Overview

Like most of the developing nations, illiteracy is still a prevalent social problem in Sri Lanka. While there are several private schools in urban areas providing standard education, public schools lack adequate resources and facilities. Volunteering Solutions, in association with local organizations, aims to improve the standard of education in the public (or government) schools, 
providing free education to children, and is therefore in greater demand, especially for parents from poorer rural communities who lack the resources to put their children in private schools.

The better-funded private schools are obviously well-equipped with good teachers and thus, there's no parity between the students studying in private & public schools. The main focus of this volunteering program is to teach English (speaking, reading & writing) to the children attending public schools.

You can think of creative ways to involve the children in activity-based learning and also help the teachers to polish their existing skills. Apart from teaching English, you can also focus on other subjects like Maths, General Knowledge as well as co-curricular activities. And above all, shower the kids with the utmost love and care, and be a 'friend-philosopher-guide' for them!
