Kenya-Dorf Volunteers (KEDOVO e.V) is a registered Non-Profit Organisation based in Germany, that facilitates sustainable livelihood development projects for the communities of Central Province Kenya.
The Project objective is to help fight poverty through education as well as promoting cultural exchange.
The Teaching project is based in the Nyeri North area with a magnificient view of Mt.Kenya to the northeast.
With the introduction of free primary education from the Kenyan government there are a number of rural Primary, Secondary and Technical schools that are seriously underfunded and do not have sufficient teachers or resources.
At this volunteer project, depending on the experience or skills of a volunteer she /he will be teaching at one of the four rural primary schools, Two secondary schools and Two Technical colleges that we have identified to work with initially. A volunteer is required to have independent thinking and be in a position to adapt to foreign culture and different teaching methods.
The volunteers in this program will teach in schools with children from the rural community who mostly come from harsh economic backgrounds and in some cases children with special needs ; ie Orphans and Vulnerable chidren.
The Nursery and Primary schools programs requires less specific skills. The volunteers on the teaching projects, do not need to be qualified or experienced teachers to participate. The volunteers will work and assist the local teachers with daily class teachings in English, Mathematics, History, Social Studies, Geography, Art and Music etc A volunteer in our teaching placements can also teach other non subjects in the schools eg Sports from the volunteer's country of origin, Music, Hygiene etc
