In village schools in rural Tanzania, student-teacher ratios regularly reach 50-to-one, with overcrowded classrooms negatively affecting the quality of education. To achieve our purpose in aiding these teachers and students, volunteer a few mornings during the trip at a local primary school and tutor children in English and math, work alongside teachers to help create instructional aids, and help craft a curriculum that can be used for future success.
When not helping with teaching, you will work to improve the infrastructure of the school by planting gardens and building classrooms, all of which will help improve the lives of local children. Watch the video to the right to hear from Esther “Mama” Simba, your guide on this trip who has also been working in these primary schools for over fifteen years, about the impact Discover Corps has on the community of Rau and why the teachers and children love our travelers.
(Volunteer Time = 12 hours, or 3 mornings)
