Volunteer opportunity posted by: Volunteer4Free Kenya
Posted on: February 4, 2013
This is Jay, from Volunteer4Free Kenya. We are a free volunteer program based out of Nairobi, Kenya, giving volunteers an opportunity to make a difference in Africa and save money in the process.
We are currently seeking volunteers to help teach English to primary school pupils in Nairobi's Soweto slums. Soweto is one of the most neglected slums in all of Kenya, with the problems of poverty and lack of education characterizing the slum. However, by helping the youth of the slum learn to read and understand English, we are making a step toward solving the second problem (lack of education), which should in turn also help overcome the first problem (poverty).
Volunteers with our program will use a few basic resources to help class one to class four pupils increase their vocabulary, and learn basic grammar. The program is supervised by coordinators with over seven years of experience in hosting international volunteers in Africa.
Fluency in English, and a background check (CRB) are the only requirements for participation. And best of all, there are no participation fees (though donations are accepted for volunteers wanting to contribute to the program).
We also offer budget accommodation from roughly $30 a week. (Volunteers must look after their own food and transport independently.)

Thanks for caring enough to volunteer.
