VOLUNTEER TEACHING PROGRAMME
Our mission does not end with sending the books to schools in rural Madagascar. We also organize a volunteer teaching program.
Our first group of student volunteers spent the months of June-September 2018 in Djangoa, setting up the school library and reading books to the children in collaboration with our local librarian and the local teachers, supporting children to improve their French reading and writing skills, and running during the school summer holidays (August) a Summer Camp full of learning and creative activities.
In order to get ready for this, they benefited from a training by Ms. Felicia Sexsmith, our Educational Director.
The second volunteer teaching program took place in summer 2019. Four volunteers focused on strengthening the children’s French skills, as well as teaching English and Environmental Education.
Unfortunately due to the COVID-19 pandemic our volunteer teaching program stopped since 2020. We hope we will be able to resume it in the future.
If you wish to read about our volunteers' experiences, read their blog! And if you feel ready for a volunteer teaching experience in Madagascar (fluent knowledge of French is an essential requirement) contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org.
A big thank you to NEOS Airlines for donating us the tickets for our volunteers!
