Getting involved with the English programme is a fantastic opportunity for those who want to contribute to SEED Madagascar's work, in the charming coastal town of Fort Dauphin in south east Madagascar.
As a volunteer, you will have the opportunity to work on a range of educational schemes, gaining a valuable insight to the many challenges faced by communities living in and around Fort Dauphin, Madagascar, while making a real difference to the lives of some of the poorest people on the planet.
Working closely with the dedicated team of long-term volunteers and staff, you will receive an all-round experience in the workings of a small but well established international charity, gaining vital skills for a future career in development or teaching, acquiring credit towards a college or university course, or simply sharing your time with those in need of it most, and making friends for life.
Gain teaching or teaching assistant experience in a least developed country.
Contribute to the sustainability of local English teaching by training teachers and thereby building capacity.
Support local business people and other members of the community in improving their spoken English to boost trade and tourism.
Have an opportunity to create resources that support sustainability for future English lessons.
