Volunteer

We welcome volunteers to give us a hand at Lesedi and will probably be able to find a role for you regardless of your skills/experience or the amount of time you can commit.

We are particularly interested in volunteer placements from teachers to help in the following subjects, from preschool to Grade 4:

  • Maths
  • English
  • Environmental studies
  • Religious studies
  • Computers
  • Physical education and general sports

We are also interested in vocational training for adults in the community in the following disciplines:

  • Carpentry
  • Metal fabrication
  • Garment cutting and designing
  • Toy making and art in general
  • Building
  • Other disciplines of use to the community

Volunteers are expected to work under the supervision of a local teacher or school head.

For a fully immersive experience, volunteers can be accommodated locally: at the teachers' cottage, staying with families in the community or at Benson's village home. Alternatively it is possible to stay in Victoria Falls town and travel to the village each day.
