Suas Education Development
Requirements:No previous experience required just a passion to drive change
Suas works with partner NGOs in India and partner schools in Zambia. These partnerships have been built over many years and we work to support them in their work in tackling educational disadvantage. Our partners are the experts in the challenges faced by their communities and Suas volunteers work in service to them on placement from June-August each year. As a Suas volunteer, you will have the opportunity to fully immerse yourself into the local community and experience reciprocal learning and cooperation.
A central pillar of the Suas Volunteer Programme is Global Perspectives. This is the global citizenship element of the programme that aims to educate volunteers about the issues at play that effect us at a local and global level. It informs and empowers volunteers to take action so that the volunteer experience acts as a catalyst for social change and has an influence long after the eight week placement is over. Topics covered are linked to the UN Sustainable Development Goals and include education, climate action, gender equality, health, decent work and living conditions and more
*Suas has been certified by the EU Aid Volunteers Initiative as having proven European standards in volunteer management.
