RIPPLE Africa is looking for volunteer teaching assistants to work in our classrooms in Malawi. RIPPLE Africa supports 8 nursery schools, 4 primary schools, and 1 secondary school, and we are looking for volunteers to assist directly in the classroom. Schools in Malawi are extremely under resourced, often lacking even the most basic materials, such as toys, books, desks, chairs, pencils and pens, and through a shortage of government teachers, student to teacher ratios are extremely high. Our volunteers provide extra help to students in the classroom, assist the Malawian teachers who have to tackle large class sizes, and often teach lessons on their own, to help the wonderful children who are eager to learn, but unfortunate in their situation. Volunteers receive an induction on arrival, after which they can choose the level of education they wish to become involved in.
