You can help in one of the following ways

One of our volunteers helping with maths.

1. Help in the classroom

Qualified teachers are extremely welcome here. Your valuable expertise can truly impact and transform the lives of the children. Regardless of whether or not you’re a qualified teacher you are still welcome. You can lead or just assist in one of the classrooms. You can share your experiences with the class and certainly both students and teachers will learn a great deal from you.

Even if you’d just prefer to assist in classes, our class size is quite large, most contain 40 to 50 children which makes it very hard to manage alone so your help is always very much welcomed.

 

After school or during the break you can help our little ones practice their reading, help with math or even read short stories to them.

You can share your language with them, do arts and crafts or simply play. Maybe you know a couple of cool magic tricks, a new game the children may not have ever seen or a dance you could teach them.

All of your skills and ideas are warmly appreciated, so feel free to share these with us.

 

 

2. Help with fundraising

You can also share your experience in the area of fundraising and help us increase the popularity of the school which hopefully leads to more donations allowing us to continue to support the local community.

Our volunteer Lisa for example came up with the idea of making baskets with greeting cards, that were placed in some hostels in Livingstone for people to buy.

Another idea was to capture and develop pictures of the children, that were then placed in some other lodges and hotels. 

3. General help

We are seeking to improve all areas of school life so your help is appreciated in any area you feel comfortable in... cooking, cleaning, permaculture, rennovation etc. It is up to you!
