About Us

We are a countrywide network of committed leaders working to unleash children’s potential in Tanzania

Teach For Tanzania’s innovative approach is designed to help improve the quality of education for all children in Tanzania to ensure every child has an excellence opportunity to quality education irrespective of their social economic circumstances. Teach For Tanzania’s bold vision relies on the idea that by harnessing our nation’s most promising recent graduates and immersing them in a rigorous training, mentor ship and support, and placing them in undeserved communities in a two-year full-time teaching experience, they will emerge as effective teachers, school heads, and well-rounded leaders who possess grit, resilience, determination and a sense of possibility to go on to transform their nation’s education system as alumni leaders working in the private and public sectors.

Our Core Values

LIFELONG LEARNING

We believe in constant learning, therefore we embrace our leaders
in taking bold actions that create lasting systemic change within and outside the education sector to benefit all Tanzanian children.

PEOPLE CENTERED

We keep the students and communities that we serve at the forefront of our work, and we thoughtfully and responsibly steward the experiences of the extraordinary Tanzanian fellows for systemic change

SENSE OF POSSIBILITY

We hope that Tanzania’s most talented leaders can solve educational challenges. At the same time, we hope they will be open, honest, and direct about the current problems in the communities and channel their actions in addressing those challenges

LOCALLY ROOTED, GLOBALLY INFORMED

We value the enormous assets in the communities where we work, immerse ourselves in local perspectives, needs and opportunities, and work in deep partnership with students, families, educators, and community members—all while also seeking to build our understanding of what is
possible based on insights from outside of our communities and nation at large
