The project ??Bring ?out-of-school? children to school?? is underway promoting education to less privileged children and orphans. It looks to make English language accessible by giving teaching services to allow speaking, reading and writing in English to take place. The population of children in the surrounding area grew significantly in 2016- 2017. This has led to higher imbalance in student to classrooms ratio. By bringing out-of-school children to school, we hope to reduce involuntary marriages, illiteracy prevalence, child prostitution, drug abuse, early marriages/pregnancies, joblessness and social crimes down by 60% by 2023 and make communities self sustainable and sufficient by 2030. Between January-March 2018 we have lost 42 students into streets due to lack of enough English teachers in 2015-2017 that is why we need volunteers/interns helping hands! We need to bring balance and stop. Your work is to prepare lessons, teach in classroom/ physical education/ computer. Build warm environment, mentor and nurture students, role model, and listen and look for signs of trouble. We need 2 English grammar teachers 2 English composition writing teachers 2 teachers for reading 2 computer theory/practical teachers Conversational English teachers
