SVN is looking for a bank of volunteers for regular mentoring of teachers online. A pilot project is up and running with a school in the Philippines and there is another school that is interested. It is hoped that other schools will ask for this help, so we want to be ready with volunteers. Contact SVN’s Projects Manager for further information about what is involved via email.
BANGLADESH Milestone College
John Perkins is the Team Leader for this project and has been able to develop the ideas for the project over the last few months. A team of six is needed to cover the work as Milestone College is a very large school. The project will focus on teachers for 9-12 year olds. The teachers will receive training out of school time and for that reason the project is due to take place late in the year.
The training will be in workshops and role play as the students will be on holiday. We have been asked for help with teaching methods, class management, lesson planning etc. Also to help the teachers with their English by working alongside them. The main opportunity is in their primary section ages 9-12, but also potentially working with teachers of younger age groups.
SVN has done projects at the school in the past and the volunteers were very well provided for.
It would be so good if we could deliver this project. Please consider prayerfully whether you could be part of the team. As mentioned before the timescale may have to be altered should there still be travel restriction or other problems.
Please contact us if you need further information or if you are ready to volunteer.
Jane Caine is in discussion with her contact in the Philippines where a successful project has already been delivered in the southern part of the country. A team of four to five people will be needed to carry out a similar project in the north of the country and in Manila. Please contact Jane us for more information.

A team of six went to Rwanda last year and another project is being planned. You may have seen the report on our website. This is very worthwhile work and we very much hope that another project can take place. For more information please contact us but also please keep Jane informed.
All the above projects are covered by the SVN Bursary Fund.
Meeting the Cost
When God calls us to step out in faith in His service, He will always provide the resources.
If you feel God could be calling you to respond to an overseas opportunity, but are concerned about raising the total cost yourself, please let us know.
SVN has a Bursary Fund which may be able to help.
