Teach in a school for orphans and extremely poor children. You can teach a variety of subjects, including English, Maths, Sports or any academic subjects. If you have skills or knowledge of Drama, Dance, Music or Arts & Crafts, you'll be able to teach these as well.
You will normally assist the teachers with informal teaching to start with, but, depending on your ability, you may be given complete control of a particular class or group. You will receive a lot of help and support from the teachers and staff at the schools to help you prepare for your lessons and settle you into your role.
You will generally be asked to help out with any age groups. You are, in fact, very likely to be in popular demand everywhere - in and out of the classroom. The school is quite small and incredibly basic - you will feel part of the family immediately!

"Thank you so much for organising everything in Zambia! I had an unbelievable time! It was such a wonderful school and the pupils were so friendly and willing to learn (as were the teachers). I made so many new friends and discovered that I really did enjoy doing this kind of thing! Livingstone was a great place to be as it had amazing character and was so close to Victoria Falls. It was an amazing experience and one which I will never forget, I'll be sure to pass on the word to people" Hamish Brown
