Type: Humanitarian & Community Development , Teaching & Education,
Volunteer on a project based on the island of Zanzibar, located just off Africa's Tanzanian coast. The project works with with pre-schools, primary and secondary schools supporting local teachers in educating and playing with children as there are often too many children to accommodate at one time, and shortages of staff and facilities. You can also get involved with teaching not only English, but also computer and life skills to adults at the local tourism training institute, helping then acquire skills they can use to find work.
Zanzibar's local communities are severely affected by unemployment and lack of education and training. There are many places to get involved on this project. Workin the local nursery, primary and secondary schools or tourism training schools and local environmental programmes to aid community development. Most of the facilities are poorly equipped, which is why we need volunteers with initiative and a creative approach to teaching.
As a volunteer you will assist teachers in providing a better education to children, especially in improving their English language. Mostly you will teach English, singing and dancing, develop creative skills such as painting and drawing, and get involved with after-school sports.
For adults, many of whom hope for work in thr tourism industry, training in all areas of language, computing, administration and hospitality is needed. Any specific skills brought by volunteers are valuable.
Should you have teaching experience and/or skills and wish to get involved in teaching at the local Primary School, please let us have your Department of Education Certificates, CV and any other relevant Certificates or qualifications before you arrive so that we can put this in place for you if possible. As long as you have good English skills and a passion to teach these eager children, then we could use your help.
All projects are self-funded, but include accommodation, food, airport transfer and training. Click to apply and a project advisor will be in touch to discuss price and availability.
