Teach Poor Children in Schools in India

Overall rating: 0 based on 0 reviews

Program Description

You can teach a range of subjects in combination, or teach English or Art only. The choice is yours. You may also have the opportunity to teach sport for an hour each day at one of our larger schools. The sports on offer are badminton, volleyball, throw ball, football, cricket.

You'll assist a teacher in the class for up to a week, then, once you have gained confidence and feel comfortable in the classroom, you will be able to become involved in lesson planning and take classes on your own. We provide you with a Teaching Suggestions Guide with tips on inexpensive resources you may want to take with you.

You can work in nursery, primary and secondary schools, with delightful children who are very keen to learn. The secondary schools are mainly ‘Matriculation’ schools where it is compulsory that all lessons are taught in English. You may also be able to incorporate your own interests and specialities into your teaching schedule. This project is totally flexible.

Teach conversational English and a choice of subjects in India. All teaching is very much appreciated, so you can combine your teaching with Music, Drama, French, German, Arts and Crafts or Sports.

Highlights

FOOD: Breakfast and dinner will be provided and prepared for you by the family and is mainly local fare, allowing you to taste a varied selection of delicious south Indian dishes and exotic fruits. You will need to make provision for your own lunch.

ACCOMMODATION: For a complete Indian experience we'll arrange for you to stay with a wonderful host family. All of our hosts are very welcoming and not only will be made to feel part of the family you’ll also gain a great insight into Indian culture and customs. Many of our volunteers remain friends with their host families long after they leave India.

You may share a room with one other volunteer; and you may have an en-suite Western-style bathroom. Most of the showers in our host accommodation are cold water only – however your hosts will boil water for you. All of our host family houses are close together and just a few minutes’ walk away from internet cafes, banks and snack shops and just a short auto ride into the centre of town. Our staff in Madurai also live close-by.
