The objective of the Uganda teaching program is to contribute to the academic development of poor local schools, in order to provide the best opportunity for Ugandans from poorer backgrounds to still receive quality education. Teaching at a Ugandan community school is an experience not to be missed. Although their lives have been tough, the local children are extremely, polite, cheerful, friendly and are eager to learn. The presence of a mzungu (westerner) is always a great novelty for them. Volunteers are required to teach children ranging in age from 4-17 years. Typical subjects taught include – English, Math, Science, Social Studies, Art and Physical Education. Schools in Uganda run for three terms a year. Although the school terms vary from year to year, they re approximately as follows: (Term One – January to March, Term Two – May to July, Term Three – September to November). There are short breaks between these terms in the months of April, August and December during which time volunteers can take a break, travel, engage in tourist activities such as safari, take tutorials (holiday classes) BOOK WITH US
