Volunteer in The Maldives with Travel Teacher | How you could join our partner program in 2018
Travel Teacher | Volunteer in The Maldives
Exciting news, we are extremely proud and excited to announce a new addition to our expedition offer. In partnership with Secret Paradise Maldives and SunsHADe Volunteers, Travel Teacher will be bringing meaningful travel to local islands in the Maldives from early 2018.
Travel and Teach in The Maldives
Our volunteers / meaningful travellers will be supporting projects at a local non profit pre school- Heducare pre school offering support with English language to students aged 4-10. The school is not a government school, but a school operated by Huvadhoo aid - a local island charity. The program focus will be on extending learning beyond the classroom in a fun, engaging manner.
Travel Teachers pre departure preparation will provide full training, guidance and support to all volunteers who sign up for this unique expedition.
In addition to supporting the development of education in the school, participants will have the opportunity to engage in wider community projects including coral farming, beach cleaning, mangrove restoration, renovation works and tree planting.
Our program model will remain true to our philosophy of combining education and exploration with an excellent offer of local experiences - participants will immerse themselves deep within the local island culture and see through the eyes of those who live within it.
Activities included in our expedition will be snorkelling on uninhibited islands, playing sports with the locals, dolphin watching, island hopping and night fishing. These activities will assist in developing our volunteers intercultural skills and awareness of the world around them. We are very excited by this unique program offer.
