Volunteering in Teaching and Support

Every child deserves the gift of fundamental education, recognized as the foundation of development. Education plays a transformative role in shaping a child's character and narrative, paving the way for a better life. Unfortunately, approximately 61 million children worldwide lack access to schools and the opportunity for basic education, trapping them in a cycle of poverty. Education not only unlocks numerous opportunities but also enhances an individual's lifetime earning potential. It serves as a powerful tool to break the chains of poverty, offering equal prospects for a healthy life. UNESCO emphasizes the right to primary education for every child, aligning with the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) aimed at providing basic education universally. Education serves as a gateway to eradicate poverty from society and uplift the overall well-being of its people. 

Volunteers participate in programs aimed at improving the education of local students, concentrating on subjects like English, Mathematics, Craft, and Art. To assist volunteers, comprehensive workbooks and teaching guidelines are provided. Volunteers utilize creative and interactive teaching methods to make learning enjoyable for children. Proficiency in the English language is particularly valuable, opening doors to employment opportunities and fostering a healthier life. Education serves as the pathway to eliminate poverty from the community and serves as a catalyst for improving the lives of children.Educate and mentor children and youth for their holistic development
