Main Activities Students study a variety of subjects, including Kiswahili, English, Math, Science, History, Geography, Ethics, Vocational Skills, and Religion. Grace is an English-medium school so all classes must be taught in English. The school offers a safe and well-structured environment in which the kids can learn well. Volunteer tasks Volunteers will assist in two main areas: improving of oral English by support teaching in grades 1-6, and by teaching mathematics/ science by support teaching in the same grades.

UVIKIUTA is an independent non-governmental organization that works with youth. It was created in 1983 following a proposal in which the Government of Tanzania invited unemployed youth to group together in order to receive assistance. Uvikiuta's projects focus on income generation, employment, and nutrition.
United Planet Tanzania (UPTZ) became a partner of ICYE in 2009. As a local, Tanzania-based non-profit organization, UPTZ is dedicated to bridging the cultural gap between Tanzania and other countries. Through volunteer, community-based assistance, cultural exchange visits, and homestays with local families, greater cross-cultural understanding and long-lasting impact within communities is fostered.
