Day to day life on Volunteer Zambia

You will have your own individual schools and community to work with each day for 6 weeks. Each pair of student volunteers will be allocated their own personal placement, with mornings/early afternoons dedicated to assisting in generic curriculum PE sessions for children from schools, and the afternoons spent coaching established sports teams in football, netball, basketball or volleyball.
