LOCATION OF THE CAMP: Maasai Mara Game Reserve
COMMUNITY: Maasai
PROJECT TITLE: Education and support
NUMBER OF VOLUNTEERS: 15

MAIN WORK
The purpose of the after school program is to give children in the community the chance to explore new areas of interest, get help with areas they struggle with, and to have some fun while acquiring new knowledge and skills. The pupil’s who will be attending this after school programme range from class 1 (age5-6) to standard 8 (age 17), but volunteers are welcome to invite specific classes that would be more appropriate for the intended lessons.

Volunteers will be involved in lesson planning and develop educational activities or games for the students to make classes educational, fun and interesting. Volunteers have the choice to teach basic subjects such as English and Math. However volunteer could also teach other subjects such as sports, health and nutrition, drama, arts, Geography, French, Environmental awareness and many more depending on your interest and this would benefit the students as they would learn new things. The size of the classes can be adjusted by dividing the students into groups based on levels to allow volunteers to conduct the classes more effectively.
