Requests from our partners – can you help?

Requests from our partners – can you help?

We can place volunteers with a great variety of skills and experiences and we always look forward to finding out about new volunteers and creating a match with a local project which is beneficial to both volunteer and the local community.  At the moment, in particular, we would love to hear from potential volunteers who could:

Link up online to listen to children read and to read with them – Diana’s placement described above was so successful that teachers and children are asking for more!

Volunteer with the project we support in South Africa to mentor their men’s group – the programme is largely run and managed by women and they have identified the need for a discrete men’s group to discuss the issues men face in South African society.

Help to develop teachers’ understanding of how to teach Science.  This is a request from Treak Community Centre in Cambodia – Science is on the school curriculum but teachers have no experience themselves of teaching this subject is a fun and practical way.  We have placed several volunteers there to run Science clubs – this time they have asked us to try to find a Science teacher who could help develop this subject in the classroom.

Volunteer at the medical centre in the Gambia – this is a new programme for us and needs people who work or have worked in the healthcare sector.

Take part in online meetings with the house-mothers in Morocco – either one-to-one or as part of a group – to help them maintain their spoken English and to support them through our friendship as they learn to work in a new way following the earthquake.

Help to landscape the site for a training centre in a beautiful rural area of The Gambia – building has started and help is needed to ensure that the natural environment is maintained and not compromised.

And remember – this is not an exclusive list – we would love to hear from you whatever your skills!
