Red Sweater Project collaborates with developing communities in the creation of affordable, accessible and advanced educational opportunities for children in rural Tanzania. The organization operates The Mungere School near the town of Mto wa Mbu in the northern Arusha Region.

Red Sweater Project is accepting applications for a Math Teacher to instruct beginning, intermediate and advanced Math courses to Forms I - V at The Mungere School.

Mungere students live in a remote community, where English is rarely spoken and primary school is taught in the local language of Swahili. Yet, Tanzanian secondary school curriculum is in English medium and the language barrier can be a significant obstacle to learning. Teachers engage students to actively participate in Math classes and extra-curricular activities designed to broaden skills.
