BCF Current Projects:
Our Community Development Projects give volunteers and interns great opportunities to develop their own skills and see the tangible benefits of their work in the local communities. Our projects rely upon the enthusiasm and experience of volunteers from across the world, working under the supervision of our dedicated staff. This section provides general information about the type of volunteer work you could do with us.
Volunteers are needed to work in the following fields:
All Integrated volunteers in Moshi receive three to five days of cultural orientation and training and then divide their remaining time between two or more volunteer projects. Integrated options include the combinations of the Orphanage Care Program, HIV/AIDS Education and Prevention Program, and Teach English to Kindergarten, Primary school and Secondary school.
Integrated programs require a minimum of three weeks in total program duration with a commitment of at least one week per project. If the Integrated Program includes the Orphanage Care Program the minimum total program duration is four weeks.
BCF SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTURE & FOOD SECURITY PROGRAM
The Sustainable Agriculture & Food Security Service-Learning Program is especially suitable for those interested in agriculture and food security, environmental science, natural resources, ecology, international development, public health or related fields. However, prior agricultural experience is not required, so volunteers from all backgrounds are invited to participate in this program. You must simply have a desire to give something back to the community, and a willingness to work hard and get dirty! The Sustainable Agriculture & Food Security Program requires a 3-week minimum commitment but can be extended to three months or more and may, for longer stays include other programmatic modules by participating in the Integrated Service-Learning Program. The Sustainable Agriculture Service-Learning Program starts off with a week-long orientation and technical training followed by participation in a variety of community training workshops to promote food security. The workshops conducted during your program will depend on the needs of the community at that time.
