Work

Children at the orphanage are hungry for love, care, educational assistance and even just a smile and friendship. Volunteers are essential in providing these simple but usually undermined gestures. These are important for cognitive stimulation, emotional or confidence building which are important to develop inner drive and boosting their self-esteem. This opportunity will present volunteers a chance to impact both the children and themselves. It will give volunteers a gratifying blend of fresh, thrilling, and amazing experiences. The experience of each volunteer is different depending on the level of their innovation and inner drive. Volunteers therefore are expected to have passion for children and the drive to engage children actively to increase the chances of their experiences being worthy while. Daily volunteer activities include playing with the children using those kinds of games that we take lightly when we are back home and think they are old fashioned, assist with school homework and generally ensuring that children are engaged at all times. Children usually wish to understand the volunteer, where they are from, what music they like, sporting activities, and including what sorts of social experiences they prefer engaging in. It is those kinds of things we take for granted that they want to hear. There is an opportunity for endless intellectual capacity to what volunteers could do. Whatever it is that you can think of, just know that your initiatives have an astounding positive effect on the children something that they will not forget.

Being a part of the orphanage triggers an extensive interest in volunteers and is an opportunity to discover one’s hidden or unknown skills, patience, love, talents and even interests something which usually the volunteer themselves never recognized. It is a chance to discover the inner person. Our volunteers are given an opportunity to be as innovative as much as they could as they will simply have this time.

Work

Located in the World Heritage Site – Victoria Falls, volunteers have the opportunity to engage with the most affected children and take them through a healing and joyful moment through play and education. This is an amazing volunteering opportunity for those who need no other skills but an open heart and the willingness to work on programs that can make vulnerable children’s lives better. The program has a positive impact on the targeted children and youth. They face hardships through stigma and discrimination in the community and among their peers who often do not understand the disease yet. Volunteers are there to provide this emotional support and education to the rest of the young and children who are at risk of infection. Volunteers do this through school-based HIV/AIDS clubs targeting adolescent youth. Furthermore, volunteers would occasionally use sporting activities especially soccer one of the largest sports in Africa to educate young people on HIV.

Work

The project is based in Victoria Falls at our offices which also act as a recreational hub for children and youth who lack basic community and educational services. It provides children and youth an opportunity not only to interact but access basic services to promote their social wellbeing. The idea of the centre is to keep children and youth out of risk places which they might otherwise find themselves in as a result of a lack of opportunities in safer places. Volunteers on this program facilitate extra-curricular activities for children and youth through a child center which supports those who need it most. The idea of the centre is to provide recreational services to children and youth who do not have access to such services. The center also addresses issues of child abuse among other challenges as it is a safe home to deliberate and receive support from. Volunteers work together with representatives of the Victoria Falls Child Protection Committee and our staff to identify and resolve all child protection related issues. From this same centre, volunteers have an opportunity to engage in indoor and outdoor play games with children who occasionally visit the centre for play. It is basically an opportunity for international volunteers to appreciate initiatives around safeguarding the rights of children and their protection

It then translates into both individual and collective actions in many human activity fields that have an impact on nature, such as: Agriculture; Forests exploitation; Farming; Hunting and fishing; Water and waste management etc. In each of these fields, conservation programs strive to limit the negative impacts on nature or to correct them.
