ESL Program Coordinator

Tanzanian Children's Fund

About the organization

The Tanzanian Children's Fund works to ensure that all children and families in the Karatu
region of northern Tanzania lead healthy and productive lives and have the opportunity to become
positive agents of change for their country. In order to achieve our goals, TCF provides a loving and
permanent home for marginalized children at the Rift Valley Children's Village. However, TCF also recognizes that the best way to promote the well-being of all children is to provide access to high-quality education, free healthcare, and microfinance trainings and loans to the entire community. Our innovative, multi-pronged approach to addressing systemic poverty is what has enabled us to have a deep impact and catalyze real and lasting change.


The Tanzanian Children’s Fund is seeking a native English speaker with at least two years of ESOL/ESL/ELL experience and at least one year of training experience to work for the Rift Valley Children’s Fund in rural Tanzania.

RVCV is located in a remote and impoverished village in the Karatu District, adjacent to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area.

The primary goal of this position is to build teachers’ capacity to teach English and students’ ability to learn English in order to bring about greater learning outcomes for students, positioning them for future educational and professional success.
