Volunteer in Tanzania Orphanage Program
There are many orphans and street children in Arusha, Dar es Salaam, Moshi and other cities. Local organizations protect the children by offering Children’s homes.
The organizations running orphanage programs are short of resources and manpower. Therefore, the help of international volunteers is greatly needed and appreciated.
As a volunteer in the orphanage program, you will be involved in teaching English and other subjects as well as helping them with their homework. You will also help the orphans to understand the importance of hygiene, sanitation and good manners.
Additional activities include help in organizing creative activities like games, painting, drawing, and maintaining the compound and orphanage buildings.
