Opportunity Details


PROJECT DESCRIPTION AND IMPACT

Our organization works closely with partner Schools and community adult education learning centers both primary and secondary schools. There are shortages of teachers therefore there is a need for volunteers to help with the teaching in these schools to supplement the teaching staff. The volunteers could teach English, Mathematics, Science, Social studies, Religious studies, History, Physical Education to every age student. Because of lack of teachers the education quality is compromised therefore children need extra help with homework. Most parents are illiterate therefore they can’t help the children with their homework The school calendar is divided into three terms.

A term runs for approximately 3 months but your volunteer activities do not need to end since you can continue to help children with academics in their weak areas, sports, music and dance, and drama and workshops on topical/empowerment issues.
