THE GREEN LION
During your time at this program, you will be working with small children (ages around 3 to 6 years old) at local kindergartens spread around the Gatanga area. Each class at the kindergarten is quite packed, with an average of 30 children per classroom! So the extra hands are certainly appreciated by the local staff. You will work together with local teachers and assist them while they manage their class. But you will have the opportunity to lead groups and create your own activities such as drawing, coloring, games, etc. Get creative! Having said that, your main aim should be to practice English with the children. Even though the language is widely taught in Kenya, the chance to practice it is important in order for it to stick with them, which does not happen a lot in Kenya’s rural areas. The chance to get the most out of speaking proper English is a skill that will prove invaluable for them later on in life!
About the Accommodation You will be accommodated in our center. All participants are expected to be environmentally aware and use all resources with restraint, especially water, paper and electricity. You will also be expected to clean up after yourself and play your part in keeping the accommodation neat and organized. Food Arrangements Food served will mainly be Kenyan food, which consists of meats, vegetables, potato, eggs, bread, pancakes (commonly known as “chapatti”) and fruits such as oranges, bananas and avocadoes.
Gatanga Village will be your new home and will give you the chance to see authentic rural Kenya. Close by is Thika, an industrial town where you will be able to find anything you need. Nairobi is not too far either, and you can head there during the weekend for nights out or sightseeing. Likewise, there are many natural areas in close proximity to Gatanga, a simple example are Fourteen Falls, a set of waterfalls that will leave you awestruck.
There are no further requirements. Teaching materials such as: Games, books, color pencils, etc Pictures from your country, family and friends Small cultural objects from your country of origin Modest clothing – covering the knees and shoulders is required while on the Kindergarten site
