Do you want to make a real difference to children from disadvantaged backgrounds but don't know where to begin? 

There are many children who do not have access to basic learning opportunities.

They have never read a book; they do not have exposure to the English Language; many of them do not go to school. 

Join us in making a difference in the lives of these 4-6-year-old children by being Volunteer Teachers.
