Volunteers on the teaching program help with the teaching of different subjects in Kenyan elementary and high schools. This may include mathematics, science, geography, social sciences, history, business education, English, art and music. Volunteer teachers in Kenya are not required to have teaching experience.
Our volunteers work in schools with students who have harsh economic backgrounds and with orphans. Most of the schools receive little to no government funding so are very poorly resourced. Volunteers need to be prepared to teach lessons with the bare minimum equipment. Our schools in Kenya are also starting to develop their own sustainable projects such as gardens, farming and jewellery making and volunteers can also become involved in these projects as well.
It is also possible for volunteers to help with the local community sports program which runs after school from 4pm – 7pm. Please note that the dates of Kenyan school holidays are in April and August and from mid-November until early-January. During these periods volunteers can participate in the holiday programs.
