Working With Children in Senegal
The orphanages, where volunteers are placed in Senegal, house children aged 0-12 years. Some have been orphaned as a result of HIV/AIDS, while others have been taken off the streets or were abandoned at birth. By supporting the overstretched orphanage staff, volunteers in Senegal provide much needed assistance. Among the orphans are many who suffer disabilities; many will have endured suffering from an early age. The volunteer’s contribution can help bring a brighter future for these children.
