The Green Lion
This program takes place at local kindergartens setup for the less fortunate. Parents of these children work hard to make a living and having this service removes a lot of stress from them. The children that come to these kindergartens are around 3-6 years old and come during the day. They are picked up by their parents in the afternoon. During your time here, you will: – Teach English, life skills and basic hygiene. – Help in supervising the children – Care for them by feeding, washing, dressing them, etc. – Assist in keeping the kindergarten clean and organized. – Organize games and activities to make their time at the kindergarten more enjoyable. You are more than welcome to bring materials such as games, color pencils or anything else that might come to mind for your teaching time as well as other activities. Experience in this field would be advantageous but by no means essential. A truly life-changing experience is in store for you through this engagement with Zambia, its locals and its children!
About the Accommodation : Our center is located in Monze, the southern province of Zambia. It’s about 2.5 hours from the capital, Lusaka, and around 3 hours from airport. You will stay in a dorm-style center with other participants. Each house accommodates 12 people with rooms shared between 4-8 people (separate genders) and a shared bathroom that has a flushing toilet and shower. Food Arrangements : The staple food of Monze is Nhima (corn flour) but you will find rice for example in some restaurants that offer international foods. For this program you will find yourself dining on healthy local Zambian foods like nhima, potato, bread, meat, fish, lots of vegetable, nuts and eggs and sometimes rice and spaghetti.
