Nerissa Perumal (Kim), from South Africa, teaching in Tanzania.
Volunteer in Tanzania in our teaching project. This is a project that requires a lot of dedication and enthusiasm. You will have the opportunity of supporting a nursery/primary school (children aged 3-11) or a secondary school (teenagers aged 11-16), both located within at only five minutes walking distance from the hostel. Everyday you will be dealing with 60 children between the ages 3 and 16 depending on the school you choose. They will be very excited for you to teach them several subjects, supporting the teacher or teaching by yourself. You will see from the very beginning that they are passionate about learning. Moreover, both childrens and teachers, will be very grateful if you support them with extracurricular activities and sports on a regular basis in the evenings.
It is advisable that you learn a few words and phrases in Swahili, which will be very helpful and appreciated by the children. Bringing teaching aids (flash cards, picture books, alphabet and number games, maps) with you is highly recommended, and needed. We promise you that it will be an experience that you will never forget!
* Schools in Tanzania are closed for 2 weeks in late April, during the month of August and December to January.
