Local children in Kenya, especially those in the rural areas, do not have any chances to meet and interact with foreigners. Most do not even get the chance to practice English, despite the language being one of the official languages of Kenya.

Even interacting and speaking the language properly with them may benefit their learning.

The age of students ranges from 6 – 18 years old as you will be placed in either a primary school, a secondary school or a high school in the Gatanga area. Your placement will depend on the local needs at the time.

Keep in mind you will be in charge of arranging your own class. This can be done in an informal way and so, you are free to get creative! The favourite activities amongst the youngest students include games, gardening and singing.

We aim to teach English through practice and creativity, and you are welcome to provide new ideas to not only teach English, but also to promote an exchange of cultures and conversations between you, fellow participants and the students.
