The Empowering Children and Youth Sierra Leone organization hopes to connect with people who have the initiative, strength, and desire to make a difference. It is also an opportunity for participants to explore the other side of life. We are looking for volunteers from all over the world. Volunteers will work for a time span ranging from two weeks to several months at the Empowering Children School in Sierra Leone.
Our school is connected to the fibre optic internet. We have a strong internet connection that can accommodate online teaching. Teach online
Volunteers will teach along with a base teacher. The two will share knowledge and subjects, and learn from each other.
Volunteers will facilitate a professional development program for teachers. Our developmental areas are Talk for Writing, the Responsive Classroom Approach, and ICT. We do not use corporal punishment.
You can organize a campaign and raise funds for materials and supplies to continue promoting our education program.
Twenty-five children are currently sponsored. These hopes and dreams of a brighter future for these children are assured with education, which is the best gift we can give each child. Help us make this number increase.
Teach ICT, basic computer skills to teachers and pupils in small groups.
Volunteers can join or lead a local community program.
We are currently working with Safe Haven Adaptive Response Program SHARP. The vision of SHARP is to build a sustainable village to relocate families in the flood prone slums and creeks of Freetown, and empower children and youth with quality education and skills so that lives can be transformed for a brighter future.
