The majority of Kenyans want to improve their children's English skills but most Kenyan rural schools lack qualified English teachers. With this high demand for English fluency, your volunteer contribution in teaching English is greatly appreciated by the Kenyan people. Teaching English in Kenya is very challenging; however, our knowledgeable staff will provide you with a proper orientation and teaching materials, including a textbook, for your class. You will be teaching a group of 20-35 in a class and most students already understand basic English. Our volunteers work to strengthen students' conversational and pronunciation skills.

Our postings vary from formal to informal English teaching programs in Kenya. You can put your English skills to use with oral practice and games or teaching math, social science, health science or other subjects in English.

We are inviting applicants from all over the worl to come and joing in this good work.
