You know two things: You have a class full of smiling, warm-hearted kids and they are eager to learn. They welcome you with singing and dancing in the morning and hold your hand when leaving. We offer volunteer teaching or sports/skills coaching opportunities at 4 primary schools in Fort Portal, Uganda for which we have built classrooms, water harvesting systems and run scholarship programmes You will be expected to assist the local teachers and also to take individual classes, especially practical lessons and activity sessions.
After 10 years experience in building schools and health facilities in Uganda's Western region, we have witnessed that education is the key element for breaking the circle of poverty, empowering women and improving health. Education is the great engine of personal development. It is through education that the daughter of a peasant can become a doctor, that the son of a mineworker can become the head of mine, that a child of farmworkers can become the president of a great nation.
Our children are very interested in other cultures and really benefit from the volunteers we bring in. Bringing any of your skills: whether in arts and crafts, music, sports, English or any other subject or activity, will enrich their lives.
