Teaching English in Uganda

Teaching English in Uganda

Volunteer teaching English in Uganda for young students at school. Since education in Uganda is considered a privilege, the young boys and girls will greatly benefit from you teaching native English to them. Though tuition is free (for up to four children and all orphans), families are sometimes unable to afford other fees or expenses, such as for equipment and books. While quality education for both boys and girls is crucial in reducing poverty and promoting gender equality, many schools in rural areas are struggling with overcrowded classes, shortage of skilled teachers, shortage of resources such as text books and support materials. Hence illiteracy rates  among children of poorest families and communities are increasing and unemployment later in life can be a consequence.

Teaching is an immense privilege, inspiring young minds and seeing them grow can be one of the most exciting things a person can ever do and IKPVA –Uganda has a great range of volunteering projects where you can develop your experience and use your skills to help children in Uganda.

Teaching at a School in Uganda

Working alongside with local teachers in Uganda

Volunteers in this field work alongside local teachers or on their own; at preschool, they teach basic English skills, and carry out basic childcare duties; at primary and secondary, they teach core subjects, such as English, mathematics, science, and can initiate extra-curricular activities after school such as art, music, theatre, sports or gardening; they may also carryout small and manageable community groups or individual tutoring outside class for adults. Participants in our Volunteer in Uganda programs should not count on teaching resources being available and many classes may have large numbers but it is a challenge that is highly rewarding. Please note, volunteers do not need to be a qualified or experienced teacher to participate on the Teaching project.
