We need volunteers!

If you are looking for an opportunity to contribute to a school in an authentic African village, look no further!  

You do not need to be a teacher to come and help us at Simoonga Thandizani Trust school!

All we need is your open heart and some skills that can benefit the children and/or the operation of our school. Volunteers are free to stay with us for their comfortable period of time. The school kindly requests volunteers to help us with a small contribution of $8 per night for accommodation. This contribution goes towards children's education. Related to the coordination of the meals, free Zambian lunch is provided to volunteers on school days while breakfast and dinner are organized by volunteers. 

Volunteers are very welcome to fundraise for the school through family and friends.

Volunteers work alongside teachers in the classrooms and when doing co-curricular activities. The school day is from 07:30 to 15:30; mornings for teaching and learning, and afternoons for co-curricular programs, such as sports, art, chess, singing and dancing and eco.

Weekends are free for volunteers to do personal activities such as the Mighty Victoria Falls Tour, game park, museum, river cruise, shopping and visiting local markets.

What is a day at Simoonga school like?

Our school day begins at 07:30 and finishes at 15:30. Break time is from 10:00 to 10:30 and lessons then resume until 12:30. After lunch the kids go to the playground where you can join them if you want. Lessons then start again at 14:00 until 15:30.

As a volunteer you dedicate your time to the school and the children. Friday after school, Saturday and Sunday are free time. This is a great opportunity for you to take part in the many sightseeing activities in and around Livingstone and to interact with the locals.

We can't wait to meet you!
