Volunteer With Us
The Greenhouse welcomes you to volunteer with our nonprofit organisation, The Green Living Planet (GLP). There are many aspects of work that volunteers can get involved with from helping to implement environmental activities in Arusha from tree planting to building vegetable gardens and access to water projects. Volunteers can spend time on our projects from as little as one week or up to several months. For more information, follow the link below to The Green Living Planet's website to find out more.
We don't believe in charging people to volunteer. The cost for volunteering with GLP is $140 USD per week which covers your accommodation, breakfast and dinner, orientation and pick-up from Kilimanjaro airport, Arusha airport or Arusha town upon arrival (if volunteering for 4 weeks or more). Fees do not cover flight costs, travel insurance, resident permits, volunteer visas and any optional day or weekend trips.
Please note that Tanzanian law states that volunteers must also obtain a Class C volunteer work permit once you arrive in Arusha. The Class C permit costs $200 USD and is easily obtained from the Immigration office in Arusha and we can assist you in applying for the permit. The permit fee will be in addition to the tourist visa fee and is valid for up to 90 days. Please contact us for more details.
Volunteers have the opportunity to get involved in any of our active projects are all focused around supporting local communities in Arusha with environmental activities.
