What we do
Our project works with four private schools and we now partner with 15 local schools both primary and secondary.
- We give out scholastic materials (books, pens, bags, uniform etc.) and school fees to needy children attending to local schools both primary and secondary. This is done through selling the hand made crafts (by the children) which we sell at our office and donations from friends.
- We give psychological and moral support to children especially those from humble families to give them hope for the future.We go in the communities giving inspirational talks and success stories of Education in the local schools
- We host volunteers (teachers/ educational psychologists) to our partner schools
Are you enthusiastic about early childhood development? Do you love kids and want to teach them about the world? Our project works with four private, 3 government primary and 2 secondary schools in Bwindi area that cater exclusively to the education, housing and feeding of needy children and orphans. However, local education is largely rote learning. Come and feed their hungry little brains!
Volunteers are involved in academics, arts and crafts, structured play, music/singing, sports, and public health. The main focus is to provide children with a loving, creative, interactive environment in which to flourish. Volunteers choose which subjects and age groups to teach upon arrival. They work independently to plan lessons using government curriculum and textbooks. Please be aware that kids come with only pencils and exercise books. Bring any further tools or materials you wish to use.
No teaching qualifications are required although volunteers should be reliable, organized and creative.
- We give career guidance by helping students make right education career choices.Our staff move around all schools (primary and secondary) in the Bwindi area to guide students to make right and affordable career choices through telling them inspirational talks and success stories of some people they know.
