Teach English Immersion in a Maasai Village, Tanzania, Africa

Posted By: Red Sweater Project <[email protected]>
Date: Monday, 23 September 2019, at 5:16 p.m.

Red Sweater Project collaborates with developing communities in the creation of affordable, accessible and innovative educational opportunities for children in rural Tanzania. The organization operates the Mungere School near the town of Mto wa Mbu in the northern Arusha Region.

We are accepting applications for an ESL-trained English Teacher to lead the English Immersion Program (EIP), teaching beginner language skills to Pre-Form I students (equivalent US 7th Grade level) at the Mungere School, engaging them to speak, read, write and understand English in a creative environment.

Mungere students live in a remote community where English is rarely spoken and primary school is taught in the local language of Swahili. Yet, Tanzanian secondary school curriculum is based in English medium and the language barrier can be a significant obstacle to learning. Teachers engage students in the year-long EIP to actively participate in English classes and extra-curricular activities designed to broaden skills to prepare them for their coursework in Form I.

Work, with a side of ADVENTURE.

As you experience life in a remote tribal community and explore Tanzania’s scenery and wildlife, it is difficult not to fall in love with the country and its people.

Mungere Village is nestled in Africa’s Great Rift Valley, a short distance from Lake Manyara and Tarangire National Parks, Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area, Serengeti plains and other unique destinations. Travel further from the village to summit Mt. Kilimanjaro or relax on the beaches of Zanzibar Island.
