Abolove-Nolopi JHS, Keta District

Abolove-Nolopi JHS is a small school situated in between the two villages of Abolove and Nolopi and is a 15-minute drive from the provisional capital Akatsi. You will be living in a close-knit, friendly community. 

Your Project

You will be teaching in the Junior High School, although the need changes regularly you will probably be teaching English as well as other subjects including Maths, Science, Expressive Arts and Social Sciences.  This means we need you to use your initiative and energy to throw yourselves into all the opportunities in your community. You will be provided with textbooks that you can use to plan and prepare lessons, delivering the whole syllabus. 

In the primary school, taking on classes can mean quite a variety of things, depending on your interest and the needs of the students. Basic literacy is a challenge for the younger students, who often have incorporated learning for the first three years of primary school with a combination of English and Ewe spoken in the classroom. 

Extracurricular activities are strongly encouraged at both schools; there are opportunities for football and other sports, a reading club as well as helping with homework. This project demands dedication, initiative and creativity. Ultimately it will be up to you to fill your timetable full of lessons and activities. 

Accommodation

You will live in the village in a room adjoined to a larger house that belongs to the landlord. It is a basic room with a bed and storage facilities. You will have access to a small kitchen where you can store food but you will mostly cook outside. Your bathroom facilities will be basic but clean. 

Your living allowance provided by Project Trust will cover your daily living costs.
