With half of the populations especially in the Maasai village lack access to the quality educations services. The interested volunteers will be placed in the local primary and secondary schools to teach any subject of their interests or any other extra curricula activities. The volunteers will also assist the teachers in the classrooms. Volunteers can also team up with teachers in teaching other program such as sports and games.
