Volunteer vacancies in Sierra Leone and UK.

2 Senior Volunteer teachers urgently needed

Home Leone needs your help.  Are you wondering how you can enjoyably use your teaching experience to transform the lives of some of the world’s poorest children? Now retired or taking a break, this is an amazing opportunity.

Home Leone is a Christian NGO with a vision to move the first 2,000 people to its new pilot “Destiny” village out of the horrific slums of Freetown, Sierra Leone. 

This unique social enterprise is offering slum solutions that can transform a nation. We have nearly built the first 32 homes and 4 school classrooms.  We have 8 business units and a health centre.  The water and power plans are all on track.

We are looking for 2 key people, one to live in Sierra Leone and the other in the UK.

1                     In Sierra Leone we need a head teacher who is up for the challenge to start a school. Sierra Leone education is largely broken, where less than 50% of children progress beyond primary school. The Head will live in Sierra Leone, recruit and train the teachers, determine the curriculum, with the Director of education and manage the school (with wider Home Leone support).  Here we would like an initial commitment of 2 years to get the school functioning effectively.


2                     We want a UK based Director of Education that can help us find materials, equipment and curriculum.  Also to connect us with schools to twin and build relationship across the nations.  Also to help us fund raise for additional buildings and school support.


Our website is  If you would like to talk about either roles, please ring Nigel Hyde on 07961 576769 or e mail at  This is a great chance to implement your best ideas in a green field environment.

Teach in Moldova.





Are you looking for an opportunity to serve God in a European country where there is an openness to the Gospel?


The country is the poorest in Europe – the former Soviet Republic of Moldova.


EMANUEL CHURCH, CAHUL, serves the surrounding community in a variety of ways, among them by offering English courses to adults, young people, and children from the age of 8 to 11. We use Oxford Headway and Masterclass materials with adults and young people, and Sprint materials with children.


At the same time as providing quality teaching, our aim, through PRAYER and the moving of the Spirit of God, is to build strong trusting RELATIONSHIPS with our students, to lead them to see that the church is RELEVANT to them, to give them SPACE to ask their questions, to interest them in the GOOD NEWS and show them how they can come to Jesus Christ for LIFE.


We are looking for qualified Christian teachers who will be willing to serve alongside other teachers by taking some of the classes for the 400-plus students we have on roll.


Government regulations currently permit citizens of many countries, including the UK, EU countries, the USA and Canada, Australia and New Zealand to stay in the country for 90 days without a visa requirement. We arrange the obtaining of a residence permit with you after your arrival to allow you to stay beyond 90 days.


You will be expected to make your own arrangements to travel to and from Moldova, for any insurances, and, should your country not be listed in the examples above, for your visa to enter Moldova if one is required for citizens of your country. We ask you to cover the costs of your residence permit or visa.


The church pays the equivalent of a local teacher’s salary according to the   number of hours worked, and is happy to provide accommodation rent-free to teachers teaching a full timetable.


You would come at the invitation of, and serve under the leadership of, Emanuel Church, which welcomes Christians of all denominations and is part of the Baptist Union of Moldova.


If you sense God's call and would like further information, please email Mr Chris Elston, at this email address:
