Volunteers and volunteer-interns assist in teaching English language, mathematics, geography, history, cookery, human rights etc. A local teacher in the school will guide volunteers and interns. They will shadow the volunteer to become familiar with the school, the children, and the teaching curriculum during the first week of classes. If the volunteer or intern is ready at the beginning of the second week, he or she may begin teaching independently or still work hand in hand with the local teacher. Apart from teaching, some other task related to teaching includes, assign, grade class, prepare home works, read books to the entire classes or small groups, confer with parents or guardians, teacher, counsellor, and administration in order to resolve pupil’s behavioural and academic problems. This position is open throughout the year.
There are lot of needy and underprivileged children who are abandoned to their fate in Cameroon. Most of these children do not all have Cameroonian origins. Some of them especially street children around Yaoundé come into Cameroon from neighbouring countries. In support to the government policy to handle issues concerning vulnerable and underprivileged children, kind hearted and humanitarian gestures in favour of these children could only be the work of individuals, churches and other organisations.
Unless we increase access to computers, the technology gap between Africa and developed countries will continue to widen. The internet and other technologies have made the world an increasingly global community, facilitating the exchange of ideas, information, and skills across geographic distances. Volunteers will teach basic computer skills to senior pupils in small classes of 4 to 10 students. The curriculum includes topics like creating and organizing files, sending/receiving email, using the Internet, and more.We will provide volunteers with technical support, resources and materials, and training as needed.
The medical program is attached to hospitals in Yaoundé and in the rural areas of Cameroon. Volunteers on this program need to be registered medical doctors or nurses and students intending to be medical professionals. Volunteers work with local doctors to assist in the daily medical routine - applying dressings, prescribing minor medication, recording patient history, patient consultations, minor surgeries, and counselling patients. Volunteers can work in the areas of maternal health, surgery, laboratories, dental clinics, counselling, and testing.In rural areas patients have to walk very long distances in order to see a medical doctor or receive medical attention.
We need fund raisers for our other community projects.The volunteer can be at home or come over to take part in a project.
