children in Uganda
Few children in rural schools in Uganda have access to quality education. Many communities lack actual school facilities, as classes are taught under the shade of mango trees. Often, teachers refuse posts in villages that have inadequate classrooms and resources, leaving the eager students with little hope of a career outside of subsistence farming. Even in communities with adequate school facilities, teacher-to-student ratios are upwards of 40:1. MCF,is looking for volunteers interested in teaching English, French, Mathematics, Science, creative arts and other related subjects or IT in these communities. It doesn’t matter what level you would prefer to teach, there are endemic needs from primary, school, junior high schools through senior high schools. We don’t require formal teaching qualifications, as we know your eagerness, personal expertise and experience will help empower the burgeoning Ugandan young children.
Depending on your teaching experience and comfort level, we can arrange for you to either pair with a local teacher or lead a class on your own. Our local schools are thrilled when international volunteers join their staff, and you will be provided with as much lesson plan, curriculum and prep assistance as you would like. Teaching abroad with AINUganda will make a lasting difference in the life of every child you teach—join us in transforming the next generation of Uganda’s best and brightest!
Whether you’re a professional teacher hoping to temporarily relocate to a classroom across the world or an eager and personable person hoping to make a difference, our volunteers program is right for you. Access to quality education in rural Ugandan communities is extremely poor; many schools have classes with 45+ students, and there is a serious shortage of teachers in these rural communities. Many professional Ugandan teachers will refuse to be placed in villages with poor educational infrastructure and a low overall standard of living; these communities are stuck in a cyclical mire of poor resources, inadequate classrooms, too few teachers, and low academic performance.
