Working on this program, volunteers get the chance to get immersed into the lifestyle of one of the most beautiful parts of the country, whilst working with children from the ages of 2 and upwards. You will be concentrating on basic education, including literacy and math and also art and craft projects. Classes are structured and interactive with lots of different activities for the children to master.
