Welcome to Tanzania!

I am thrilled to extend a warm Karibu (welcome) on behalf of the Peace Corps Tanzania team. Your journey with us signifies a commitment to service, professionalism, and making a meaningful impact in communities across this beautiful country.

Tanzania, with its rich tapestry of cultures, breathtaking landscapes, and dedicated people, presents both joys and challenges in the pursuit of sustainable development. As you embark on this adventure, you join a legacy of peace and friendship through service that dates back to 1961, making Tanzania one of the oldest and most esteemed programs in the Peace Corps family.

At the heart of our mission lies a dedication to professionalism, quality, and accountability. We are steadfast in our commitment to fostering collaboration, trust, and communication in every endeavor. Through inclusivity and a focus on excellence, we strive to uphold the highest standards as we work hand in hand with rural communities to achieve lasting change.

As you prepare to serve, know that your role is pivotal in re-establishing the strength of Peace Corps in Tanzania. Whether you find yourself in Secondary Education, Community Health, or Sustainable Agriculture, your contributions will play a vital part in advancing our shared goals of empowerment and progress.

In Secondary Education, you will become a beacon of knowledge, shaping the minds of Tanzanian students and teachers alike. Your efforts will not only bolster academic achievement but also foster critical thinking and promote gender equity in the classroom.

For those called to the field of Health Education, your compassion and dedication will touch lives in profound ways. You will be instrumental in improving the health and well-being of communities throughout Tanzania.

In Sustainable Agriculture, you will work hand in hand with local partners to cultivate resilience and stewardship of natural resources. Through innovative practices and community engagement, you will help pave the way for a more sustainable future, ensuring food security and economic opportunity for generations to come.

Beyond the tangible impact you will make, your journey as a Peace Corps Volunteer embodies a spirit of connection and understanding. By immersing yourself in local communities, you will forge bonds that transcend borders, fostering a deeper appreciation for our shared humanity.

As you embark on this transformative experience, remember that you are not only an ambassador for change but also a bridge between cultures. Your journey will be marked by challenges and rewards, but I have no doubt that it will exceed your expectations and leave an indelible mark on your life.

Once again, Karibu Tanzania! Together, let us embrace the values of service, professionalism, and accountability as we embark on this remarkable journey of peace and friendship.

Warm regards,

Stephanie Joseph de Goes
Country Director, Peace Corps Tanzania
