African angels

As a German future primary school teacher working at African angels was an amazing experience!
A normal school day starts with a view of the sunrise over the sea and a short walk to the village bistro where the school bus picks you up.
In the classroom you assist the teacher by reading with the kids, supporting in the computer lab and helping out wherever you are needed. The communication with the children isn't a problem because they start learning English at grade R and have a really good level in the further classes.
I would recommend it to everyone who loves children, who wants to do something good and who wants to spent an unforgettable time in a beautiful part of South Africa!

I left my heart in Chintsa...

I spent 3 months in Chintsa and worked as a volunteer at the African Angels primary school in the middle of the stunning Wild Coast.
I assisted the teacher in grade 1. Sometimes we split the class into two smaller groups so that the teacher and I could teach the kids more individually. As the classes are really small (not more than 20 kids per class) you can really get to know all of the children and learn a lot about their Xhosa-culture.
This school is a great opportunity for the children - most of them live in the nearby townships and have a very poor background.
African Angels can be very proud about what they built up in a few years and it was a pleasure to be part of it. I will definitely come back!!
