Volunteers are contracted to work at their host institutions for 20-25 hours per week, of which two-thirds are teaching hours and one third dedicated to lesson preparation and interacting with students and colleagues outside the classroom.
SVP gives you a wonderful chance to help ordinary local people whilst working in a friendly and safe location and learning about Sudan’s sophisticated and unique culture.
Most young Sudanese have received over 8 years of English language training in primary and secondary school, but have never heard a native English speaker and have had few or no opportunities to develop the key skills needed for oral communication. Our volunteers promote communication in English amongst their students and to help them to improve their spoken language.
Contrary to the common perception of Sudan as unsafe, SVP volunteers are welcomed and standards of personal security in Khartoum and in northern and eastern Sudan are high. Although parts of the country continue to be afflicted by violence, non-Sudanese are not permitted to go there, so the danger for our volunteers is non-existent in that regard. We can put you in contact with current or recent volunteers so that you can satisfy yourself and your family on this and any other points that may concern you.
