Less than a third of Tanzania’s population have access to adequate sanitation - even fewer in rural areas.
Career breakers are needed by Raleigh International to lead teams of young volunteers (aged 17 – 24) as they work to improve this figure!
Improving sanitation has many positive impacts. For example by building toilet facilities around local schools you will also be enabling girls’ to continue their education; many are forced to drop out when they reach puberty due to lack of these basic amenities.
As a volunteer manager you will be facilitating and supporting the young volunteers to either build toilet facilities, local kindergartens and raising awareness of sanitation and hygiene in the local communities. The exact work you will do is determined by local needs, which can change from expedition to expedition.
You can also lead your team of young international volunteers on an adventure challenge. Developing young people to become active citizens is a crucial part of a Raleigh volunteer manager role, and you'll be helping them build a better future.
Specific roles for career breakers include:
- Project managers
- Adventure projects managers (must be Mountain Leader qualified or have extensive experience in trekking or other outdoor activities)
- Medics (doctors, nurses and paramedics who must have at least two years post-qualification experience)
- Communications officers
- Logistics coordinators
Raleigh are now recruiting volunteer managers for the summer 8- and 13-week programmes running from June – September 2016.

Whatever role you choose, you will experience living and working in a dramatically different setting whilst improving the lives of others.
