Program Details

Projects
-We are constructing grade 6 now and currently we need a lot of volunteers to help moving rocks, bricks,sand, cement and digging hole for building.
-Computer Lab: We are starting a computer lab and will need volunteers to help teach computer literacy and computer skills to the children
-Gardening: We are starting a gardening project to teach the children about agriculture, horticulture and science. The items produced from the garden will also be used in the cooking classes.
-Cooking classes: A kitchen is being added to the school to teach the children about hygiene, nutrition and cooking. We are interested in having volunteers sponsor this project and consider offering to teach the preparation of a dish from their country. We are excited about this activity as it will not only provide good meals for the children, it will expose them to a variety of international foods.


Activities & Shift

Whilst staying with my family, we welcome any help you can give. Previous volunteers have participated in many different ways. Most commonly, people who visit help out at the school by assisting teachers, teaching classes, and running creative activities in the library. However, volunteer involvement is not limited to that. In the past, volunteers have designed, planned and acquired materials for projects to improve the infrastructure of the school, including painting projects, rebuilding old paths and gates and improving the electrical wiring. Other volunteer occupations have included teacher training initiatives, helping with grant writing and building our equine therapy program for our three students with Down Syndrome.
