If you think you don't possess the skills to teach, but would like to contribute to the field of education, volunteer with Atma. They work closely with other NGOs to help in capacity-building, training and implementation. If you volunteer with them, you can design projects, help design curriculum and make videos or brochures to encourage the spread of education.
