Do you have skills to help children who have difficulties in learning ... Then join RUDEC After/Summer school program and become a change maker.
RUDEC is seeking volunteers who wish to teach in rural Cameroonian communities. If you are interested, you can contribute teaching in a school and doing tutoring lessons (1 and 2), or simply doing tutoring lessons (2). Volunteers could teach in the school for varying lengths of time, between 1 month and 1 year (or more).
DURING SCHOOL PERIOD TIME
1. RUDEC SCHOOL PROGRAM
At the moment, the actual rural schools are in a situation of being understaffed, under-resourced and overcrowded. Class size oscillates between 70 and 100 children at a commonplace. There is a lack of basic equipment such as desks and chalk. They also have shortage of books, papers, textbooks and all schools supplies. Many teachers are overstretched so poor children are not supported and often get left behind.
Volunteers are needed to work in schools, with children up to the age of 13, teaching in a range of subjects (Mathematics, French, English, Environmental Education, Hygiene and Sciences). This program is addressed to all children in the school.
2. TEACHING ORPHANS AND UNDER PRIVILEGED CHILDREN
This program aims to assist children who cannot cope well under normal classroom conditions. Volunteer Teachers would work with these children to provide them with additional support. This program also caters for children of mixed ages, but they will be taught together, in a dedicated classroom environment more suitable for their particular needs. This program is organized for after school; from 3 to 5 from Monday to Friday. Volunteers are needed to provide after-school tuition to children of all ages, in a variety of subjects as in the school. Those classes are only addressed to the children in RUDEC’s Orphan Project.
DURING HOLIDAYS (summer, Christmas and Holy Week)
If you wish to volunteer during these months, RUDEC has access to some classrooms in a school, which can be used to do a summer school (with the idea of reinforcing subjects, and also play games). This has been done before with quite a good outcome, but it has very little resources and is organized by the volunteers themselves (information about previous summers can be provided for guidance).
Volunteer will have to visit other areas of Cameroon on weekends so that they could enoy our culture and traditions.
