Teaching in Kenya-Maasai from US$250

Company : International Volunteer HQ (IVHQ)
Activities: Community Volunteer Projects / Teaching
Country: Kenya
Location : Maasailand
Duration: 1 week to 6 months
Approx Costs: 250 to 2500 $ Dollars (US)

With the introduction of free primary school education in Kenya, the Kenyan Government was faced with a dilemma. A large amount of students entitled to an education and a comparative lack of teachers.

Teaching at a Maasai community school is an experience like no other. Giraffes often wander freely around the school grounds and it is no big deal to have some wild animal burrow holes through the school fields overnight.

Typical subjects taught include – English, Math, Science, Social Studies, Art and Physical Education.

School in Kenya runs for three terms a year (Term One – January to March, Term Two – May to July, Term Three – September to November). There are short breaks between these terms in the months of April, August and December during which time volunteers can take a break, travel, engage in tourist activities such as safari, take tutorials for senior students, or participate in another placement.

Volunteers DO NOT need to be a qualified or experienced teacher.
