Experienced teacher with a family? Want to be able to get involved and take your family with you?

We understand that many experienced teachers may want to enbark on charitable work in developing countries but find committing difficult due to family commitments. To help teachers who want to get involved we offer community work placements to partners and dependent(s) of teacher mentors, that way everyone can get involved and be part of something amazing!

We'll look at the skill set partners and older dependents can offer as well as the age of younger dependent(s). In discussion with you we can arrange a suitable placement for members of your family. Some possible placements are; classroom painting, building, landscaping school grounds and setting up new classrooms. For for information please contact us direct to discuss this in more detail.
