12/16 week Community Volunteer Project in rural Kenya - working with children, sports, drama, music & more!

Pays d’action: Kenya, Afrique
Type d’activité: Sport, Enseignement
Volunteer in pairs in rural villages on the Kenya coast, not far from Diani for 12 weeks, with an optional 4 weeks of independent travel time at the end. It is a wonderful opportunity to experience rural Kenyan life and ideal for those ready for a challenge. Work with children to improve English; as well as introducing music, art, drama and sports at a local school.

Description du projet et du rôle des volontaires

Set in villages not far from Diani, you will have the opportunity to work with children to improve English (reading, writing and spoken), coach sports, organise after school clubs for art, drama, PE, music or even run a school magazine or a talent show! You can choose to run lessons or small sessions on your own or with your volunteer partner at a rural government primary or secondary school. If you would prefer to work on a one to one basis with children so you can focus your attention on those that need that extra bit of help, that be arranged. You tell us what areas you would like to help with and we will make it happen.

The more you put into community life and getting to know the locals, the more you will understand about this amazing country. You will have the opportunity to build skills and in particular skills that can be transferred to the workplace, for example thinking on your feet, dealing with pressure, problem-solving, overcoming challenges, independence, responsibility and many more.

Spare time is spent preparing your lessons with your volunteer partner, marking books, or with the other volunteers and your new friends (neighbours and teachers). We encourage volunteers to get to know the locals – the teachers could even invite you to dinner.

The volunteer project is followed by an optional 4 week period of independent group travel in East Africa, including 24/7 back up from our local representatives.
