Make a Difference in the Lives of Children
What Will Volunteers Do?
The focus of this project is to improve the lives of impoverished children, supporting their education, diet, families and communities. Volunteers are required to help run the kindergarten/day care centre, getting involved in activities such as teaching (English, maths, remedial reading, etc), computer classes and sports education. Volunteers are also needed to help teach English to children who attend the public elementary school. Volunteers work side by side with an experienced TESL certified teacher. For those interested, there is also the possibility of;
- Working at a local orphanage
- Helping with remedial reading and maths
- One-on-one homework support
- Creative expression workshops (art, music, drama, writing, etc).
There is no cost to participate but volunteers are responsible for covering their living expenses. Most volunteers stay in a beach house which costs between £17 – £26 per week. Volunteers purchase and prepare their own food. Volunteers can also opt for home-stay or private accommodation
The volunteer receives a range of benefits in exchange for their work, including the possibility of accompanying the owners on one of their tours when space is available.
