Support the educational and social programs for kids in Botswana
- Volunteer Opportunity posted by CADIP
Short-Term (few weeks/months)
The international volunteer project will take place in Children's Center in Tlokweng, located on the outskirts of Gaborone, the capital city of the Republic of Botswana.
The Children's Center is a home to close to 300 kids affected by different social ills. These include being homeless after being dumped by their mothers mainly immediately after birth and chased away from home due to in fights in some households. Some of the kids felt the lack of guardianship due to imprisonment of mothers and other kids escaped the hardships of staying in very poor households living under a dollar a day.
The kids at the Children's Center stay in some family like format headed by mothers volunteering at the centre. The family models are done so as to give the kids an opportunity to grow in a family setup. The kids are taught during the day depending on their standards of learning. The centre mainly offers pre-school/kindergarten and primary schooling for free.
The volunteers will assist in the daily education of the kids, gardening, sports coaching and mentoring and general counseling of the kids. Moreover, volunteers can assist the centre with some renovation work that arises and maintain the kids' library. Spare time is usually meant for interaction with the children on their music practice sessions. Volunteers can share and exchange different cultural forms during the project.
Orientation: An orientation for the volunteers will take place in Mochudi one day before the project starts.
Project dates: August 20 - August 31, 2018
