Working in Tandem


Welcome to Working in Tandem

'Working hand in hand with the people of Tanzania'

Working in Tandem logo

It all began in 2005 when a group of 30 Nottingham students went out to Meserani, Tanzania and built an education centre for the local community. This centre offers free education to anyone who wants it, teaching subjects like Swahili reading and writing, English, Computing and Maths. By joining Working in Tandem you could help sustain this through fundraising and even volunteering to travel to Meserani and teach in the centre!

Working In Tandem funds the initial education centre, raising money throughout the year to ensure that everyone in Meserani and the surrounding area has access to a free education, and we need your help to do it! So if you've got any ideas, expertise or spare time and you'd like to get involved, we are always looking for new inspiration either with fundraising, publicity, raising awareness or with planning the summer placements for volunteers to go to Meserani. Any input you can bring to Working in Tandem will always be welcome.

Meetings are Wednesdays at 1pm - 2pm, rooms vary so message us to ask or check with the Student Volunteer Centre in Portland.

If you want to get involved in helping this amazing charity but can't attend the meetings, we're always holding events, including regular cake sales in Portland and faculty buildings, band nights in The Studio Live, Safari Suppers and our weekly Sunday Pub Quiz in Mooch, so come along and have a great time in the name of charity!
