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.
