From £895
Duration 28 - 70 Days
Teach in a local school in one of the most extraordinary destinations on Earth. Provide vital basic skills, environmental education and get involved with a variety of activities.

Madagascar’s dramatic forest landscape is home to a fascinating diversity of life, with baobab and aloe trees, lemurs, chameleons and a whole host of other species that are found nowhere else on Earth! Its fantastically beautiful coastline boasts coral reefs rich in marine species, perfect for diving and snorkelling, and silky sanded beaches ideal for soaking up the bountiful sunshine. Madagascar’s culture is vibrant and diverse; you will find bustling markets full of multicoloured produce and hospitable locals shouting their wares.

Overall schools in Madagascar are basic and teachers are in high demand; therefore your contribution will be extremely valuable. You will teach conversational and beginner’s English to these impoverished children, help with environmental education, and participate in other community activities. This truly will be an incredibly rewarding experience in one of the most extraordinary destinations in the world!

WHAT DOES THE PROJECT DO?

The majority of primary school-age children and 36% of secondary school-age children attend school. However, schools are severely under-funded and there is an unequal distribution of educational resources across the country. Poor and rural communities can only attend seriously disadvantaged public schools.

The vast majority of the population speaks only Malagasy, and there is a lack of foreign-language teachers. Your help can give children and adults a sense of confidence, encourage their enthusiasm and ambition, and even improve their opportunities for the future. To teach, you will need to be patient, flexible, a confident communicator and able to use your initiative and imagination. It would be helpful to have beginner’s level French although not essential as you will have plenty of opportunities to learn! Lessons will be fun and interactive, developing the children’s confidence and conversational skills. Over summer when there are school holidays you will continue to teach lessons in town, classes in the local villages near to our camp and adult education in Hellville. The local communities are extremely grateful for the support of the adult education classes, which are another rewarding aspect of this varied project.
