On the teaching programme, you will have the chance to assist teachers in schools or teach your own classes if you feel comfortable. You will mainly teach English or Mathematics but if you are competent in another subject then you would be very welcome to teach your subject. School classes start at 9:00am and finish by 3:00pm. The children will be grade 1 – 4 (year 7 – 11). Volunteers will be placed, depending on your wishes, in schools or orphanages which have schools attached to them. Orphanages will often have a minimum of 70 children and some will not have a school attached to them, however, if you would like to be a part of educating these children then you can also run classes for them. Teaching styles and schools will likely be very different to what you have grown up with. Therefore, to ensure the best experience for you as a volunteer and for the children you will be teaching, we ask that you participate on this program for a minimum of 2 weeks.
