Farmer and Teachers Sought to Live and Work in Tanzania

Palms Aust Hero“Perhaps the farmer has a wife schoolteacher?” he quips.

Of course, you don’t have to be married to the farmer. A secondary teacher and a pre-school teacher will be put to good use mentoring local teachers thus assisting to sustainably build the capacity in two vital areas of education. As Palms Australia’s Executive Director, Roger O’Halloran notes:

“Improving teachers' ability to impart knowledge and skills is not only good for the teachers but ensures generations of children have improved opportunities. Palms supports this model because it is more sustainable than just sending someone to teach the kids for 12 months. ”

Should you take on this opportunity, you will be prepared and supported in your placement by Palms Australia which has over 60 years of experience preparing and assisting Australians to learn and pass on their skills in another culture.

Tanzania has a population of around 60 million people which is made up of more than 120 ethnic groups. Its economy is dominated by agriculture which employs over two thirds of its workforce. Extensive education programs have seen adult literacy rates grow to two thirds of the adult population but there is still much work to be done in this area.
