The program is important because it is targeting the education of our young generation to be equipped with the basics of using the English language effectively and efficiently.The social issues that we face especially in the rural areas where we are located are lack of information due our people being not able to read by themselves because most of the information is found in English which the community members do not understand.We try to solve this issue by empowering the communities with quality basic education so that they can be able to communicate effectively and efficiently with the other communities and on different platforms and media.The program is mainly about teaching our children the English language which is our official language used by the people in all sectors of our country.English is the language that we use to teach children at all schools in the country and even exams are conducted in English but our rural based children are not well conversed with the English language.The main role of the volunteers will be to teach our children at different schools how to speak,write and use the English language effectively and efficiently.The place where the volunteers will be working is a typical rural area .The schools not equipped with the best teaching materials but we use the basic ones like pen and chalk on a black board.The volunteers will be working hand in hand with with our local teachers since the children have never been taught by a foreign person.Volunteers will be living with host families so that they can also learn our social cultural beliefs and practices.We expect the volunteers to be teaching our children how the English language is spoken written and used.We also expect volunteers to teach our children different songs and some sports.We also expect volunteers to come with any teaching materials that can be used to teach the children the language of English effectively and efficiently.We expect volunteers to learn from us our standards and conditions of living,our social cultural values,beliefs and practices and also our local language which is spoken by the people in the area.Volunteers can also learn our local music,dance and drama.
The tasks undertaken will depend on their level of experience and qualifications. Volunteers may include, but are not limited to teaching the English language to our pupils and students  at  our  community schools

Volunteers work for at least five hours a day.The rest of the hours especially in the evenings after 4.00 pm is free time. Weekends and public holidays are also free to all volunteers to go for touring to different places of their choice.
