Education is one of the most proven ways of breaking the poverty cycle in developing countries such as Philippines and for this reason we emphasize on the importance of education program for the volunteers. As a volunteer in the teaching program in Philippines you can also get involved with education to help enhance and develop students’ skills, particularly in reading, writing and speaking in English, as well as Mathematics and Science. Volunteers looking for teaching volunteer opportunities abroad can join this program to get amazing international work experience. Having a teaching volunteer is an advantage for an understaffed school. Also in this manner, grade school pupils are provided the chance to improve their English language skill. We also have placements in Special Education (SPED) schools to assist teacher in mentoring physically and mentally challenged elementary pupils. Specifically, the school mentors deaf, mute, and autistic children. This is a great opportunity for participants with the skills to mentor the children. Participants joining the Teaching Project are placed in rural towns near Tacloban city. The minimum project duration requirement for the program is 2 weeks.

In the Philippines, English is taught from grade one and most classes are conducted in English. Since students are also required to also learn Filipino, the national language, learning English is an arduous task for them. Most rural classes are overcrowded and lack sufficient textbooks and teaching material. The poverty rate is especially high in rural areas of Leyte, resulting in a number of parents not sending their children to school for financial reasons. Many of the children who attend school do not have adequate school supplies. But the children are eager students who especially welcome the opportunity to be taught by a foreign teacher.
