Our English teaching program benefits local Ugandan children and orphans by teaching them the useful language of English. The demand for English - speaking Ugandans is becoming more prominent with all the various tourist attractions currently luring tourists to this warm, welcoming country. Improving these children conversational English makes for a better future as well as helping them to compete and participate in the global market.
As a volunteer English-teacher, you will only be teaching for 2-3 hours a day, six days a week. There are already English teachers existing in the schools, however, volunteers offer much - needed assistance; including presenting and applying different teaching methods, giving advice on solving communication barriers and offering appropriate curriculum for the classroom.
- Skill/Qualification. There are no specific qualifications required to join this English-teaching project. However, IFRE does expect participants to be native English - speakers who are enthusiastic to teach children. Previous teaching experience and/or a degree in English is preferred but not required.
- Volunteer's Responsibilities. Responsibilities include teaching English in either primary or secondary schools. Additionally, some of the local orphanages run their own schools, requiring that volunteers also teach in these programs. Local schools provide all curriculum and teaching materials. Volunteers will work alongside an already - existing teacher – reporting to the schools' respective headmasters.
- Room/Food. IFRE makes all necessary arrangements regarding room, food and supervision from the beginning to the end of the program. While participating in the first week's language and cultural immersion classes, participants stay with a host family near the city. While volunteering, participants stay with either a host family or at the orphanage – in a separate room with a shared bathroom.
