Volunteers in the Teaching program work in primary and secondary schools in and around the region of Arusha. The schools are short of well trained staff and need the assistance of volunteers for teaching children.
As a volunteer your main role would be to work as a teacher assistant in the placement and assist the current teachers and staff. Volunteers teach English, Maths, Geography and Science to the students.Volunteers can bring with you interesting teaching materials, books, stationary, flash cards and games which will help you in teaching students. Volunteers work for 5-6 hrs in a day for 5 days in a week.
During the school holiday periods, volunteers have the option of working in orphanage schools.
