If you are a teacher in a school in the UK and would like to host a teacher from one of the Sierra Leone schools we work with we would love to hear from you. The purpose of making these connections is so that you can help and assist your guest teacher and give them a greater insight into teaching. Some of the teachers we work with have the equivalent of GCSE qualifications and knowledge and so the experience they will gain from accompanying you is invaluable.
This would be a great way to get your class or the whole school involved, beginning with fundraising so that we can fly your guest teacher over to the UK. We would require you or someone from your school to host the teacher in your/their home for the duration of the stay (all teachers speak a good level of English so there should be no communication problems).
Hosting a teacher is a really fantastic opportunity for you as well as your guest teacher. It helps to build a long-lasting relationship between your corresponding schools and you will be helping to better and shape the lives of the children in our schools in Sierra Leone.
We understand that this is a big commitment however our team will be there every step of the way to help you fundraise, plan for their visit and answer any questions you might have. Please contact us and we would be more than happy to arrange a visit to your school and give you some further information.
