The main aim of this project to enhance the communicative and written skills in the world’s most popular language and indulge correct phonics against the native accent. This volunteer program is especially suitable for:
Âge 18+
Seul voyageur
Couples
Familles
Groupes
50+

Do you love English? Do you love other languages? Are you prepared to join in a mix of languages and toil to share your knowledge with others? Are you good with kids and youth? If yes is your answer, then this is the right place to come to.

In the local environment, most schools can’t afford good-quality teachers or updated international teaching standards due to financial restrictions.

Volunteers will be working in Primary Schools therefore engaging them improve right from the grassroots to meet everyone’s needs. Like most African countries, English is the official language of Kenya yet the exposure is not so much towards the rural regions.

We would try to bring in English speaking volunteers to the area thus enhancing the student's understanding of vocabulary and spoken phonics which require a better quality as compared to the regular curriculum which they are used to.

For example, verbs and verbal phrases are often confused with. In the whole curriculum in most junior high schools, there is no regular explanation of simple and compound sentences and that needs to be changed.

Later on, as they would progress to secondary and university realms of English education, they would be well-equipped to handle and tackle some of these challenges.

We are looking for volunteers for the following agendas:

  1. Teaching assistance.
  2. Help the students get a better understanding of English itself.
  3. Engage them in visual and interactive methods against an outdated old-school system.
  4. Engaging in art and craft activities.
  5. Vlogging on the school’s situation and background, if possible.

Journée Typique

First Day: On your first day of volunteering, you will be escorted to your accommodation by a local coordinator/staff member and allowed to relax and rest.

Following that, you will meet the organizational hierarchy who will explain the work and the ongoing projects to be done. Please ensure to inform the admin/contact person about the flight ETA and other details, as and when required, prior to the journey. This would avoid any unnecessary loss of time by waiting at the airport. 

A typical volunteer day would be as follows:

  • 8:30 AM: Volunteer leaves for the project destination. The volunteer joins with the local staff and will be oriented about the work to be done.
  • 12.00 PM – 2.00 PM: Lunch break. During this lunch break, you are welcome to eat out or eat at the accommodation.
  • 2.00 PM - 4.00 PM: Work at the project usually ends. The volunteer at this point is free to travel around and explore or do anything at his/her own choice.
  • 7.00 PM: Dinner in the accommodations.

Usual work days are Monday to Friday. And Saturdays and Sundays are off-work days.

Activités de Loisir

During the weekend, volunteers have spare time to relax or take the opportunity to explore the Mombasa locale, such as visiting the beach, planning a fun and entertainment program with the kids, etc. Also, they can tour in and around places like Kilifi, Malindi and so on.

There’s no dearth of places of rich and cultural heritage and the famed African wildlife. Fort Jesus, Haller Park, Jumba ruins are some of the weekend tourist hotspots. Due to the ongoing change of the seasons, it might be suitable for the volunteers to get going for a safari tour, by their own choice.

NOTE- The program coordinator can arrange for sightseeing, only after proper intimation and discussion.

Transfert de l'aéroport Moi International Airport

In case the volunteer is scheduled for Nairobi, there might be additional charges for pickup assistance or a proper navigational guidance for the route to Mombasa.

However, in special cases, there would be a pick-up assistance.

We strongly advise volunteers to save time and money to book a direct or a 1-stop flight to Mombasa (IATA code – MBA) as the final destination and their place of volunteering is the same.

 

After you have registered for the program, please book your flights to arrive at Mombasa International Airport (MBA) in Mombasa. Your airport pick-up is included in your Program Fee.

Logement

Volunteers have the option to stay in the school where you can expect to share a room with other volunteers. Usually, the school doesn’t have much facilities but can be arranged with a ground carpet/mattress. The better and more suitable option is a nearby guesthouse where volunteers have their own apartment with most of the facilities including the Wi-Fi, subject to prior discussion.

The volunteers are strongly advised to get a mosquito repellent and other essentials as the school may not be able to cater to all the needs.

The volunteer house, sort of a bungalow type, is located in Mwtapa, 2 minutes from the project site. There are provisions of electricity and running water; Along with a swimming pool which they are free to use during their stay.

Dortoir Bungalow Chambre double
Aliments & Boissons

Volunteers are provided with three meals per day (breakfast, lunch and dinner), which are served at the accommodation. However, in case of lunch, it may be at one’s own expense or sometimes shared with the school staff.

Breakfast is served around 7-8 am and generally consists of chai (tea), toast, fruit and sometimes mandazi (African donuts). A typical lunch can include vegetables with rice, occasional meat and fruit and is served around 1-2 pm. Dinner is usually served around 7-8 pm and usually includes traditional food, such as ugali, chapati, mboga and irio, alongside meat and vegetables.

Tap water is usually not safe to drink in the project site due to its closeness to the Indian ocean, though bottled water is readily available. However, clean water is available at the accommodation. Volunteers typically drink around half a gallon, or two liters, per day, which adds up to cost around $5-10 per week although drinking water is available at the volunteer house.

Informations sur l'arrivée

No specific start date is necessary as the classes are still ongoing. Work is already underway to renovate and improvise the school at the soonest. It would be useful for the volunteers to make the journey at the soonest and get the maximal experience.

The program orientation begins usually on the day of the volunteer’s arrival or the day after, given the randomly changing flight schedules in lieu of the recent covid19 situation.

  • After you have registered for the program, please book your flights to arrive at Mombasa International Airport (MBA) in Mombasa.
  • Before you arrive, you will be given navigational guidance by a member of the local team and transported to the volunteer accommodation. A pick-up is usually recommended but do note the pick-up fee is not included in the fee.
  • If you are traveling in Kenya prior to your volunteer program, we can arrange for you to be picked up in Mombasa on the day before your program orientation or you can navigate by yourself to the destination. Please make sure to keep in touch with the program coordinator and you will be assisted and guided during the tenure of your tour and stay accordingly. After all, traveling is always smoother when it has a proper communication system.
  • Orientation is given by the admin or a staff member in the school.
  • Orientation begins on the morning of your chosen start date and covers everything you need to know for your volunteer program in Kenya – Introduction to Mombasa, Kenyan Customs, Language Training Details, Rules and Expectations, Safety, Travel Opportunities in Kenya (in and around Mombasa) and Introduction to your project.
