UGANDA CHILDCARE VOLUNTEERING PROJECT

As a volunteer you will work alongside local teams that provide at-risk children and abandoned babies a safe environment in which they are nurtured and they participate in a number of extra-curricular activities.

The way a child is brought up determines the future of the child. Children are abandoned by their mothers immediately after leaving the labor ward. Do they even know how long it will take before someone gets to find that baby and look after her/him?

The babies are thrown in pit latrines and some of these babies remain alive until they are pulled out of there. For so many years, Uganda has battled with this, and yet even today, children are abandoned on streets, hospital wards, outside private resident’s gates, and even in the bush.

Ssamba Foundation's Uganda childcare volunteering project offer needy kids the love and parental care in our children homes. Most of the children are traumatized by the incidences that occurred and it takes them time to adjust and feel comfortable among new people.

This mostly happens to children in the age bracket of 3-7. As for the infants of 2 years and below, these do not recall what happened to them and so they live and grow up knowing that this is their home and family.

These children need love, care, attention, observation and monitoring, and emotional support. The organization might have taken in the children, but they also require assistance from volunteers.

Come and volunteer, spend time with the children. Show them that motherly love and give them support. Show them the bright light at the end of the tunnel. Give them hope for a better tomorrow. These children will be parents tomorrow, guide them on how to be responsible and change their negative thinking about humanity. They will be great leaders tomorrow.

This Uganda childcare volunteering project is designed to provide kids from 3 to 10 years old with creative outlets and opportunities to make constructive use of their time and also to provide nurturing environment for 0-2yr olds. Volunteers help children to practice reading, writing, arithmetic, and English while making time for various games and recreational activities.

As a volunteer you will work alongside local teams that provide at-risk children and abandoned babies a safe environment in which they are nurtured and they participate in a number of extra-curricular activities.
