Use the power of education to save lives while providing reassurance and care to Tanzanians who are regrettably living with the disease.

HIV/AIDS has devastated life in Tanzania, resulting in many children becoming orphaned and many women widowed. Lack of proper awareness of the pandemic and the lifestyle of Tanzanians are the two main reasons for this devastation. There are now many local initiatives underway to treat the victims and spread the awareness against the prevention of the disease. Many efforts have become successful and saved thousands of lives.

RCDP have teamed up with these initiatives and we are now offering you an opportunity to volunteer in our HIV/AIDS project in Tanzania. Through your work and dedication, these local initiatives will gain more momentum and succeed in saving thousands of lives.

Project Location

The HIV/AIDS project in Tanzania is located in the northern towns of Arusha, Moshi and Boma. Arush is often referred to as a gateway to the northern safari circuit. Despite being located very close to the equator, the town lies at an altitude of 14 hundred meters and enjoys cooler temperature year round. The town has superb views of Mount Meru and Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa. Coffee plantations and maize and wheat fields dominate the surrounding countryside. Arusha National Park, which is full of wildlife, is the nearest safari option.

Moshi is a smaller town and is located about 45 miles from Arusha. It also enjoys a cooler weather but is much wetter. There are many things to see and do in Moshi, including visiting lively markets, religious institutions, many different safari options, climbing Kilimanjaro and cultural trips to Maasai villages.
