Short Term Teams & Volunteers
We like to match your gifts and abilities to the school's needs. Here are some of the many options...
We can use anyone who is a born-again believer in Jesus Christ, is 18 or over, and is fluent in English.
Teams usually stay 1-2 weeks. They stay in a nearby hotel with airconditioning and a breakfast buffet, eat lunch here with us, and then order off the menu at the hotel for dinner. Short term volunteers stay up to 1 month, and usually stay on the Emmanuel Church compound right next to Discovery School. They have a room (cooled by a fan) with an attached bath and kitchenette. We set them up with breakfast foods, and they eat lunch and dinner with other staff members living nearby.
