Teach English – Make A Difference!
Getting involved with Africa Initiative for the Needy Uganda (AINU) is a fantastic opportunity for those who want to contribute to our English teaching programme, in Uganda.
As a volunteer, you will have the opportunity to work on a range of educational schemes, gaining a valuable insight to the many challenges faced by communities living in and around the area where you will be placed, while making a real difference to the lives of some of the poorest people on the planet.
Working closely with the dedicated team of long-term volunteers and staff, you will receive an all-round experience in the workings of a small but well established international charity, gaining vital skills for a future career in development or teaching, acquiring credit towards a college or university course, or simply sharing your time with those in need of it most, and making friends for life.
AINU offers rewarding long-term and short-term volunteer placements, from 2 weeks up to 6 months, or a year. For placements over 4 weeks we ask that you are TEFL qualified, or have substantial prior teaching experience. If you do not already hold a TEFL qualification you could be eligible for volunteering with AINU.
Any person aged 18 or over may apply to become a Short-Term volunteer as all required skills are taught. Although being in good physical shape is important, the ability to exhibit tolerance, patience and a good sense of humour when things get tough is just as essential.
