Frequently Asked Questions

    • Are there any specific times when schools are closed and do the programs still run

      In April, October & late December schools are closed and there are also several Festivals throughout the
      year which causes school to close for a short period of time. We always operate alternative activities such as holiday summer camps.

      Yes of course you can! We have a Long term teaching internship program (24-week duration) that runs alongside this project, you will have specific training and complete a leadership course and we will give
      you a certificate after participation on project and this can act as a reference to your University or any future employer. Please do inquire for more information on this program option.
