Volunteer at a rustic, community school on the outskirts of Livingstone. This school, although lacking in proper materials and trained teachers, is free of charge for children in the village. Most the children are orphans, or from very poor families who cannot afford to send their children elsewhere.
The school has over 200 students, mainly between 3-14 years old. Volunteer’s will each basics like writing and reading English. Help the older students with lessons on math, science, perhaps sports activities after school. Volunteer teachers should be enthusiastic and open to a rural village setting.
Expect to volunteer Monday to Friday and work alongside the local teacher to create lessons plans based on your strengths and ideas.
This is a great opportunity to support a community program, be immersed with a local host family
And visit a wonderful site of Victoria Falls on your free weekend.
