Most people in Madagascar can’t afford to travel, and in villages like Tsararano Ambony, there is little chance of contact with the outside world. You, as a foreign teacher, enable the students to form a relationship with someone from a different background and culture. On the other hand, the local teachers can also learn new and up to date teaching methods and techniques from you. You will mainly assist the regular school teachers in the school and therefore even without a formal teaching background, you can participate in this project.
You will teach children from different age groups with different learning capacities. You are free to use your own teaching materials and methods in teaching. You can use the coursebook as a reference or educate children through conversation with spoken English. During your time here you can teach them different subjects such as mathematics, history, science, geography, computer, technologies, music, arts and crafts, different educational games, personal development, environment awareness, general health and safety and so on. Higher education in Madagascar is given in French and Malagasy. It’s also vitally important that children learn English as well because Nosy Be is also one of the most famous tourist destinations in Madagascar.
Volunteer experiences have a direct and positive impact on local communities by injecting money into the local economy through the purchase of food, transportation, and tourism activities. Volunteering is a great way to give back to the comunity and make a difference in the world. Depending on the type of volunteer experience you are interested in, your time can be spent improving educational resources and opportunities, providing medical services to underserved communities, or promoting environmental conservation and sustainable farming techniques.
