About Grumeti Fund

The Grumeti Fund is a Tanzanian non-profit organization that works with government, community, and institutional stakeholders as well as local and international partners to conserve wildlife in and around Grumeti Concession area (Ikorongo and Grumeti Game Reserves and part of Ikona WMA). The Grumeti Fund also promotes and implements various community outreach and livelihood improvement programs. Grumeti Concessions fall within Serengeti and Bunda Districts in Mara Region. Of the 22 villages that are adjacent to the Concession area, 13 are located in Serengeti District whereas the other 9 are in Bunda.  

The Community Outreach department is implementing interventions under three focal areas. These are education support (scholarships & teaching support), rural enterprise development, and environmental awareness in both districts. Collectively, these outreach programs aim at enhancing secure livelihoods, improving household incomes, promoting sustainable living and better environmental stewardship thereby improving community wellbeing as well as enabling harmonious co-existence of people, wildlife and their environment. 

About Teaching Support Fellowship Program 

Through Community Outreach Program, Grumeti Fund is running a fellowship teaching program in primary schools within Serengeti and Bunda districts. The aim of this fellowship program is to help address shortage of teachers in primary schools around Grumeti Concessions. These advertised fellowship opportunities are for applicants who are qualified and able to effectively teach English. This fellowship program is part of Grumeti Fund’s support to enhance learning outcomes for children and youth in Serengeti and Bunda districts. Successful applicants (teaching support fellows) will be assigned to needy schools where they are expected to compliment teaching in collaboration with resident teachers in respective schools.
