Teach on Zanzibar!

Pays d’action: Tanzanie, Afrique
Type d’activité: Enseignement
Help teach at various pre-schools or primary schools on the beautiful tropical island of Zanzibar. With its unique influences and very chilled life style Zanzibar offers an unique experience to work with the local community and assist at one of the schools. The children love to learn more English, improve their Maths skills or learn about History and other subjects.

Description du projet et du rôle des volontaires

Not far from the beautiful coast of Tanzania, you will find the magical island archipelago of Zanzibar, where time seems to stand still and people still live the traditional way. Zanzibar has been the entrance of eastern Africa for centuries and it was here where most slaves were sold; and Indian, Chinese and Arabic merchants would arrive to trade their wares and buy spices, ivory and slaves. The history of Zanzibar has created a unique mixture of Indian, African and Arabic influences which can be seen in its people, food, culture and building styles.

The main city Stone Town is a labyrinth of alleys and walkways and takes you back centuries. Stone Town and the surrounding villages offer volunteers the unique opportunity to enjoy the white beaches, clear blue water, coconut palm trees and the lively Zanzibar culture and food. The island is a popular backpacker’s destination.

The primary schools we work with educate over 2 000 children, and due to the lack of schools on Zanzibar, the schools have 2 sessions a day and offers a morning school and afternoon school. Children from 6 - 18 years old receive their education in open classrooms with barely enough benches or chairs for each child. Circumstances are basic and the extra help from volunteers is much needed.

English and maths are two subjects that the schools have challenges in. The number of pupils is big, English is not always spoken by teachers and facilities are basic. You can make a change here by supporting the school and its principal by offering assistance in teaching English. You can also offer sports and games after school hours, as well as simply explaining your own culture to the children. Help make this most important time of these children’s lives as positive and educational as possible.

In general there are a variety of needs and volunteers should keep in mind that you come to volunteer to help where it is needed most. So be flexible and open-minded to any changes, or other activities that might need your support a little bit more than the ones you prefer. There is plenty of fun to be had while you work!
