Use Your Teaching Skills To Help Afghan
Women And Girls From the Comfort of Your Home!

The Alliance for International Women’s Rights (AIWR) is seeking volunteer women ESL/EFL professionals who are willing to tutor Afghan girls long-distance, via Skype.

AIWR is a U.S. nonprofit organization devoted to supporting women’s rights efforts in developing countries, with a current focus on Afghanistan. Our efforts include increasing the English capacity of Afghan women leaders and future women so that they can better reach out to the international community for information, employment, education, funding and to share their experiences with the world. The volunteer positions do not involve any travel – the volunteers will teach Afghan women and girls from the comfort of their own homes using Skype and E-mail.

Volunteer requirements are as follows:

Must have a near-native proficiency in English with English Language Teaching certification or equivalent teaching experience.
Due to the Afghan culture and for the safety of the Afghan girls in our program, our Afghan partners require that we work with female teachers.
Volunteers need to have a reliable computer, high-speed internet, Skype software (free software is found at www.skype.com), and a headset.
The volunteers will need to be available to teach one student for two sessions a week for a minimum of three months. Each class session runs for one hour.
The classes will occur Saturday through Wednesday, at either 7:00 a.m., 2:00 or 3:15 pm (days and time are in Afghanistan’s time). The Afghan students are not available on Thursdays or Fridays.
Interested applicants should determine if they are available during these times by comparing their local time to Afghanistan time. We recommend using an on-line time zone converter, such as this one: http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converter.html.
We ask that applicants please determine their availability during the required hours before applying. We are only able to interview candidates who are available at the requested times and who can commit for a minimum of three months.

Please consider using your skills to help Afghan women and girls. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer teacher, please complete an application form, found on our website (www.aiwr.org), and submit the form and your resume or CV to Lisa Herb at lisaherb@aiwr.org. Thank you!
