Volunteer Opportunities

English Teacher

According to our experience, the English skills of the girls vary a lot. Therefore we try to split the classes and group the girls according to their English level. If you teach basic English to the girls, it is very helpful (but not a must) to speak some words of Swahili to be able to explain in a better way.
We have a set of Swahili-English lessons prepared at the center. You can use this teaching material for your lessons


  • Teach young mothers and girls in English
  • Improve English vocabulary of the girls
  • Practice simple tense throughout the following times: Past tense, Present Perfect, Present Tense and Future Tense
