VOLUNTEER teachers to the Marshall Islands will return after August as their contracts have been renewed for another two years.

The volunteers who are retired teachers believe they can make a difference in shaping the future of Marshall islanders.

Kitione Karawa, 60, had never stopped teaching even after he had retired at 55 as required by law.

"I took up the Marshall Islands offer because I believe I can help with education. Even after retiring, I was helping folks in my province by offering night education," he said.

"It's a bit different in the Marshall Islands. Sometimes the children are not as well-behaved like in Fiji, but it's a challenge and I like a challenge.

"For me, I would go back because I am a teacher and teaching is what I love."

Ruci Uluilakeba, 59, said the teaching experience in Fiji prepared them well.

"The standard of education in Fiji is much higher than that of Marshall Islands so I have been able to use Class Six texts and notes to help with Year Nine students over there," she said.
