The program contributes to the academic development of the school and provision of quality education to orphans
Nursery and primary schools level provide classes to children aged 3yrs-14yrs. A volunteer can help with teaching English and other subjects. Teaching experience is not required. You can begin as a teaching assistant and then work in small groups with children in need of extra attention.
School terms vary from year to year but are approximately as
follows: February 1 to April 30, and May 20 to August 30, September 15 to early
December. Volunteers can assist with the physical upkeep of the school;
painting, decorating, mending desks etc. Most important volunteers should try
to develop activities/programs that can be sustained in the future. Prior
teaching experience is not required; volunteer simply need an open mind, caring
spirit and a compassionate nature.
The objective of this program is to contribute to the academic development of the school in order to provide the best opportunity for the orphans to receive quality education. Volunteers support the local teachers; encourage students to learn and play and instill pride in their schooling.
Volunteers live in the beautiful town of Mukono in a family run guesthouse or with the host family in Kalagi, just close to our project. Volunteers will have their own bedroom and shared bathroom. Accommodation is basic but clean and comfortable.
The hard work volunteers put in during the week undoubtedly warrants some fun and relaxation during evening free time and on the weekends. During the week we organize a variety of activities for volunteers in the evenings.
