Teaching English, Maths, Science & Sports to disadvantaged children in Malindi town. The school is lacking in teachers and learning materials
Our teaching program entails working with rural marginalized schools in Kenya and in this case, Seedlings Junior School in Malindi, with over 180 children with only 7 teachers. The infrastructure is semi permanent and being a community school, its difficult to sustain staff thus students suffer from education inconsistency
Free-time activities are not limited tot he above. They also include home visiting the students where they live to see their conditions and also meet their guardians.
Malindi being a coastal town attracts tourists from all over the world who enjoy water sports along the sea. Therefore, because of this, most water sporting activities can be costly and it is thus advisable to also refer to the host family or school whenever the volunteer wants to do such sports in order to access them at a good price.
Despite the above fact, there are also public beaches for swimming and basking which are free of charge.
Over the weekend, the volunteer can also visit Mombasa city which is 2 hours away using public transport.
