Date: 9-21 July 2017 + A training session with representative of Teach For Malaysia on 7 July 2017
Venue: SK Temuno Teringai Darat & SK Tumunda Salimandut, Sabah, Malaysia
Participants: 30 Volunteers
Goals for Project Teringai-Tumunda:
- To foster noticeable progress within the kids’ academic skills
- To inspire the children to discover & learn not just academic wise, but in other aspects such as team-building, communication skills through activities such as art, singing & drawing
- To inspire the children to challenge themselves, & motivate them to further their study to secondary school level by instilling the importance of knowledge and correct attitude in the kids
- To raise awareness of basic healthcare & cleanliness education in the kids
Deadline for volunteers’ application is 9 April 2017. Shortlisted applicant will be contacted via email after the deadline (9 April 2017) for a get-to-know you session via Skype. Volunteers’ spot will only be confirmed if the candidate successfully passed the interview stage.
Volunteers will be involved in mentoring Primary Six students, guiding & preparing for their upcoming UPSR examination, carry out team building activities and bring joy & fun to the school children! After school hours, you will also find yourself being surrounded by a wonderful team of like-minded individuals with whom you will forge long lasting friendships, exchange stories, and build unforgettable memories.
It will definitely be an enriching experience as a volunteer – you will be able to experience a simple lifestyle in a quaint village such as bathing in a river and spending two whole weeks with zero data and internet connection (yes, that’s right – no getting up in the morning to scroll through Facebook, Instagram and Twitter).
