HELP US TO HELP YOU

We’re always looking for European primary school teachers who are available to live in Uganda for at least three months and use their skills in our primary school in Kibiri. You would have to work day by day alongside your Ugandan colleagues for around 35-40 hours a week, (weekends are free) bringing your expertise and knowledge to our school. The teaching is secular and involves a lot of other hands on activities, sports and ludiche. The children follow an Ugandan and European syllabus using both books and tests.

European Teachers Tasks:

 

  • Sustaining the best possible standards of teaching and learning in the circumstances.

 

  • Assisting, cooperating and helping the tutors and families of the orphans by means of the global educative process, avoiding and or reducing to a minimum critical or damaging situations

  • Organising the syllabus and after school or extra-curricular activities such as sport, music, dance, theatre, role-plays, vocational/manual activities etc.

Every teacher is free to organise and model their role on their previous experience and abilities but must always respect the fundamental values of the school based on human rights, rights of the child, on religious and social tolerance, following a secular education of peace, equality and respecting the environment.

 

Teaching periods are as follows:

1st term: From 1st February to 30th April

2nd term: From 20th of June to 20th August

3rd term: from 10th September to 10th December

 

We take teachers of any gender or age if they are motivated and able to adapt. Return flights are paid by our charity and bed and board provided in Kibiri for the duration of your stay. We also pay a salary of 150 euros per month (the same salary as the Ugandan teachers), which in Uganda is  the equivalent of about 1000 euros. Volunteers stay in a single bedroom, with access to an outside bathroom (like a 1 or 2 star hotel in Europe or the USA)

 

It is possible to request a teaching placement for one of the school terms or the whole school year.
