About the Program

The lack of adequate schooling facilities is a huge problem in Victoria Falls, especially at primary school level (ages 6 - 13). With an ever-growing population and high number of children making up this population, primary schools are often over-crowded, understaffed and lack the necessary infrastructure and resources to provide a solid and well-rounded education service.

School classrooms often see a teacher to student ratio of 1:45 (1 teacher for every class of 45 students). As a direct result of this, schools focus almost 100% on the academic side of things. Having volunteers at these schools enables them to offer additional activities such as sport, art and music. Students who are struggling in class can then also get the individual attention that they require.

Freizeitaktivitäten

Victoria Falls is best known for being one of the 7 Natural Wonders of the World – this enormous mass of water, constantly flowing and falling over 110m (twice the height of North America’s Niagara falls), has attracted millions of travellers since its discovery in 1855. These falls, located on the border between Zambia to the north and Zimbabwe to the south, are known to locals as Mosi-oa-Tunya (“The Smoke That Thunders”) - they have since given rise to Victoria Falls town (Zimbabwe). With a population of approx. 36 000, the town’s economy is heavily dependent on the tourism industry.

There are an incredible number of activities for visitors to do during their leisure time, including:

-           Zambezi River Sunset Cruise – US$55.00

-           Victoria Falls Unguided Tour – US$30.00 (additional US$20.00 for guide)

-           Elephant Encounter (no rides) – US$75.00

-           Zip-Line Canopy Tour – US$53.00
