Volunteers are placed in either community schools or orphan helping schools. Sometimes we collaborate with the government to give volunteers to public schools in very poor places. The teaching program is offered in


     Rural areas of Kenya

We have partner schools in very remote areas in the northern parts of Kenya, the vast slums of Nairobi and other major towns, and the general rural Kenya. Many of the schools that we work with are understaffed and are always in need of a helping hand.

There are three school terms in a year. First term runs from January to the first week of April where the pupils take a three week recess and reopen in May. Second term runs from May to the first week of August and then a recess for three weeks. Third term runs from September to November and then the children will break for Christmas holidays. You should note that if you've applied for the Teaching project during the school holidays, you will be placed on another project in Kenya, such as Childcare Work, for the duration of the holidays.

What Does The Work Entail?

The volunteer does not need to be a qualified or experienced teacher to teach. Volunteers teach in the following fields:
