Make a REAL difference in Uganda with Education Support Program
- Volunteer Opportunity posted by Love Volunteers
On this essential education program, volunteers are placed in a school in Uganda which has high levels of staff shortages as a result of limited funding and inadequate resourcing. These schools are also usually attended by orphaned and underprivileged children. For these reasons teaching volunteers in Uganda are desperately needed here. The teaching which volunteers in Uganda undertake is very varied and can cover one or more of a wide range of academic subjects, as well as practical vocational skills. The majority of these skills help students to improve their career prospects. Volunteers play an invaluable role in teaching children and supporting their educational needs, helping them to increase their chances of higher levels of education, and thus the chance for future employment and a brighter future. Volunteers can plan and teach lessons in subjects such as English, Maths, Science, Physical Education, Health, HIV awareness and any other subject that the volunteer has knowledge and interest in. Volunteers can also plan fun activities and sports programs for recess times and after schools.
Goals of this Project:
- Provide English language skills and teach other subjects to vulnerable children in Uganda
- Teach and interact with marginalized children in Africa
- Improve the future prospects of some of Uganda’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
