Teaching English & Mathematics to Pupils Afterschool

Type of Work:            

Volunteers and community members will give support and guide learners academically in teaching English and Mathematics. They will also ensure learners are adequately fed during the programme and establish the academic needs of the students and more appropriate interventions (Social, economic, community, family, religious etc.)

This is an exciting project as volunteers have opportunity to work with different communities and interact with children after school and have also the opportunity to be hosted by individual family members for their period of stay in the country.

The camp will require volunteers to be involved in different activities such as building up learning activities which will be used when the volunteers will meet the children from 8am to 4pm daily activities.
