There are two main objectives at this project. Firstly education, and secondly, trying to offer to better future for under-developed children from poor and remote areas. Much of the school has been built with the help of previous volunteers and local tradesmen, However, the work here is far from done.
Teaching time with the students is divided into two shifts, the first beginning in the morning from 8am – 11am. The afternoon shift is from 2pm to 5pm. We advise you to do one teaching shift, combined with some construction each day, although we also believe that you should work mostly where you believe your skill set is best utilized.
There are two main objectives at this project. Firstly education, and secondly, trying to offer to better future for under-developed children from poor and remote areas. As well as simply offering this education, we are also trying to promote and encourage this among children who are not currently receiving any schooling.
Much of the school has been built with the help of previous volunteers and local tradesmen, However, the work here is far from done. Volunteers are able to continue to assist in the construction of a new pathway, toilets, as well as building walls and renovation of the nearby area.
We are also set to work on some "educational art", so if you have any artistic talent, your input would be very gratefully received! We would like several walls to display images and sketches of participants' home countries. Examples would be flags and various other cultural symbols. We feel this will be a nice way of reflecting the work done by volunteers of the past six years.
The core focus of the teaching project will depend upon the needs of the school at that time. The main role played by participants will be:
- Teaching English on a non-formal basis
- Creating activities for the students, including workshops for cultural exchange
- Arts & Handicrafts activities
- Sports after classes
- Environmental awareness activities (Clean Up the World)
- Construction and renovation of school and local community
The project is not available during holidays, which are usual a week in April and a week in September. If your programme falls within any of the holidays, you may join the Community Construction Programme for that time.
