Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
A collaboration between Soroptimists International Damansara and Just Volunteers!
Sponsored by the Azman Hashim Foundation
This programme requires volunteers all year round.
Commitment of 10-12 weeks.
A programme to help improve literacy, spoken English and self confidence, among underprivileged local children living in orphanages and Myanmar refugees in an informal refugee school .
Most of our volunteers at present are needed to teach the Myanmar refugee children. (These children have no access to formal schooling in Malaysia). Volunteers teach English, basic maths and other subjects. The majority of the volunteers also spend part of their week helping children after school at a local home. (Working week is 5 days and approximately 35 hours).
BBBB needs enthusiastic volunteers who want to make a difference in these children’s lives.
One of the local Muslim homes we work with also takes full-time volunteers who stay at the home. This is a worthwhile and challenging assignment for the right person.
Volunteers at the refugee school and other homes are provided with a private bedroom in a shared flat.
If you have an interest in any of these assignments please contact us for more information.
