Teaching & Education Volunteering

Click here for more information

English literacy rates and the general standard of education in many rural and urban African communities is unfortunately very low. Our volunteers have the chance to make a real impact by helping pre-school children become classroom-ready, being involved in after-school clubs, helping students with their homework, teaching adult literacy classes and providing support to existing teachers.

As a volunteer on these projects you’ll often be based at outlying schools that are very rural and basic, but where children are desperate to learn. If you’re a qualified teacher or educator, you’ll be able to make a big impact in these communities, but even if you have no teaching experience at all, your assistance can prove life-changing for these children.

Volunteers are provided with plenty of guidance and on-the-ground support, where our teams will help you with lesson planning and facilitating classes. You may also be involved in sports coaching and outdoor activities with the kids – always great fun for everyone involved!
