Make a REAL difference in Zambia with Education Support Program
- Volunteer Opportunity posted by Love Volunteers
This wonderful project was created with the goal of helping to improve the English speaking abilities of children in Mwandi and assist teachers with other subjects and activities such as mathematics, science, geography, social sciences, history, business studies, art and music. English is an essential language in the area, and important for securing future employment. An ability to speak English is hugely beneficial to youth, allowing them to pursue further education opportunities and to seek employment where English is an advantage. Working as a volunteer teacher helps children learn a tool that is vital to their future success. Love Volunteers place participants in primary or high school’s that are extremely underfunded and understaffed. Volunteers are greatly appreciated and make a huge difference to children’s learning.
Goals of this Project:
- Provide English language skills to children in impoverished Zambia
- Teach and interact with marginalized children in Africa
- Improve the future prospects of some of Zambia’s most impoverished children, and help them to break the poverty cycle
- Expose volunteers and children to different people and cultures
- Housing Available
- Language/Cultural Support Available
- International Volunteers
