Program Details

The volunteers will normally help children in school teaching languages and organizing other school activities, but also volunteers who are able to teach subjects like Maths, Science, Geography and social skills are able also to work in our project.
During the evenings, the volunteers also have to teach languages in the community library. Apart from teaching at the schools, we have another community project of planting trees and distributing them to the schools, villages and involving in the whole process of growing and taking care of it. We also need volunteers to help us in this project.


Activities & Shift

The worldpackers can sleep at the host families or at the volunteers house. Both of them have private or shared rooms, its will depend on the volunteers choice (if they want to share a room or want their own private room).
We provide breakfast, lunch and dinner for volunteers who are staying at the volunteer house or at the host families. For this, we ask for a small contribution of $10 (dollars) per day to help to cover some of the expenses including accommodation and meals at the host families.
