Volunteer Uganda: Children’s Education (Bulenga)

Volunteer Uganda: Children’s Education (Bulenga)

Volunteer Uganda in a village school which has limited means and supplies. Teaching experience is not required. Children attend school without a separation of ages, so you can expect 5-6 year olds with 12 year olds in the same class. You can begin working with some children, teaching English and basic math. Native English speakers are in high demand and volunteers are anxiously welcome at the school.

School terms vary from year to year but semesters dates are approximately:

  • February 1 to April 30
  • May 20 to August 30
  • September 15 to November 15

Volunteers can assist with the physical upkeep of the school; painting, decorating, mending desks etc. Most important volunteers should try to develop activities  that can be sustained in the future.
