Program Name: Teaching Children - Volunteer Abroad in Maldives
Organization: Volunteer Maldives
About Volunteer Maldives: We offer a wide variety of projects which almost anybody can participate in! No matter whether you are skilled or unskilled, young or old, have experience or no experience at all – We will find the perfect project right for you! The best thing is, no matter what project you choose – you will always be just a few steps away from the ocean! Visit uninhabited islands and white powdery beaches in your spare time, help the communities in need and make a difference.
Each volunteer has an opportunity to become a part of Maldives community. The local people of Maldives are very welcoming and will make you feel like at home. If you want to take a family member, or a friend to volunteer abroad with you – you are more than welcome to do so!
Highlights: English is the second language in the Maldives and all over the world. It is being taught in every school all over the islands. However, due to lack of proper training, there is a shortage of local English teachers and most of instructors come from India and Sri Lanka. Even though proper grammar is being taught, the pronunciation and intonation of a native English speaker is missed. By volunteering abroad in the Maldives, you have an opportunity to teach conversational English to local kids and help enhance their learning experience. Volunteers can also teach Math, Arts, Crafts, or any other classes. If you are ready to make a difference and teach the kids, then we have a classroom waiting for you!
