Primary Education in Zimbabwe
Due to private funding, the schools have a limited number of teachers, with an ever-growing number of students – because of this, the school’s focus is purely on the academic side of things. Volunteers at the schools allow for greater individual attention to be given to the students, as well as the opportunity to offer extra-mural activities such as sport, music, and art – these do not exist when there are no volunteers at the school.
This program is designed for
At least 18 years old, creative and hard worker and must have a go-get attitude
Volunteers placed at this school, not only lessen the workload of the teachers but more importantly get to teach the children about the outside world – many of them have never ventured very far outside this village.
