Thousands of teachers around the world do not get the necessary training and support, and as a consequence pupils do not reach their full potential. VSO is working to change this.

This program improves children’s foundational English and Mathematic skills across all government schools in one district and is part of the ‘Building Learning Foundations’ program. This program focuses on establishing solid foundations at the lower primary level in all of Rwanda’s state-funded primary schools. Improvements in learner outcomes in the lower primary grades are intended to improve children’s learning achievement in higher grades and so increase equitable access to primary and secondary education for girls and boys across the country.

As a VSO volunteer, you will immerse yourself in a new culture, face fresh challenges and develop your expertise, and often also management skills while doing something truly fulfilling. The local office or partner’s need will decide your exact job description.
