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