Want to do something worthwhile and fun this summer?
In July Camara will be sending 40 Volunteers out to Ethiopia, Kenya,
Uganda and Zambia to teach basic computer literacy in the computer labs
we have been setting up throughout 2006/07.
Camara take computers that are no longer required from Irish
companies, refurbishes them, installs Edubuntu and send them out to
schools and colleges in Africa.
If you, or someone you know, would be interested in being part of this
overseas teaching opportunity please complete the application form found
and return to Kirsty (kirsty at camara.ie) before 16th March 2007.
There are some basic requirements to be eligible to volunteer with Camara:
* Over 18 years old on 30th January 2007
* 50 hours in the Camara workshop
* pre-trip orientation program
* post-trip de-briefing
* fundraise €1,500 per person
Worried you don't have enough experience as a teacher or enough
knowledge on computers?
It's not a problem, your pre-trip orientation weekend and 50 hours in
the Camara workshop will give you the knowledge and confidence you need
to teach with Camara in Africa 2007.
Why not come along to one of our Open Events for new volunteers? This
will give you the chance to meet the Camara team and other volunteers
for Africa 2007.
Thursday 1st March at 7pm, Camara, 15 Castleforbes Road, Dublin
Saturday 10th March at 2pm, Camara, 15 Castleforbes Road, Dublin
