Learning by giving
I have welcome mainly Canadians that came to teach at the local school. Some choose to go live in my native village and help the women working in the fields. If you do not have specific skills, let's see your volunteer work as a way to integrate with us. If you only come for a few days, you could just visit the projects or spend an afternoon at the school and talk to the kids about your country. If you want to come for a longer period then we could integrate you in a more specific program. Helping teaching English is always useful, but proper teaching would ask you to stay for a longer period. So if you would like to teach, plan to stay around 3 weeks minimum. To work in my village, a few days would be sufficient.
