Volunteer Activities:

ASSISTANT CLASSROOM TEACHING

As a teaching volunteer, you will spend time assisting teachers in their classrooms, sometimes taking a small group outside for more focused teaching, team teaching, providing one on one attention for those who are struggling, and even teach some lessons of your own.

 

TEACHING IN AFTER-SCHOOL CLUBS

After-school programs help a great deal in the development of children, in their motor skills, reading, literacy and creative development. Part of your volunteer work will include teaching children the alphabet, phonics, spelling, pronunciation and general reading and comprehension skills. You will also conduct and develop outdoor games and art projects and just have some fun interacting with the kids.

 

BUILDING AND FARMING

To assist the development of very limited educational facilities and set up sustainable farming programs, you may have to do get your hands dirty with some hard labor. This might include mixing cement, making and laying bricks, laying concrete floors, plastering walls and painting. On the farming side, volunteers sometimes lend a helping hand preparing farming land, planting seeds, watering, weeding and harvesting, all while soaking up the warm African sun.

 

TEACHING ADULT LITERACY

Improving adult literacy subsequently improves chances of employment. You will get a unique volunteer opportunity to gain first-hand insight into a different culture and to make new friends from the community by facilitating structured lesson plans and tests in the adult literacy course. A certificate is issued to students upon successful completion of the course, and they are really invested in their ongoing education.

User Comments:

“On a very personal level the volunteer program took me out of my normal comfort zone and challenged me enormously. It has been a wonderful experience to be part of a project that is clearly making a difference to the daily lives of individuals and local communities as a whole. I will definitely be recommending it to others.”
