Volunteer helping children of Zimbabwe who have sadly lost their families.The orphanage is home to 23 children between the ages of 3-18. 55 more children receive meals and afterschool care. With a full-time staff of only three people, the help of volunteers like yourself is very much needed.
You will help the children with their homework, clean and assist in keeping up the home, play with the kids, walk them to and from school, serve them meals, and help in fundraising efforts.
