  • Beschreibung


    My name is James. I am from Hakha, the capital city of the Chin state which is one of the states in Myanmar. I have a theology degree from New International Christian University in Bangalore (India). I am 35 years old. I am the director of a middle school in Hakha.

    There are 46 students in the school. The students are from 4 to 13 years old.
    Our school is lacking english teachers. Having volunteer English teachers will help the students improve their english in order to reach a better future. Even though most of the students are christians, we don't teach religion at school. So it does not matter if you are christian or not, everyone with good intention is more than welcome.

    Food and accommodation will be provided to the volunteer teachers during their stay.

    The volunteers will be free the afternoons during the weekdays and the weekends so they can easily move around and discover the surroundings.

  • Arbeit


    The volunteers will be teaching english from 8:30 am to 12 am (midday) from monday to Friday.
    The volunteers will be running the english classes in collaboration with the main teacher. They will be the assistant english teachers. Classes will have between 4 to 12 students each. A normal class is usually an hour long.
    The volunteer teachers will be free to teach their own way using their own methods and materials or they can also follow the school curriculum. The books and other teaching materials will be provided by the school.
    The school is run using tuition fees as well as donations. Students are paying for the whole education, not specifically for the english classes.The school is a normal school and does not only teach english. Other subjects such as Maths, Chin language, Science, history, geography and others are taught. The volunteer teachers are needed as the local teachers do not speak a proper english and thus cannot teach english in a good way.

The volunteers must be aware that the shower is quite basic and hot water will have to be boiled prior taking the shower.
