If you love teaching and being with children, experiencing Zimbabwe as a community teacher is something you will really enjoy! English is a language used for communication worldwide, so by helping to teach these children you are giving them an invaluable skill that broadens their opportunities. Meet a new generation of eager students ready to learn.
Teaching in local schools in the Rusape township will not only help the students broaden their minds, it will also be a fulfilling experience for you! Friendly school teachers will provide guidance and lesson plans for you based on their curriculum, but you will also have the chance to take part in informal group activities involving games, all with the goal of improving the local children’s English.
Each day during this project will run along the same sort of course. You will start with breakfast at 08:00 before heading to classes at 09:00 where you’ll teach English and arrange other activities, like music, singing lessons, games, arts & crafts, sports, conversations exercises and grammar exercises.
At 12:00 you have lunch and some time to relax,and then at 13:30 you will begin teaching classes again. At 16:00 you will take time to prepare lessons and activities for the next day alongside the local coordinator.
At 18:00 you will finish your day for dinner and then you will be free to spend the evening relaxing and exploring the local area.
Saturday & Sunday:
During their free time, volunteers will be able to experience the local area. The weekends provide the perfect time to see the sights and taxis are available to take you to see the landmarks. The locals and support staff will be available and can give advice and guidance on the best experiences for you.
