YAAPHA

Teach English

Volunteer English teachers are needed at this placement to provide English lessons to children at Pasua Primary School.

YAAPHA's mission is to unite, lead, represent and serve both young female and male people in groups for their social, economic and cultural empowerment through the development of productive education and business ventures. We want to arouse their ambition so that they can reach economic independence and contribute to the community development.

Volunteer English teachers are needed at this placement to provide English lessons to children at Pasua Primary school in Moshi and Tabora. Learning how to speak English is a very important skill set for a child in order to obtain many of the more desirable and better paying jobs in future.

A volunteer English teacher who is willing to help these children to improve their English skills would be helping to increase the chances of the children finding employment in the years to come and consequently a brighter future.

Currently there are only 2 teachers at Pasua Nursery School in Moshi and 1 teacher at Urambo Nursery School in In Tabora Region who are able to speak English. This is a challenge for the organization because the children are not being forced to practice their English, therefore their English speaking skills are very limited. A volunteer English teacher would not only give English lessons but would also encourage conversations in English at other times within the class so all could benefit -- an example would be at meal time.

The School has 1050 children who are enrolled. We still require additional assistance in helping to make sure that the school is clean and well kept. There are three mamas that work at the schools who help the children and cook, all performing still further different tasks. Only one of which is a full-time staff, as the organization can not sustain more than one full-time person.

Teach English at this placement and work with as assistance of the local teachers.


Activity Description for this project are as follows:

Teach English

Most of the English teaching at this placement would be informal. The English practiced would be during games or other after school activities that you had developed. However, for the mamas, structured English lessons during the day would be appreciated.

Proposal/Grant Research & Writing

YAAPHA can always use more assistance; we would appreciate volunteers who are able to research opportunities for them to receive grants and assist them in the writing of these. Updating the information on their website and brochures that are circulated in town would also be of great assistance.

Organize Games

A volunteer English teacher would be expected to develop and implement games for the children not in school that would teach the English language in a fun and enjoyable manner. These games may involve singing or dancing activities and should encourage the children to interact with each other. The goal is to create a warm and happy learning environment for the children.
