Work

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.

Accomodation and food

Children in Africa live in a world of unjust inequalities between the world’s rich and poor regions, in HIV prevalence, human rights, economic development and access to healthcare. Many young people in Africa and around the world are deeply passionate about tackling these challenges, but often feel unable or unsure about how to make a difference. In 2016 alone, UNICA supported 5,401 children and youth in Zimbabwe through its programmes. UNICA harnesses young people’s passion for social change and equips them with the skills, resources, and community to fight HIV/AIDS among other challenges, to promote equality now and throughout their lives. Combating global challenges into the future requires strong leadership and innovative ideas from young people. UNICA is a non-political and non-religious NGO governed by a Board of Trust, made up of highly skilled members of the development community from all over the world.

Work

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.

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

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 could 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.

Accomodation and food

Accommodation is provided in a choice or either a host family or at the Volunteer House which is located approximately 4kms from the city centre. The house provides spacious air-conditioned rooms to refresh volunteers from the heat out while they are undertaking their community work. Bedrooms are equipped with single beds accommodating at least a minimum of two and a maximum of four people per room. Volunteers should be aware that the room set up changes frequently and can expect to use bunk beds. We take great note of space and the comfort which our volunteers require after hard work out in the field. Our lounge is equipped with a spacious lounge suit and entertainment in the form of television set with a wide variety of international news and entertainment channels. Internet facilities are provided free of charge for volunteers 24hrs a day. However, it should be noted that this may be regulated or restricted in some instances depending on the daily usage but would generally be available all the time. At a host family, volunteers have the opportunity to immerse themselves into the real Zimbabwean culture and day to day life as they live in, eat and participate in host family activities. These host families are carefully selected based on a critical criterion to ensure basic comfort for our volunteers.

Location and leisure

Victoria Falls has a lot to offer for volunteers during their leisure. They can also cross the bridge to Zambia for sight seeing

The orphanage is a safe house for abused and vulnerable children in Victoria Falls. Since its inception in 2008, the orphanage has housed and saved many children who are dumped by their parents due to unwanted pregnancies and some have the most shocking stories you have ever heard. The orphanage is open to volunteers from 0900am to 1700hrs each day. It currently shelters over 71 children between the ages 1 year 4 months to 17 years of age. A reasonable number of the children are HIV/AIDS orphans who lost their parents from HIV/AIDS, some were deserted by their parents dumped in bushes, toilets among other places. The centre also acts as a drop in centre were abused children are kept in good health and safety while investigations are pending by responsible authorities

Meeting point

We will pick volunteers from the airport or Bus/Train Station

Additional comments

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. There is therefore no particular skill required to participate in this program.
