Date 2013-11-04 08:11:08 Location : Africa
The International Humanity Foundation (IHF) is seeking forward-thinking, dynamic individuals of all ages/backgrounds to contribute to our childrens home Kenya, as part of our Work-Study Volunteer Program.
Teaching mathematics to children aged 6 -17.
Work with our Media, Fundraising and Online Outreach teams
Learn about poverty and development
Our Kenya centre is a childrens home and also provides emergency relief to the tribes in East Pokot. This is the biggest IHF centre, with approximately 75 children. The children are from the marginalised Pokot tribe, whose conditions are amongst the worse in Kenya. Living conditions in this region are harsh, and we provide basic needs such as a home, food, and access to education to children who would otherwise go without. We also run livestock donation projects and other initiatives to relieve the extreme poverty where we can.
Your work as a volunteer with IHF will be divided between local and international tasks. Your main local task will be teaching Mathematics - to coach and support the children in the subject for school and to improve their grades. You will need to liaise closely with the schools and build lesson plans to compliment the national curriculum. You will also be asked to assist with the care of our children and organising activities for the children.
For your international tasks you will be assigned teams, made up of volunteers in all centres, and work on administrative tasks for not just the centre you are staying in, but the whole organisation. Areas assigned include Online Outreach, Media and Fundraising. This is a great opportunity to experience not only the hands on, in-field side of development, but also the overall management and running of an international organisation. Some pre-trip tasks must be completed in order to gain an understanding of the kind of work you will be doing.
Fluent written and spoken English is required
A qualification in Mathematics teaching is essential
Minimum stay is 4 weeks
Cost: $55 - $75 per week
Basic food and accommodation included
Cost decreases for longer stays
