Description:

Teaching and support for secondary school students
Limuru 1 - 12 months

Volunteer project: The project will support a secondary school in Maai Mahiu, Limuru County. The school was founded to provide children from poor families who cannot afford school fees the possibility to attend secondary education. The school therefore offers formal learning in the mornings while there are non-formal education courses in the afternoon (dress making, etc). These courses are primarily focusing on the provision of practical vocational skills to enable the children and youth to gain employment on the job market later on. Part of the students live in the school while others or coming from outside for the classes.

Volunteer duties:
• Assisting in the preparation and serving of meals at the school
• Assisting in teaching (Maths, English, science)
• Using sports, dancing, painting activities to develop creativity in children
• Assisting in providing vocational training courses

Duration of the project: 1 to 12 months

Qualifications:

Participants should have a positive attitude, be ready to adopt and enjoy simple living conditions, be flexible and patient.


Training:

There will be a 3-day orientation seminar for new volunteers including Nairobi city introduction. The orientation starts on the first Monday of every month. It is recommended that volunteers arrive at least one day before the orientation starts.


Benefits:

A volunteer experience may give you ideas or a push in deciding your professional aspirations - one of the most important and difficult decisions one should make in life. It can make stronger your motivation or give you additional inspiration in what you are studying or working. And most important, by being a volunteer you gain the hands-on experience you will hardly get at lectures or at the office desk. In a workcamp you can have such an involving and inspiring time!
After successful participation CADIP issues a certificate for the completed volunteer hours.
