Special Education in Fiji is an area that is not given a lot of focus due to our social welfare systems, therefore, we ask volunteers to especially give your time and expertise in this area.
As one Special Education Head Teacher said: “Special Ed children in Fiji are not looked upon with priority, as special children are looked at from developed countries, and therefore we need a lot of help from volunteers who understand about educating these very special children.”
It is with these words that Build A Bridge Volunteer Fiji seeks your assistance, if you are the university or college that trains teachers for Special Education OR if you are a teacher who has trained or specializes in this area OR if you have a talent in any of the areas below and have a love for working with Special Ed children then please contact us for more information.
Assistance is required mostly in the area of Life Skills, that is Physical Education, Art and Craft and Music. Of course other areas required such as teaching English, which includes reading, spelling and grammar, amongst other subjects.
Special Education volunteers will be required to volunteer for a minimum of 1 school term (a period of 2 – 3 months). If your time is just below this requirement please speak to us and we will see what we can do to cater to this.
