EDUCATION IN TANZANIA
Learn about education and schooling in the specific context of northern Tanzania. Enjoy your orientation at the United African Alliance Community Center (UAACC) in the foothills of Mount Meru. Engage with local families and Tanzanian teachers and students, and develop a deeper understanding of the issues they face. There may be time for practice teaching or community service. We are also able to arrange local homestays if your program permits.
