volunteer with us!

GLP works with the schools and communities that lack the most basic facilities like clean running water, trees for shade and good soil and food.

Our mission is to promote environmental conservation, sustainable development and human welfare and advancement by bringing basic education and awareness about both environment and life at large to Tanzanian people.

 The Greenhouse provides accommodation for GLP volunteers as well as tourists and travellers looking for an affordable place to relax and stay in Arusha.

The Green Living Planet welcomes volunteers all year round. There are many aspects of work that volunteers can get involved with from helping to implement various environmental activities in Arusha including tree planting, building vegetable gardens and access to water projects.
