Business Internship in Tanzania

Business to make a difference! Intern abroad and gain experience while helping others


At GapGuru, we aim to help marginalised members of society in Arusha and Moshi to build sustainable livelihoods for themselves and their families.

We constantly identify people who need aid and, with the help of gap year interns, we identify what local business these people could run and what support they need from our end. Through our registered charity, the FutureSense Foundation (Charity No: 1132101), we provide a small grant to designated recipients, allowing them to set up small businesses to support their families. All livelihood options are selected on the basis of what is available locally, such as rice cultivation, rearing poultry, selling fruits and vegetables, ironing, etc.

Volunteers with business experience and/or qualifications can provide training and advisory support to these recipients on how to run business effectively, such as where to buy things from, how much to sell them for, what to do with the money, etc.

Over the years, we have helped over 250 people, each with at least 4-5 dependants, and our aim is to help many more in years to come.

Gap year intern role: An important part of the programme is to record correct data and analyse it to help make sound decisions. The support given by the interns to the local community can be life changing.

The business internship role will further develop depending on requirements that exist at the time of your project. If you are studying Maths or Statistics this project would particularly benefit from your skills.

Your gap year experience: A gap year internship in Tanzania gives you the opportunity to learn how small businesses work in developing countries. It also gives you the opportunity to apply what you have learnt in school/uni in a real life scenario. Moreover, you will be using your skills to make a meaningful difference to people. Interns in Tanzania can also use their weekends to visit local attractions such as the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Crater.
