Having English is a chance to escape a life of poverty.  Having a strong education can open up many career opportunities.  Your individualized support and English language lessons will provide opportunities for future employment and help to reinforce attendance.

Village schools, those that do not have an English teacher, welcome volunteers in their schools.   Our volunteers will work side by side the local teacher in a local primary or secondary school.   A syllabus will be provided, and your input is welcome as well. 

Volunteers’ lessons will focus on grammar, proper pronunciation and basic spelling. You will also plan and organize afterschool activities like soccer, basketball and other organized sports. Spanish speaking volunteers are preferred.  Language Immersion lesson can be arranged in the afternoon.
