Volunteer in Africa!

ONEHEARTSOURCE is a student led volunteer opportunity in Tanzania, Africa.

Right now, it is estimated 25 million children are orphaned by AIDS.
Tanzania alone is home to more than 2.4 million orphans, 1.1 million
of whom have been orphaned by the HIV/AIDS epidemic. You can help turn
this reality around.

Volunteer with One Heart Source, the first academic-intensive
orphanage in Africa for children made vulnerable by the AIDS epidemic.
Gain international experience working in Tanzania, learn Swahili, involve yourself in development & aid,
global health, childhood education, and much more!

One Heart Source offers a variety of 4 to 8 week volunteer programs in both the spring and summer.
Below are the range of dates for programs; check out the website for specific dates!
