Step by Step Primary School in Nansana is located at walking distance from the UPA guesthouse (+/- 5 min). The school counts about 240 children aged 3-12 (nursery and P1-P7). Volunteers will be placed according to where they are needed. It is also possible that lessons or classes will be shared with multiple teachers.
Because Step by Step is a school, it prefers volunteers to arrive one week before the start of semesters. That way volunteers can have the opportunity to be introduced to the school and to the teaching methods used.
