Volunteer Teachers wanted

We're now accepting volunteer teachers in our school!

A chance to experience west African village life while teaching in our school. We have accomodation available in our faculty unit for several volunteer teachers. You will have your own room and your food will be prepared for you. Our school runs from 8AM until 3PM with around one hour of lunch break. We have students from kindergarden to grade 7 and we will arrange you to the class of your preference. If you have a high school and above education, you can teach in our school. You don't have to be a teacher in your home country.

Since we started the school four years ago in 2002, we have made steady progress to help local children become better educated. But it is not easy for us to get quality teachers because of our rural location and finacial difficulty experienced by most of our students' family. Your help will not only benefits the students but also provides examples for local teachers to become better educators.

Other than teaching activity, you will have plenty of time to enjoy the lush countryside around our village far from the noise and pollution of Accra, beautiful sandy beach, and various other local activities.
