Hi all! I have taken the opportunity to volunteer in Marrakech, Morocco to support the teaching of basic maths in Orphanages and care centres. I will be flying out on the 26th of July with the company, Original Volunteers. I am currently studying A-level maths at CSIA and I thought that I could use this to teach the children on this trip. I am hoping that being able to work one to one with these children will give them confidence and the opportunity to spend time with someone who cares. Whilst I am there for the 2 weeks, I hope to gain an understanding of a completely different culture to my own as well as further my own confidence. I am currently volunteering at a primary school near me so that I can further my experience with different age groups. I have been told by this company that my enthusiasm in maths will greatly help these children. Hopefully with my fundraising, I will be able to take some valuable resources for example pens, pencils, maths books and basic sports equipment with me that I can leave behind to help them with future learning and development.
I am hoping to get 100 people to donate £5 to allow me to purchase all the resources for the schools I will be attending.
***But please feel free to donate more if you can possibly afford it!
