Maths Camp 2014

Our 7th Maths Camp will take place after the end of school term on Monday 11th to Friday 15th August at Kongowea Primary School, Mombasa.

If you're looking for a trip with a difference or just want to give something back - then this is for you!

Our volunteers will be teaching Maths, Physics and Chemistry at Kongowea School in Mombasa - but don't worry we'll provide the teaching material!

How Maths Camp has progressed over the last few years:
2008 - our very first Maths Camp attracted 80 students.
2009 - numbers increased to 120 students.
2010 - saw the expansion of Maths Camp to include Chemistry and Physics. Student numbers also swelled to over 300.
2011 - Maths and Physics were offered this year to over 350 students.
2012 - back to basics! The main focus for our 450+ students was Maths, whilst some also brushed up on Physics.
2013 - bigger than ever! A full team of tutors taught Maths, Physics and Chemistry to our eager students.

"My experience of teaching during the SAAS Maths Camp was extremely rewarding and memorable. The students were so attentive and eager to learn and asked plenty of questions. The numbers in the class were increasing each day and everyone was welcoming and fitted the extra students into the room. I will never forget the importance of the red pen for correcting the work done during class! I learnt how important it is to give feedback and praise when teaching." - Maria

"Teaching during Maths Camp with SAAS was a fulfilling and eye-opening experience. The students were extremely hard-working and deeply appreciative of our team's efforts. The enthusiasm of the students made teaching a rewarding job. I look forward to this year's camp, where I'll meet a new gang who'll keep me on my toes with intelligent questions and an unquenchable desire to learn!" - Ursula

Unlike other worthy charities, we do not ask our volunteers to donate anything except their own time and to show committment to our cause by being respectful and responsible whilst in Kenya.

If you are interested in volunteering or simply want to know more about what's involved please contact us at: gina@saas.ie

Finally thank you all for your continued support - our work wouldn't be possible without you.
