A Once In A Lifetime Experience

I am currently a primary school teacher in the UK and I have always been keen to widen my experience by seeing education in other cultures. This teaching experience in South Africa has definitely met and gone above my expectations. It has been an incredible week through supporting children with early reading, writing, ​and maths, as well as playing games. It has been amazing to use my skills to make a huge difference to children who are less fortunate. I will never forget this experience and has taught to be grateful for everything that I have.

a fantastic month

I have enjoyed my time in Zambia so so much. Everything captivated me from making new friends, all the way to watching the kids under my guidance progress and flourish to their potential. The constant turnover of volunteers keeps things fresh and really gives the place energy, whilst the continuity of the project allows for meaningful and progressive relationships to be struck with the children. On the first day i never thought i would be weeping when i leave... but all i can say is, this is a special place.

N Gibson Feedback

Amazing experience! Don't want to leave! All very well organised by the Livingstone AI team (Sander, Kristen and Joe) and you could see the impact you were making! Working with likeminded friends doesn't even feel like work!
