If you enjoy teaching, this is the opportunity to do so amidst savannas teeming with wildlife! English is a very important subject for young Kenyans to learn. Often, a good ability to read and write in English will mean they can secure seats in good universities and ultimately, get well paid jobs. English is used in commerce, communication and because of the growth of tourism, in jobs related to the field. Although the local standard of English is quite good in Kenya, there are still schools which are resource-poor and lack enough skilled educators. The impoverished attend these schools, and improving the grasp of the English language is near impossible without proper guidance. Hence, our volunteers will help the children to improve their English skills. You’ll teach conservational English as well as from the official curriculum and you’ll be encouraged to hold debates and discussions. This will make the children learn quickly and ensure they become confident individuals capable of believing in themselves. Teach English in Kenya, and help the local children have a better future while enjoying the panoramic sceneries, famous wildlife, and fascinating culture blend of Kenya!
