We are a private pre-primary school located in Guelmim city, South-Morocco (Moroccan desert/ Sahara). Well, we're working in order to help children aquire new skills and take their education to the best.
Children at school are aged between 3 and 12 years, divided over 9 levels. We want them to learn some basic Frensh as a second language after Arabic and English as a third. A reason why we're actualy looking for volunteers to assist the main English/Frensh teachers and they will be occasionally asked to teach for training purposes.
Hamza, the owner of this school, will need you to stay for a period of 4 weeks at least. The school starts at 8 am and ends at 6 pm (with a lunch break of 2 hours: from 12 to 2). So you can chose to work 4 morning hours or 4 evening hours.
Shifting : There is a car always ready to take you wherever you need to go. A transport car which is dedicated to trips and finaly Hamza can lend you a bicycle if you want to hang around in the city at your free time.
3 volunteers are needed in maximum.
We will be full time available to answer your questions and give you more details about the school and our plans..
