Simoonga Thandizani Trust was set up in 2010, with 5 preschool children and 1 teacher. The school has expanded in size over the years and now runs from preschool to grade 7-with an enrollment of 380 pupils. The school provides free education, including lunch from Monday to Friday to all the pupils. The pupils who belong to the school are from Simoonga Village and the surrounding communities. Most of the children who learn at Simoonga Thandizani Trust School come from poor homes, since their parents are either unemployed or if employed, they do not earn enough money to support their families. The school is looking for volunteers who are interested in teaching, environment care, health and nutrition, sports, computer and internet, art (fine and performing). Simoonga Thandizani Trust School is keen on having volunteers with a variety of skills and experiences that they can give and share with the school. Our school is registered with WorkAway, a volunteer organization that has so far sent us 2 groups of volunteers since the beginning of this year. OUR VOLUNTEERING PROGRAMS ARE AS FOLLOWS All Our programs are free. Kindly note that these per person rates includes - Tented Accommodation - Breakfast ( Continental ) for the stipulated duration - Lunch for the stipulated duration - Dinner for the stipulated duration - Utilities( electricity, water, security) For a group of five and above , a discount can be worked out.
We have 16 employers ( 10 teachers, 2 cookers, 2 office workers, 1 housekeeping, 1 Director). When the volunteer stay here we offer one housekeeping (Mônica) to help directly the volunteer (making food with charcoal, do laundry, or just having one good conversation). The school is situated in the community with affable norms , values the unity and give utmost hospitality to it visitors.
Una experiencia increible, la escuela esta cerca de Livingstone en un pueblito lleno de gente muy buena y con ganas de trabajar en comunidad. Desde mi punto de vista todos trabajan con los niños pero hace falta ayudar tambien al desarrollo profesional de los profesores y personal administrativo que ponen toda su actitud, yo tuve oportunidad de dar workshops y hacer un team building para los trabajadores de la escuela y estuvo muy bueno! todos aprendimos mucho! Los niños son un amor, la pase genial y la comida muy rica tambien. Edwin el dueño es una excelente persona y un gran amigo!!! GRACIAS
