Engage in teaching and raising awareness about nature conservation
Are you interested in environmental conservation? Do you enjoy working with kids and teenagers? If so, keep reading. For this project we are looking for two participants who have teaching experience and, ideally, practical experience counselling youth. Moreover, you should have a background in nature conservation and very good English language skills.
The host organisation, Kikoma Parents School (KPS), provides quality education for children in the town of Wobulenzi, in Luweero District in central Uganda. As part of its educational programme, KPS also raises awareness in the community on environmental conservation, public health, nutrition, hygiene, and sanitation in rural settings. Currently, the school has 25 staff members and collaborates with the Ugandan Orthodox Church.
As a GLEN participant, you would support KPS staff in their teaching on various subject matters. In addition, you would inspire students and share your own knowledge and skills with KPS staff members. You would engage in organising awareness-raising workshops for community members and assist KPS staff in facilitating and monitoring these sessions.
The scheduled time for the internship is between July and September 2018.
Training and seminars prior to the internship will be held in English.
