The school therefore offers formal learning in the mornings while there are non-formal education courses in the afternoon (dress making, etc). These courses are primarily focusing on the provision of practical vocational skills to enable the children and youth to gain employment on the job market later on. Part of the students live in the school while others or coming from outside for the classes.

Volunteer duties:

• Assisting in the preparation and serving of meals at the school

• Assisting in teaching (Maths, English, science)

• Using sports, dancing, painting activities to develop creativity in children

• Assisting in providing vocational training courses

Duration of the project: 1 to 12 months

Arrival and orientation: There will be a 3-day orientation seminar for new volunteers including Nairobi city introduction. The orientation starts on the first Monday of every month. It is recommended that volunteers arrive at least one day before the orientation starts.
