After a global pandemic changed my plans to go to Zimbabwe and work on a private wildlife reserve (hence the "Maggie saves the animals" in the url), I'm now to teach in a low-income school in ARUSHA, TANZANIA through International Volunteer HQ! I have always wanted to spend time volunteering in Africa and I finally have the chance.
For two weeks in August 2021, I will be living and working in a homestay in Arusha doing focused teaching, alongside local teachers, in busy classrooms ranging from 30-80 students. I could end up helping with any range of subjects in an under-resourced community. Students there may start school at just age 3 and usually stop going once they are teenagers, leaving to help support their families. I am so very excited to help with their access to education and learn about their community and culture!
Please help me raise funds to make my dream a reality!
