SB Overseas is looking for volunteers to join us in Lebanon for a period of two months, to teach English and other subjects to women and children in two of our education & empowerment centres for refugees in Lebanon. We are looking in particular for volunteers who can join us in July, September, and November 2019.

The programme includes a pure volunteering branch, as well as a second branch where volunteers can combine their teaching work with lessons in Arabic that they can take from our staff.

 The children need the remedial education provided in our centres (including the English lessons taught by our volunteers) to pass entry tests for the Lebanese public education system. Without access to public education, they risk missing out on an education permanently, and becoming a "lost generation".

 The women in our centres take English courses at their own request, as they consider competence in English to be an important life-skill, as well as a source of self-confidence and self-reliance.

 This is a fantastic opportunity for anyone who wants to do serious work in aid of refugees, and to see how the response to the crisis is being organised in the field.

 To apply, and for more information, go to http://sboverseas.org/volunteer/lebanon/, or to our Facebook group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/SBVolunteer.
