Primary schools for children, Nairobi
In this teaching program, you will be teaching children under the age of 4 who live in Prison with their mothers. In Kenya, the women in prison keep their children with them until they reach 4 years of age, so the prisons have schools for these children to be able to learn while they are living there. You will be assisting the local Kenyan teacher with daily tasks for these children, which could be from setting up the classroom, to playing with them, helping with lunchtime, and basic pre-primary teaching skills.
