How you can volunteer?

The Mango Tree supports both volunteering schemes for students and internship opportunities for postgraduates and MA students. If you feel you have skills, and would like to work with us, we would be happy to discuss the opportunities with you.

The organisation has evolved so much from my first visit in 2006. I am incredibly proud to be a part of its past as well as helping with its future.

International Development Studies MA student, Lucy Cole, completed an internship with The Mango Tree in Tanzania. She supported us to conduct a detailed baseline survey in Kenya and Tanzania, helped to strengthen our monitoring and evaluation systems and assisted with in-country fundraising activities. Lucy leaves The Mango Tree as a fluent Swahili speaker, with a wide range of skills and experiences, which have enabled her to complete her MA dissertation and pursue a career in International Development. 

Gap year students, Laragh O'Malley and Laura Wigan from Uppingham School, visited Tanzania to volunteer with us. Encouraged by the enthusiasm of the Kyela Polytechnic College students, they developed their own extra-curricula English club, which they ran four times a week, to help students to improve their written and spoken English. Read all about Laura and Laragh's experience volunteering with The Mango Tree below.
