About the Destination

Many schools in rural areas of Zambia suffer from a serious shortage of classrooms, educational resources and formally trained teachers. This has led to a ‘hot-seating’ system, where children are not able to attend school full time and can often only come in for either the morning or afternoon session. This, coupled with the harsh reality of poverty and parents’ inability to pay school fees, means many children do not complete their primary education.

However, children in Zambia are extremely eager to learn and local teachers need all the help they can get in the classroom to ensure that each child in their care receives the quality education they deserve. This TEFL practicum program supports local teachers in primary schools and provides a host of additional educational activities for rural village children that contributes to brighter futures for them and their families.

You’ll be staying in a private African Impact house within the popular and welcoming Livingstone Backpackers.  You will have access to a lovely swimming pool, lounge, BBQ and bar area.  Your accommodation is a 5 minute walk away from Livingstone’s town center and just a stone’s throw away from one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, Victoria Falls. The region is known as the ‘Adventure Capital of Africa’, so prepare for a lot of fun in your downtime.
