Comments from UPA A Volunteer can teach and also be able to engage in other projects since the teaching will be for only 3 hours on specific days agreed at the start of the project. The school is close to slum areas and it really have pupils from very poor families. School buildings are also poor. The need for help hear is enormous.

 

Note:

All volunteers choosing school project should always remember to consider the school holidays. Schools are closed in April – May, August to September and December to early February

Communication Most of the children can understand English and in case of the nursery section, the local teachers are always there to help.
