Volunteer in Tanzania

Craft Academy volunteers at Turnbull Tech Training College in Tanzania! It is an enlightening experience rooted in our mission of increasing access to arts education worldwide. Teaching sewing, crocheting, and knitting resonated with the eager “fashionistas” at Turnbull, where resources are limited, but the desire to learn is infinite. We teach technical skills and instill a sense of empowerment and self-expression.

We have witnessed the transformative power of creativity firsthand. Throughout our classes, a sense of camaraderie and joy fills the air, magically transcending language barriers and cultural differences. Our time at Turnbull reaffirms the universal language of art and its potential to foster economic empowerment and personal development, even in challenging circumstances.

Our volunteer efforts at Turnbull Tech Training College showcase the importance of expanding access to arts education. By sharing practical skills and planting seeds of possibility, we are contributing to a future where creativity and individuals can thrive. Through this volunteer initiative, we are taking tangible steps toward our mission of making arts education accessible to all, enriching lives by Crafting Anytime. Anywhere.
