IEI Pakistan is undertaking a School Development Project (SDP) at the Government Middle School Shimshal during the year 2019. This program is a unique opportunity for volunteers to share their knowledge & skills in their specific domains to elevate the curriculum, pedagogy & administration standards of this remote public school. They can join for 4 – 12 Weeks In-Residence program from March to December 2019.
Volunteers will commit 12 days to the program activities with 3-4hr daily engagement. Volunteers are required to participate in all program activities.
Volunteers will manage their travel to location independently. We do not guarantee group travel of volunteers as each may choose an option that best suits them.
Volunteers will participate in expert-led training workshops prior to departure, that nurture storytelling & creative skills.
Volunteers will follow a daily program work plan shared by IEI. The plan will provide the structure for daily activities during the course of the programme.
Volunteers will engage in daily story read-aloud sessions using the selection of books provided by IEI and TAF. Each session will be followed by supporting mixed media activities.
Volunteers will attend daily team meetings after activities, to consolidate the days activities and prepare for the next day.
Volunteers will experience collaborative work & living environment at the IEI location residence with other volunteers from across Pakistan.
Volunteers will experience cultural exchange living and working in the community. All volunteers are expected to be sensitive to community norms.
