The orphanage we work with is home to 50 children between the ages of 2 and 9. The children are split into two groups. The baby class has approximately 40 under-4s and the kindergarten usually has 10 pupils. The two-to-four year olds are taught the basics of identifying letters and numbers. Those aged 4 to 9, meanwhile, are being prepared for elementary school and are taught to read, write and do simple mathematics. All pupils are taught English.
The program, in its role as the children’s legal guardian, also takes care of their medical needs, such as conducting tests for HIV, and treating children for flu, malaria, TB and other conditions. Volunteers in Tanzania interested in working with children are urgently needed at the orphanage. No prior experience is necessary.
Another dimension to this volunteer work in Tanzania is to find within the community, prospective sponsors to finance individual orphans’ elementary school education. Volunteers in Tanzania can also help with sponsoring Children. With the help of our sponsors, 10 students have graduated from the orphanage and gone on to elementary schools since 2008. For these youngsters, provided they work hard, their future looks bright.
