Love teaching and being with children? Then experiencing Malawi as a teacher aide is something you should really enjoy! We have strong relationships with various schools around the area in need of teaching support. These schools have an established curriculum and you will be asked to assist the teaching staff to convey the same curriculum to larger classes. You may find yourself working in either an orphanage, public, primary or secondary school around the Mangochi area depending on the local’s needs. You will be working together with teachers and assisting them while they manage either English, Mathematics or Science classes Thanks to a community holiday program we organize, this program can be booked during Malawi’s school holidays!
About the Accommodation : You will be accommodated in our center. It is quite basic and you will share your room with other participants. There are shared western style, flushable toilets. There are limited laundry facilities so expect to wash your clothes by hand. All participants are expected to be environmentally aware and to use all resources with restraint, especially water, paper and electricity. You will be expected to clean up yourself, and to play your part to keep the accommodation neat and organized. Food Arrangements : Malawian food will served mainly, along with some European food. You can expect meat, vegetables, potatoes, eggs, bread, rice spaghetti and more.
Mangochi is coastal town sited between Lakes Malawi and Malombe. Previously called Fort Johnston during colonial times, it is known as a lake town with a lot of water and fishing activities. Although a small township with a population of 50,000, necessities are nearby to assist you during your stay. It is also full of culture and history and it’s always interesting to walk through the small town.
Additional Equipment : Modest clothing for the school – e.g. covering the knees and shoulders.
