Volunteers in this project are engaged on a day to day basis with children in ECD as Teacher Assistants. They provide a conducive platform for children to access educational services and promoting play as the pivot of education for children in this grade. Children in this grade are between the ages of 3 to 6 years of age. Volunteers have an opportunity to be innovative and initiate educational games for children as well as facilitating coloring and paintings. It is a project for those volunteers who wish to be immersed in visionary art work, painting and play (indoor or outdoor).
Volunteers will be accommodated in dorms separated according to gender. Volunteers should bring their own sleeping bag and small mattress. Running water and water system toilets are available. will be provided for the duration of the camp. Our camps are self catering (unless it is stated otherwise) and sufficient money will be provided to buy food and prepare the food together as a family. Please bring with you traditional recipes that do not require particularly special ingredients Food
Weekends are meant for free tours that group/individuals can organize by themselves. You can decide to visit places of interest within the vicinity of the work cam. It has become a custom in all our Workcamps to have cultural nights. This affords each volunteer the opportunity to present her/his country and culture. Please bring with you your national flag and traditional dress if possible.
This project focuses on supporting Kindergarten education for children at a local rural school in Victoria Falls. Early Childhood Education is key to the promotion of cognitive, physical and social development of children in the first 1000 days of their lives. This project’s aim is to promote access to ECD services to children and promoting the education of ECD children through play.
Participants should arrive at least two days before the camp starts for orientation. It is important to note that projects locations may change due to several reasons beyond our control. There might be few applications for participation, late cancellation by volunteers or the community failing to make its contribution to the project in the last minute, and finally insecure situations. Therefore volunteers are urged to be flexible and accept alternative options
Desire to work hard as well as being comfortable to work with kids from diverse backgrounds.
