Eswatini Teaching Volunteer Project

Resrutt

Eswatini Teaching Volunteer Project

Volunteer Role

As a volunteer on the Teaching Project you will be working with children from the surrounding Ezulwini communities. The total number of the children at the school varies from 700 to 800 pupils and each classroom has a maximum of 40 pupils.

You will be expected to work as a teaching assistant, helping the teacher where ever possible especially with maths, English and science subjects. You can bring your own ideas, such as crafts, if you are working with the lower grades and drama for the upper grades.

Some of the activities you will get involved in may include:
- Assisting a teacher in class
- Leading small groups in classroom based activities
- Preparing and marking tests and homework
- Introducing/developing sports and drama activities
- Introduce new sports/develop existing sports (e.g. football, netball).
- Assisting at the library through cataloguing books, literacy lessons, and one-on-one tutoring

Generally getting involved with the staff at the school, know what’s happening at the school and get involved where ever possible. The more effort and energy you put into your placement the more you are likely to get the most out of it.

Day in the life of a volunteer

07:00: Wake up to see the sunshine, jump in a hot shower, and get yourself started for the day with breakfast!
07:30: Travel to your placement and get ready to begin your day.
08:00: Participate in your chosen project.
12:00: Lunch hour! Time to eat the packed lunch you made that morning!

IMPORTANT NOTE: When you work with children, you will be in the rural areas where modesty will be an important factor. Please make sure you dress appropriately - failure to do so may result in you missing a day of volunteering. More information about the dress code will be provided in the pre-flight guide.

Itinerary For Your Experience

Day 1: Fly into OR Tambo Airport, Johannesburg (more details in “Arrivals” section in the Swaziland Destination Brief) where you will be met by All Out Africa staff members who will transfer you by road from Johannesburg to the Kingdom of Swaziland. It is approximately a five hour journey from the airport to you to your accommodation in the Ezulwini Valley (Valley of Heaven).

Day 2: The second day begins with an informative presentation that will brief you on all you need to know about the culture and country, how to effectively contribute during your volunteer experience, and what to expect on the tours. In the afternoon you will embark on a Cultural Tour where you will visit the museum to learn about Swazi history and culture, and then will walk around a real Swazi village to experience day-to-day life in Swaziland. The tour finishes with a local culinary delight - a traditional Swazi braai!.

Day 6-7 and other weekends for the duration of your stay: These two days are a free weekend, a great time to explore the magic of Swaziland!

What Makes a Good Volunteer?

Volunteers need to be flexible and keep an open mind concerning their placements as situations can arise beyond our control which could require you to be placed at a different project than the one you have initially chosen. We will of course always do our utmost to fulfill your initial wishes but do remember that where you are going is quite different from where you are coming and as such one should be prepared for things not always going according to plan.

Volunteering and intercultural travel share a common trait: the more you put into it, the more you get out of it. This program is designed for proactive individuals and groups that are prepared to adapt to the local environment and its current needs. Naturally, the scheduling and activities of our program are subject to change. Alterations in activities are mainly due to changes in local conditions, which we believe is part of what makes overseas programs the interesting adventure and incredible learning experience that they are.

How Long Should I Volunteer?

Our projects range from 1 week up to approx. 30 weeks. Projects have a specified minimum stay, then it’s up to you how long you can commit. In our experience the longer you stay the more you will gain, as your understanding of the project broadens and you take on more responsibilities. Every volunteer will be given a certificate of appreciation at the end of their stay as a symbol of volunteering stay.
