“Assist with adding HOPE AND LOVE into Children’s lives on Tropical Zanzibar Island”.

The program runs daily from Monday to Friday, From 8am-1pm and then again from 1pm-5pm. (You can choose to help a half day or a full day) We need help with assisting in the classrooms and helping with Sports in the afternoons (with a lunch break). As a volunteer, you can bring your strengths and skills to the Project, and assist with the talents you have. We always encourage our Volunteers to use the skills and talents at the Project.  Volunteers have the opportunity to assist the local preschool teachers at the School in the mornings and then helping out in the afternoon is optional.  Our aim is to reach out to Many Less Privileged children, adding HOPE and LOVE into their lives, improving the education in Zanzibar Island. The children have a great need for 1 on 1 interaction. Your help will be so much appreciated at the school.  The children love having visitors and the Teachers really appreciate the assistance.
As a volunteer you will also have the opportunity to enjoy the Beautiful Tropical Island, whilst helping the poorer villages. You will have the opportunity to work with the Local Teachers and People in the area, whilst enjoying the Tropical Island and Spectacular Coastline of the Zanzibar Island. You are most welcome to Pray with the children and share the love of Jesus with them.
