This team lives in the historic center and the cultural heart of the country. It is a busy city with people out everywhere all the time. There are many modern amenities as well as very ancient ways of life. The city is very culturally rich and revered amongst the rest of the country.
Over 99.9% of the population is Muslim, making this city a strategic place for followers of Christ to move into and live among this beautiful community. Teaching English opens a relevant and natural door for relationships, because the academic language recently changed from French to English, creating a strong need to have teachers with native-like fluency.
Our organization has been invited by the government to teach in their schools, which is a great long-term opportunity to live and serve in the Middle East. Studying language and culture is a key piece for doing this effectively. This two-year opportunity is created to help you get a full experience of the country, develop quality relationships with locals, and be a part of an experienced team. This drastically increases the likelihood of longer-term placement, even without the requisite academic credentials, as an in-country, face-to-face interview has a much higher chance of yielding a job for the future. This placement is a good entry position for those who are considering serving long-term in the future.
