Teaching English to primary school students in Saigon

Powered by Truist

Volunteer Opportunity Details:

Last updated on January 22, 2015

Volunteers will work in a free primary school for children whose families have no opportunity to send them to public schools. At the moment, there are more than 120 children aged 6 to 16 joining 6 classes. These children come from many different districts of Ho Chi Minh City, some of them even take almost 2 hours to get to the school. After class, many children have to help their parents earn money by selling lottery tickets, collecting scrap (nylon bags, plastic, glass,…) or babysitting for neighbours.

The volunteers will be divided into smaller groups to discuss and then organize fun activities about health, sport, environment, education, etc. The aim is to create an active environment for the children to practice English. Although they study English at school, their English skills are very basic and they can hardly communicate with foreigners. Moreover, because of limited facilities and skilled staff, they have little access to recreational activities. In the afternoon, volunteers can help renovate the classrooms or repaint the fences and walls.
