I lived at Amapondo backpackers for two weeks in June 2016 and participated as a volunteer at the pre-school. It was such an amazing experience to work with these young kids every day and it was a privilege working together with the amazing staff at Amapondo pre school, they are dedicated to providing the best education for the children there its a great environment, would highly recommend volunteering here! :)
I stayed in PSJ for 4 weeks in January 2017 and assisted at PSJ Junior Secondary School. I had a lovely time. I helped in Grade R (the youngest children). I assisted the class teacher in everything needed, e.g. writing, drawing, checking homework. As the number of pupils per class is high, helping hands are needed!
The accommodation at the Amapondo backpackers was very good, everyone was very friedly. There was always the possibility to get in touch with other people (stuff, tourists, locals), but also to spend a relaxed time, e.g. at the beach or during a hike.
It was a great experience, because everyday school life was very different compared to Germany. I highly recommend to participate in the project!
I am doing my German weltwärts year with the ACP which means that I volunteer at the Junior Secondary School. Working with the kids and teaching them English and "Special Life Skills" shows how you can actually make a difference. You don't need to study teaching or anything, you just teach the skills that you have learned in your life.
It can be anything! Music, sports, arts... Whatever you're good at.
Also living here in the location with the locals opens my mind for a completly different culture.
So if you're open minded, want to see and experience life different, just come here and make a difference!!! :)
