VOLUNTEER PRIMARY SCHOOL TEACHER NEEDED

Position Description
YAAPHA organization has three centers for the Tanzanian people in the regions of Tabora and Kigoma and Katavi. Ukombozi Primary  School is in Urambo- TABORA for orphans or underprivileged children under the age of seven; Ukombozi school has approximately 1200 pupils and due to lack of funds they do not have sufficient teachers to meet all the educational requirements of it's students.(until now we have only 15 teachers and the demand is 40) Therefore, any volunteer teaching assistant would be most welcome. Volunteers are needed to do one-to-one teaching, assist teachers in their classroom activities or depending on each volunteer's past experience and maturity he/she may be asked to conduct their own classes.
Some of the compulsory subjects that a volunteer teaching assistant may be asked to conduct are mathematics, computer science or social science. The school would also welcome volunteers who would like to: participate in physical education programs or sport activities, conduct art and crafts sessions or a music appreciation session,(singing and dancing). Some of these activities may have to be arranged to be conducted during school breaks or after school. Volunteers may also be asked to help plan and participate in school events such as outings for the children.
A volunteer teaching assistant at Ukombozi Primary School is certainly needed in numerous teaching endeavors and any volunteer who is contemplating a career in the teaching field would obtain an unlimited amount of experience at this placement. It all would depend on the volunteer's efforts and commitment.

Ukombozi Primary School hopes to initiate and implement cultural exchange between Tanzania and overseas countries by developing opportunities between the school and volunteers from abroad.














Volunteer Tasks Required
Lesson Planning
A volunteer teaching assistant would work with the teachers involved to create a well structured lesson plan for the students that the volunteer would strictly adhere to. The volunteer may also discuss with the teachers at this time extracurricular activities that he/she may be interested in participating in with the pupils.
Teach in the Classroom
A volunteer teaching assistant would execute the lessons planned; ensuring that the students are understanding the material and are engaged in the lesson. If they determine that this is not the case then the volunteer would seek out the teacher involved and discuss any necessary changes.
Create Tests and Exams
Volunteer teaching assistants would prepare tests and/or exams on the subject or subjects they taught or if they were assisting a teacher in a classroom in a particular subject they would assist the teacher to prepare the tests or exams, if appropriate. After the tests or exams the volunteer would be expected to mark them and then follow-up if any lessons were needed to reinforce what was supposed to have been learned. At Ukombozi Primary School tests or exams are conducted once a month.
Tutoring & Games
A volunteer teaching assistant is always welcome to help students after school room hours who are struggling with any of the material you or other teachers have been teaching them. During breaks, it would also be appreciated if the volunteer participated in school games or if the volunteer taught the students new games, especially those that incorporate the English language.

YOUTH OUTREACH VOLUNTEER NEEDED

Position Description
YAAPHA's work provides community based, child focused and educational oriented programs which work to provide long term support to the at risk children of northern Tanzania.
YAAPHA needs volunteers who are willing to help with the many endeavors that the organization participates in.
A youth outreach volunteer at this placement would be expected to go out with staff into the areas where youth at risk reside; evaluate the kind of life style they are forced to live in and determine the critical support they need to enable them to leave their present situations and become employed in occupations that provide them with a respectful way of making a living for themselves and sometimes their families. These observations by the volunteers and staff would be documented in individual files and kept at YAAPHA's office.
Unfortunately many of these at risk youth have been forced into prostitution at a very young age and see no way out of their situations. YAAPHA staff work hard to reach out to these young people and explain to them the dangers encountered in their present way of life and a avenue to pursue that would enable them to live a safer and more comfortable life.
Counseling for these youth goes side by side with teaching them basic entrepreneurship skills such as how to manage small businesses, marketing strategies as well as customer care skills where this could help them to broaden their horizons of creating job opportunities.
A youth outreach volunteer may also be involved in the organization's community based child support program. Organization at times got report children/youth at risk who live with no parental support in the communities. Staff from the YAAPHA visit these children and assess their current situations and what help they most urgently need. They provide them with school supplies when appropriate and inform them about children rights.

A mature and emotionally stable volunteer with the basic skill and ability of working with youth/kids who are at risk would be a great asset at this placement.


Volunteer Tasks Required
Youth at Risk Outreach Program
A youth outreach volunteer at this placement would be expected to work alongside the local staff from the organization where they go out into the streets and villages to reach out to the street kids that are at risk and do assessments of each child's situation. Then offer various means of support for them to enable them to improve their current lot in life.
Counseling
A youth outreach volunteer may be asked to participate in various forms of counseling for street kids. This may include sessions on the high risk of contracting AIDS and preventive measures that should be used to lesson the danger. Many of these street kids are sexually abused girls, as well as young girls who are doing prostitution as a result of the hardships of life they and sometimes their families live in.
Life Skills Training
A youth outreach volunteer would be expected to work with the local staff to provide life skills training to the youth at risk. This training would be mainly provided to street kids and young girls who are being used for prostitution.
Office Work
A youth outreach volunteer would be expected to assist in various office duties e.g.-- consulting with the youth that come to the office seeking help, organizing the office files, helping to organize the projects and recording data into the computer.
Entrepreneurship Training
A youth outreach volunteer may be asked to help with different training projects on entrepreneurship to the older youth to teach them how to be self-reliance. The tasks may include teaching how to run small businesses, marketing strategies and customer care.

EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION VOLUNTEER NEEDED

Position Description
Volunteer English teachers are needed at this placement to provide English lessons to both the children and the mamas at YAAPHA house . Learning how to speak English is a very important skill set for a person in Moshi in order to obtain many of the more desirable and better paying jobs.
The children who live at YAAPHA House usually come from very difficult situations and most have experienced quite a bit of tragedy in their young lives. As a result, they are more at risk of having challenges finding employment because they have been marginalized within their community.
A volunteer English teacher who is willing to help these children and the mamas at YAAPHA House improve their English skills would be helping to increase the chances of the children finding employment in the years to come and consequently a brighter future.
Currently there is only one mama at the center who is able to speak English. This is a challenge for the organization because the children are not being forced to practice their English, therefore their English speaking skills are very limited. A volunteer English teacher would not only give English lessons but would also encourage conversations in English at other times in the house so all could benefit -- an example would be at mealtime.
Although YAAPHA House has only ten children who live at the centre but they still require additional assistance in helping to make sure that the house is clean and well kept. There are three mamas that work at the house, all doing different tasks. Only one of which is a full-time staff, as the organization can not sustain more than one full-time person.
The three mamas that work at YAAPHA House rotate their work during the day; while one mama is cleaning the house another mama is washing clothes and the third is preparing lunch for the children. Volunteer English teachers at this placement would be expected to take part in these chores. The house is big, so it requires work to keep it clean and the children properly cared for.
Volunteers may be asked to assist with basic childcare needs like: buying groceries at the market or numerous other household chores that would be of great assistance in the house.














Volunteer Tasks Required
Teach English
Most of the English teaching at this placement would be informal. The English practiced would be during games or other after school activities that you had developed. However, for the mamas, structured English lessons during the day would be appreciated.
Childcare
A volunteer English teacher at YAAPHA House would be asked to assist the mama's with washing the children, washing their clothing, helping them to get ready for classes, as well as assisting at mealtime in both the cooking and feeding of the children.
General Household Duties
The mama's are incredibly busy, so they appreciate any help they can get from the volunteer English teachers in regards to: the cleaning of the house, tending to the garden as well as helping them fetch supplies from town.
Proposal/Grant Research & Writing
YAAPHA can always use more assistance; they would appreciate volunteers who are able to research opportunities for them to receive grants and assist them in the writing of these. Updating the information on their website and brochures that are circulated in town would also be of great assistance.
Organize Games
A volunteer English teacher would be expected to develop and implement games for the children not in school that would teach the English language in a fun and enjoyable manner. These games may involve singing or dancing activities and should encourage the children to interact with each other. The goal is to create a warm and happy learning environment for the children.

GOOD EXAMPLE

Silke tried much to teach the children Sawhili lesson. Watch this short video when She was teaching.!!!!


ONGOING PROJECT

Title:   Vocational Skills Training for Youth Empowerment

Youth In Action Against Poverty and HIV/AIDS.(YAAPHA), a Tanzanian community-based community support and development organization, is seeking grant funding of $22,300 over two years to expand its vocational training and HIV/AIDS education programs. 

About YAAPHA


YAAPHA was founded in 2011 to provide social and economic development programs and services to the people of Kaloleni ward, Pasua and Bomambuzi , the most populous informal settlement in Kilimanjaro Region.  Approximately 55% of the population in Kaloleni ward is between 15 and 30 years, unemployed and affected by a high HIV/AIDS infection rate.  With the aim of alleviating the extreme poverty faced by these communities, YAAPHA  provides programming in a range of areas, including health outreach, youth mentoring and leadership, family counselling and self-help for women, environmental stewardship and HIV/AIDS awareness and care.  It also runs a community drop-in centre.  YAAPHA  is a small, grassroots organization and is a registered charity with the Tanzanian government.  It is supported by six full-time staff, who are experienced youth support workers, skills trainers and health educators, and a team of volunteers.  In 2012, YAAPHA  was recognized by the Government of Tanzania for its efforts in creating development opportunities for young people. Title:   Vocational Skills Training for Youth Empowerment

Proposal Synopsis

Currently, three- to six month training courses are being offered by YAAPHA  in tailoring, masonry, music and computers with the aim of increasing education and employment rates.  The labour skills taught in these courses are in high demand in Tanzania's informal sector, which is expected by the Tanzanian government to grow by three times over the next decades as trade markets expand in the East African Community.  The government is currently investing in the promotion of the sector in recognition of its economic potential.  Computer competency and HIV/AIDS education are standard components of all skills training programs. 

With new grant funding, YAAPHA  proposes to expand its tailoring training program and introduce six-month welding/metal work courses to meet demand for opportunities in these areas.  Priority for enrolment will be given to the communities' most vulnerable members, including youth, single mothers and commercial sex workers.  YAAPHA  will introduce career counselling, small business management/entrepreneurship training and, to the extent possible, internship opportunities.  It will also offer graduates linkages to its network of micro-credit organizations to facilitate self-employment.  As with all other training programs, these courses will be used as a forum to deliver HIV/AIDS prevention and care education to participants.

Targeted Results

By providing education, employable skills and assistance in finding employment or starting a business, YAAPHA  will empower participants — particularly, women and youth — and help to break the cycle of poverty within these communities over the longer term.  Specifically, YAAPHA  is targeting 40 graduates per year from each of its tailoring and welding/metal work courses, or 160 over the two years of the project grant (an addition to the 40 people already graduating per year from each of the computer and masonry programs, and 25 scheduled to graduate this year from the new music program). 

Over the two years that YAAPHA has offered tailoring skills training, 15% of its graduates have been employed, while 25% are now self-employed and 10% plan to pursue training in small business management. (Note that tailoring is typically a trade with high-levels of self-employment.)  With the addition of internship placement, counselling and support for graduates, YAAPHA  will target 60% self-employment and 40% direct employment for tailoring graduates.  It will target 25% self-employment and 75% direct employment for welding/metal work graduates. 

The HIV/AIDS education offered to the 40 participants in each of these training programs each year will have both direct and indirect benefits, as participants share new knowledge about prevention and care with extended family members and dependents.  















Project Governance

This project will be managed by a Project Coordinator, who is trained in business administration, accounting and project management and is an experienced community development worker.  The Project Coordinator will be accountable to YAAPHA's Board of Directors and will be supported by a project administrator.  The Project Coordinator will work with a Community Support Worker to identify program participants on the basis of economic need, level of education and aptitude.  Two course instructors have been identified who have significant experience in their fields and hold diplomas from the recognized Institutes of Tanzania.  HIV/AIDS training will be delivered by current  YAAPHA health care volunteers (already trained/experienced). 

Monitoring and Evaluation

Monitoring of implementation against the project schedule and milestones will be continuous, led by the Project Coordinator.  Two surveys of participants will be used in year one: the first to analyze participants' needs and objectives at the time of enrolment, and the second to evaluate successes and areas for improvement after project implementation.  This information and lessons learned will be applied to the project effectiveness in year two (and improve YAAPHA's other skills training programs, as appropriate).  Both short-term deliverables (e.g., enrolment and graduation rates) and long-term performance measures (e.g., employment and self-employment rates upon graduation and six-months out) will be tracked.  A twice-yearly project report will be presented to YAAPHA's Board of Directors and partner organizations.


Requested Budget Narrative (2-year Totals, $US)

$1560: Leased training space (space YAAPHA currently uses for courses is at maximum capacity)
$1800: Welding/metal workshop space preparation (as will be first time course offering)
$6000: Trainer’s salary ($250 total x 24 months each/month)
