunteering internationally can be a very exciting and meaningful experience for the volunteer, if done incorrectly, it can actually be detrimental to local communities. TOBFC provides opportunities to visit ethically with us in Tanzania. To help ensure that the time spent is mutually beneficial for the communities we require participants to participate with ongoing projects ONLY.


We offer Unpaid Internships, Cultural Exchanges and Mentorship opportunities. Want more information on opportunities in Tanzania?  Email allison@theolivebranchforchildren.org If you are interested in volunteering in Tanzania, you will receive our Ethical Volunteer Guide.
