Our program offers you the opportunity to work at the biggest kindergarten in Maldives. Even though this kindergarten is operated by a private organization under the permission of the government, it provides free education for some underprivileged students. In addition, around 25 to 35 students who are residing at an orphanage in Maldives also attend this institution to obtain the education required. The kindergarten has 34 classes in total and approx. around 850 students. You can contribute to the wellbeing of these little kids by teaching them English and by improving their communication and creative skills. Since Friday is an official holiday for Maldivians, on Fridays you will working at the beach by actively taking part in the beach cleaning. This is due to the increasing pollution taking place at the beach due to high tourist activity.
