Opportunity Details


PROJECT DESCRIPTION AND IMPACT

We are located on the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe in the tourist capital of Zambia with a number of touristic sites rich with wildlife, famous waterfalls, and rich culture with much to experience as the people are the most friendly creatures on the face of the earth!

Though Livingstone is rich in tourist attractions there is still a huge level of poverty. The low levels of education and skills due to economic challenges effect young and elderly people the most. Children are left by the parents as orphans and the elderly who are not working or in need end up taking care of their grandchildren. People in this area are very vulnerable. 

The important component of the Experteer is to engage the community by working with the interns and volunteers to provide community training, teaching skills, cooperative development and agricultural education.

By doing so the Experteer will help provide cooperative agriculture and business opportunities to address the local prevailing challenges through awareness and education

 

Great for people with teaching skills!
