Volunteer Opportunity description

Although Ghana is an English speaking country, many school children cannot communicate effectively in the English language. This is a common phenomenon in both rural and urban areas of Ghana, hence the need to recruit and place volunteers in communities where there are simply insufficient teachers (or teacher's who have inadequate English) to cater for the number of children. The project seeks to stimulate the interest in school children to study and speak proper English whilst at the same time offering our foreign volunteers a unique opportunity to learn and experience the Ghanaian culture. Music, math and arts are also incorporated into our program and volunteers are encouraged to bring resources that can assist with the teaching.

Kids are attracted to school by the presence of volunteers, and your presence also is a proven moral booster for parents and the limited teachers as well as a great inspiration for children. Inexperienced and experienced volunteers can teach vocabulary, assist with pronunciation and support the kids as they practice speaking English. This is a type of program which involves a lot of creativity and patience.

The kids are between the ages of 2-5 years and are just beginning to pick up the local and English language. You need patience to deal with them and you must be someone who love kids and at the same time caring. The benefit of teaching this age group is that it helps eliminate the fear and shyness often felt by children regarding speaking. .
