Through Ssamba Foundation’s teach German abroad Uganda program, you can get involved with a complete range of German language teaching activities. You can help in taking normal classes at the local high school or assisting the teaching staff at the community language training centre.
Ssamba Foundation is looking for volunteers to teach German language at our local high school and community language centre in Mukono district of Uganda. This is an enriching and satisfying experience where the volunteer get the opportunity to teach children and adults who are eager to improve their conversational German skills.
The volunteer will work primarily as an instructor of German language in our school and community centre. The volunteer may also be asked to assist in other activities such as sports and other extra-curricular projects. The placement consists of teaching the subject of German to school children and community adults for 2 to 4 lessons of a day, with each period running for 45 minutes.
Germany operates the world’s biggest outbound tourist trade – an impressive statistic considering the fact that is among the 13 countries on the planet hosting bigger populations. In short, Germans understand the value of international travel.
At Ssamba Foundation, we have also been impressed with the sense of conviction German travelers feel when it comes to giving back to the places they visit. Here at Ssamba Foundation, two out of five of our volunteers come from Germany. That’s a substantial chunk of our volunteer base, which is why we’re anxious to design and implement volunteer programs that are accessible and meaningful to volunteers from Germany.
Volunteer Opportunities for German Volunteers
If you’re thinking about taking some time to volunteer abroad, be sure to explore opportunities in Uganda. This is a country as suitable for independent travelers as it is for package tourists, with plenty of exciting opportunities for adventurers from Germany. Uganda, with its jungle canopied mountains, tropical rivers and diverse mix of ethnic groups is particularly well-suited for anyone intent on getting off the well-worn tourist path and making a difference in the process.
There are plenty of different opportunities for our German volunteers. In our experience, our German volunteers often have a very strong command of English, including the complexities of English grammar. These abilities allow our volunteers from Germany, to provide great benefit in our teaching projects. Working with schools and with children are also popular project selections for volunteers from Germany.
The German teacher will be required to teach 5 days a week. Saturday and Sunday are days off for the volunteer to enjoy some free time and there are occasional public holidays during the school term. Depending on school size, class numbers vary from 15-60 in a class.
If you have additional skills in extra-curricular activities such as: teaching games, music, painting, singing, dancing, yoga, martial arts etc, then you are most welcome to incorporate this into the Uganda German language teaching program.
