Description

Acknowledging the huge need for supporting the children and youth of the Victoria Falls area, a Child Centre was developed in 2012 specifically to offer this support and empower those in need. The Centre is run by our program partner, a non-governmental, non-profit organization which works to target those in greatest need and offer programs and activities to encourage greater educational opportunities, self-development, confidence and skills. The Centre acts as a recreational hub for children and youth to spend time in positive activity and away from anti-social behavior which is a risk for those marginalized in society and with a lack entertainment and employment opportunities. With the ongoing success of the project, an additional center is currently under construction in Sizinda, a rural community 17kms outside of Victoria Falls. The credibility of the program is highlighted by the amazing support from international organizations, with the construction of the center funded through the Elisabeth Foundation and the Roger Federer Foundation. Volunteers are now essential to help run the work of the program in both centers and help these local youths into brighter futures.

Love Volunteers welcomes all those 18 years and over who wish to assist in the development of Zimbabwe's next generation. While this highly rewarding project does not require participants to have a background in the field of childcare, as there are many ways you can assist, volunteers with suitable education, qualifications or experience are highly sought after. Regardless, a volunteer’s individual role can often be tailored to suit their particular skills and interests. Ideally, volunteers on this project will have at least a basic knowledge of the local language in order to communicate effectively with staff and students, though this is not a pre-requisite. All applicants must of course display a genuine willingness to help, show drive and initiative, and bring a positive 'can-do' attitude. If this sounds like you, we want you on the team!


Additionally, volunteers applying to join this program will be required to supply to following documentation:

  • Emergency contact
  • Police check
