Do you have a passion for teaching and working with children?

The aim of this program is to support children from families who were affected by genocide and those from some of Rwanda’s poorest families, through the provision of school fees, school materials, and education. Love Volunteers partners with a charity that ensures that each child has a school uniform, shoes and access to organised education. Volunteers are desperately needed to both assist local teachers in the classroom, and to take their own classes. Subjects can be taught depending on each volunteer’s skills and interests, however teaching English is the main priority here. There is also an after school homework club where help is needed to improve the students school performance by offering additional homework support and exam preparation. Volunteers play an invaluable role in teaching children and supporting their educational needs, helping them to increase their chances of higher levels of education, and thus the chance for future employment and a brighter future.

Goals of this Project:

  • Provide English language skills to children in impoverished Rwanda
  • Teach and interact with marginalized children in Africa
  • Improve the future prospects of some of Rwanda’s most impoverished children, and help them to break the poverty cycle
  • Expose volunteers and children to different people and cultures

Start Dates

This project is available year-round and programs start every SUNDAY. Volunteers can choose to participate for periods ranging from 2 weeks to 12 weeks. Longer stays can be arranged directly with the local team, but will be subject to availability and individual visa conditions.

Spaces on this project are limited and therefore subject to availability. Early booking is recommended.

Requirements

Love Volunteers welcomes all those 18 years and over who wish to help create a brighter future for children through the power of education. This project best suits those with experience and/or qualifications in the field of childhood development and education, though volunteers who simply wish to explore an interest in this field are also welcomed as there are many ways you can assist in the classroom. Whist not mandatory, completing a TEFL course prior to joining this project would prove to be highly beneficial. Ideally, volunteers on this project will have at least a basic knowledge of the local language in order to communicate effectively with staff and students, though this is not a pre-requisite.
