Volunteer Teaching in Uganda: Free volunteer abroad programs for graduates
Volunteer teachers in Uganda are involved in many different tasks. They teach English and other languages, teach sports, teach computer skills, new skills to children and youth.
You will typically work with children aged 4 – 17 years and teach at some of the poorly resourced schools in Uganda. You do not need a formal teaching qualification or TEFL in order to participate at the volunteer teaching projects. You can do volunteer teaching as a career break or during an extended holiday.
Volunteer teachers are able to teach on their own after orientation or assist local teachers. You will make a significant contribution by improving the pupils conversational English. In some instances, even the teachers need to learn English from native speakers. This gives them confidence and increased exposure to spoken English. It enables them to advance their language skills and enhance their chances of a brighter future.
Childcare Volunteer Projects: free volunteer abroad programs for graduates
Our childcare support volunteers in Uganda make a real contribution in enriching the lives of orphaned and vulnerable children. The children are aged 0 – 12 years old. Some have been orphaned as a result of HIV/AIDS, taken off the streets or have been abandoned in hospital after birth.
Some vulnerable children will be handicapped and will have suffered so much at a tender age. With your help and donations, they can get a brighter future. There are volunteer opportunities to teach the school going children, counsel, help with feeding, cooking, cleaning, and creating fun activities for the orphans.
You will play an important role in the education and development of the children in Uganda, ensuring that they are well looked after and that they attend to their duties and do their homework.
