Teaching Teachers English Project
Volunteer at Lex Orandi School - Summer 2016
At Lex Orandi School, we offer an opportunity for education to be used as a tool for Burundi’s development. Because teachers are a key part of our mission to provide quality education, you can help us make a real impact on our students’ learning. Starting in June 2015, we are inviting enthusiastic volunteers to come to Lex Orandi for 2 - 6 weeks for our Teaching Teachers English project.
Because Burundi is a French-speaking country and the education sector is severely under resourced, our students will miss out on employment and education opportunities unless they have a firm grasp of English. Unfortunately, even though our teachers have taken rudimentary English classes, they do not have many opportunities to practice or even hear native speakers. With your help, our teachers can improve their pronunciation and grammar, which will lead to better instruction in the classroom.
First-time visitors to Burundi are often humbled and enriched by their experience here — we believe that you will learn as much from our teachers as they will from you.
Welcome to Burundi!
