Opportunities to Volunteer in Children Home/Orphanage in Kenya and Tanzania
Once placed here, a volunteer can decide to work in either of the departments – Cook for the children, feed them, teach them, help with laundry, mop the floor, give those who are sick their medication and soothe them to sleep one at a time. At present, most of the centers are short of staff and most of the above chores are taken care of by a slim staff collectively with the children. The children are from different backgrounds hence, have different emotional problems in addition to societal effects that range from grinding poverty to HIV/AIDS. Others are from broken homes, where they were physically abused. This category of children together with those affected by HIV need special care, child psychiatric services and above all, friends whom they can trust and open up to – a motherly, fatherly, brotherly or a sisterly figure – a shoulder to lean on, sow hope and reap something in life. There are also those who have never known a mum or a dad – this are children who were either found abandoned by the road side or whose parents are long dead from HIV/AIDS. Therefore other than material insufficiencies, our children’s home are mix of emotions that needs every one of us.
This program would best suit any volunteer with a humane heart. Someone willing to reach out and inspire hope where there might be none, someone with a niche to leave the world a better place that he/she found it. This program would also suit groups of two to twenty volunteers with a common goal like fund raising to buy such home kitchen equipments or buy them enough food to take them through a month, six months or a year. Such groups of volunteers could initiate projects like painting the home, buying more beddings, toys, books, medicine, expand the home building wise to accommodate more children comfortably.
The program is also a superb training opportunity for those volunteers aspiring to take up community-based jobs in developing countries.
A volunteer’s presence alone at the home is in its self an enormous blessing . It would also be perfect for those looking for a set comprising of a school and a children’s home as a single package.
A carefully selected host family will provide for food and accommodation.
This volunteer placement is suitable for people from all walks and strips of life – with an interest in fellow human beings’ plights and sufferings. For young people, they should be able to bare hash realities of life with regard to the levels of suffering and situations the children live under.
