Pencott Valley School is situated in an urban slum on the outskirts of Mbale, a small city in the east of Uganda. We have partnered with Philip, Director, to see improvements in both the infrastructure of the school and in the standard of teaching. This school prides itself in being able to provide free places to children living in the area who cannot afford the school fees. Many of these children are orphans living with extended family. There will be a number of different areas to get involved in at the school.
For teachers interested in this trip there will be an opportunity to spend time with the school staff to help improve the standard of teaching and learning at the school, as well as delivering lessons to the children.
Those without teaching qualifications are still welcome to join the team, taking sports training and/or another skill they can pass on to the children whilst the teachers are receiving training. Finally there are plenty of painting and maintenance projects, so anyone with skills in these areas are also welcome. This year we would love to paint some bright murals on the walls.
We are looking for anyone willing to pick up a paint brush, a spade or a football … potentially all three (but not at the same time). The children are always looking to improve their English so we are also wanting ... well ... anyone who can speak English!!
