Teach underprivileged children in Sri Lanka

Overall rating: 0 based on 0 reviews

Program Description

You will teach at a very poor school in Yakkala where you'll make a huge difference in the lives of the children you teach.

You can teach English as well as a host of other subjects, including Music, dance and Arts & crafs.. If you'd like to coach Sports, such as Football, Netball and Cricket, the children would love that!

School runs from 7.30 a.m. to 1.30 p.m. and there are usually between 14 and 20 children in a class. The younger children in Grades 1 to 3 finish at 12.30. The younger children like to learn nursery rhymes, some basic spelling and volcabulary, drawing and colouring in and generally playing with the volunteers.

The older grades will need teaching grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation and work from the school textbooks.

The children are lovely and thrive on the interaction with you, they love to hug and invite you to their homes. You don't need any qualifications to do this project.
