Teachers of the Nations
Teachers of the Nations is a ministry of Youth With A Mission Worcester and was founded in 2012. The goal of the ministry is to enable and empower young girls spiritually, intellectually and emotionally for success in life. For instance, the girls have benefited from teaching on God’s view of their sexuality and womanhood presented by a female Christian doctor.
The ministry also helps the girls in practical ways such as providing clothes and shoes as well as school supplies to the girls and their family members. Their goal is to improve the community as well. For this reason, they are involved in planting gardens, cleaning the school grounds in Avian Park, and providing needed tutorials.
Teachers of the Nations is looking for volunteers who are willing to come and serve in Worcester, South Africa for a minimum of one academic term which generally lasts three months. Our programs include weekly activities as well as seasonal events such as camps.
