What’s it really like to volunteer in Ethiopia?

Posted by Eteach Blogger on Sep 4, 2012 in Teaching Abroad

VSO is the world’s leading independent international development organisation that works through volunteers to fight poverty in developing countries. In the first of a series of case studies in which we catch up with VSO volunteers, we learn about Patricia Gilhooley’s year in Western Ethiopia working as a continuous professional development (CPD) adviser.

Inspiring creativity in the classroom

More than half of the world’s out-of-school children live in just 15 countries, and nearly three million of them are in Ethiopia.

Tackling traditional ‘chalk and talk’ methods of teaching is a major challenge. VSO volunteer Patricia Gilhooley spent her year encouraging the use of active learning methods in several primary schools and a teacher training college.

VSO volunteers like Patricia work through the Ministry of Education and at a senior level in teacher training colleges across Ethiopia to help engage students to think critically and creatively.

Here she tells us about her experiences. Read more…
