Teachers in Norwich are being encouraged to try something different over the summer holidays and use their skills to help underprivileged children abroad.
GapGuru is running the Travelling to Teach programme for the third year in a row with space for 30 teachers from across the country to work in India, Nepal and Tanzania for three weeks.
Arvind Malhotra, managing director, said: 'We are specifically looking for volunteers in Norfolk with dedication and talent who can use their skills working with schools providing education in some of the poorest parts of these countries.'
The trip costs �750, inclusive of a pre-arranged school placement, transfers, accommodation and meals. Flights and insurance are not included.
