A volunteer teaching children literacy in a school in Vietnam

Improve Literacy

Despite rising literacy levels, many kids in developing countries still struggle to keep up in class. This could be due to several reasons such as high student to teacher ratios, lack of teaching support or limited resources.

By stepping in, you can help identify students who are falling behind and provide the additional classroom support they need to thrive. 

As a volunteer, you can assist with the following:

  • Classroom support as an assistant to the teacher
  • Personalised lessons catered to the level of the children who are struggling
  • Plan educational activities that support literacy levels
