Our newest site is in Nigeria in West Africa. Volunteers live with the Sisters of Notre Dame in the city of Enugu and serve at the Notre Dame School. Enugu is the capital city of the Enugu State and has about two million inhabitants, ranging from very rich to very poor.
Education is the top priority for the Sisters of Notre Dame in Nigeria, so volunteers are primarily needed in the schools. At the school, volunteers may serve as teachers' aides, tutor individual students, help with typing, filing, and other administrative work, read to children in the library, or teach their own classes. In addition to working in the school, volunteers may also work with the Sisters at the Justice and Development Program Commission or at a health clinic.
