Volunteer at a local orphanage on the outskirts of Arusha. We work with two orphanages, each having 15-25 children, mainly 4yr-15yrs old. The orphanages are run by a loving dedicated couple who opened their hearts to the vulnerable kids and orphans. They provide shelter, food, love and education to orphans, abandoned and street children of surrounding community.
Volunteer tasks: As a volunteer, you will primarily assist with the daily care of the kids; including preparing meals, bathing and brushing teeth. You can play games, arrange activities, create arts & crafts projects and share your time and caring with these wonderful children. Prior experience not necessary, volunteers should have a lot of patience, an open mind and a sense of adventure. We do recommend you learn a few words and phrases of Swahili, which will be very helpful with the children.
