Teaching Trip to Malawi Africa

As a teacher, I have some free time every summer. I feel that this summer I am being led to Malawi Africa to volunteer in a project called Impact Africa. It allows me to volunteer at a school in Blantyre Malawi. The cost is beyond my means, so this is my attempt to collect the money for a plane ticket and the $1600.00 I have to pay to be a part of the project.

I will be working in one of the local schools, teaching core subjects to the children of different ages and levels. There are teachers who I will be assisting and I will focus on certain individuals, or groups to provide closer or more individual attention.

The main subject that I will teach will be English, then Math. I may get involved in other academic subjects, though this will depend on what the teacher is teaching at the time. I will plan my own lessons to incorporate almost anything.

My volunteer work in the primary schools will involve, but will not be restricted to:

"¢Assistant teaching: Provide individual attention and assistance to children during lessons

"¢Help with arts, crafts, painting, reading and games

"¢Organize special needs classes for children who have not been able to keep up with the pace of the classes

I will assist in the local community in various aspects:

Extra Lessons
I will identify those children who would benefit from extra help, to take part in the additional afternoon lessons.

Development Workshops

I will raise awareness and understanding of various topics within the school and the wider community. Educate students on conservation and how to preserve and protect the wildlife of Malawi or advise them on HIV and AIDS.

Computer Literacy
I will educate local teachers on how to use a computer and in the future, children as well when sufficient equipment is obtained. (I'm going to take some iPads with me.)
