Star Schools Iringa Is A Series Of Schools From Nursery To Secondary School

"Humour and commitment"

This is the Deal

Star Schools are based in IRINGA< TANZANIA< AFRICA. Star volunteers has its own program of activities within the three schools, continually building sustainable projects that are self running.
These vary from simple inputs like a weekly spelling B to long term projects like the newly completed Library. (The only Dewey system library in a Tanzanian School) and at present is using volunteers to work alongside students to renovate a very large classroom into an African Arts Centre . Art is not part of Tanzanian curriculum.

All the schools are English speaking with 100% Tanzanian students.

As we work through our projects we have an updated list we send to potential volunteers. We have projects to suit all age levels and welcome experience in any form.

Its our aim that you should have a rounded volunteering experience, so we also present small part time opportunities to volunteers within the community as well as Star Schools.

Please contact us with your questions.
