Special Needs Education, Zambia

Many children living in poverty with special needs require assistance in learning, development and just having fun.

Livingstone Day Cheshire Homes is a non-governmental institution supporting a number of children with various disabilities. The home has over 150 children registered, of which 26 attend school there each day, some are sponsored by the home to attend local schools and others are assisted through home care and alternative means.

With limited classroom space, limited finances, and scarce resources, the home has experiencing major challenges. Volunteer assistance is highly valued, particularly qualified teaching volunteers to assist in the children’s education. A double classroom is being used for teaching and physiotherapy sessions for community children and youth between the ages of 1 and 25 years.

This volunteer program in Livingstone includes teaching daily living activities, supporting children with disabilities who have schooling requirements and a feeding program. Voluntary teachers are also needed to work alongside the staff to reach the needs of this diverse age group of children.

In this volunteer program you are encouraged to introduce fresh new ideas like planning art sessions, and creating games and exercises. As the need is great, the program also extends to other volunteer community projects where you will assist in building, farming, sports coaching, art & reading clubs as well as volunteering at the old age home.

Volunteer opportunities in Africa are diverse and allow you to be immersed into a new culture, meet new people and explore a magnificent setting full of new adventures.
