Volunteers will help in guiding student in studies, setting a better environment to enhance a better learning environment. Be ready to provide attentive care from 09:00 to 15:00 on Monday to Friday. Some group activities will be arranged by the school and teachers.
Volunteers will stay in the school. Meal will be provided. Sleeping bag is necessary.
The school is located in Chow Kit, Kuala Lumpur. It is located in the city, so you can sometimes enjoy café, night market, etc. in the evening (but not till too late!).
The workcamp has been organized with Malaysian Organization of Volunteer Exchange (MOVE) since 2018 in this place. MOVE is a workcamp NGO founded in 2006, but stopped activities for some years and NICE restarted co-organizing since 2017! Yayasan Chow Kit (YCK) is a non-profit organization that caters to the needs of children in and around Chow Kit. They run two drop-in centers in Chow Kit and one safe home for children who are in need of temporary guardianship. YCK operate in partnership with Ministry of Women and Child Welfare. YCK developed out of Nur Salam and was incorporated in 2011. We organized the first workcamp in 2018 Sep. that was very successful, so have decided to do it again (4 times in 2019)!
High motivation to work with the kids and to respect local culture/ way. Experience of similar type of service is welcomed!
