Description:

The main goal of this project is to support, nurture and improve the lives of orphans and children that have been subjected to poverty and abuse by providing them with food, shelter and education.
The staff at the junior school provides physical and emotional support, spiritual nurturing and lots of tender loving care. We encourage and give hope to each and every child. With the right help and committed support we help these children turn their lives around. We believe that every child deserves the best start in life and a chance to fulfill their potential and we therefore support them, stand up for them and bring out the best in each and every child.
The project aims to serve the poor and vulnerable by facilitating access to basic health, social and economic needs through capacity building, advocacy and skill development as a means to reduce poverty, discrimination, encourage talent and improve the quality of their lives.

Volunteer duties:
• Taking care of the children as well as playing with them
• Feeding the children
• Ensuring the surroundings are clean
• Helping the children with homework
• Fundraising activities

Language: English

Duration of the project: 1 to 12 months

Qualifications:

Participants should have a positive attitude, be ready to adopt and enjoy simple living conditions, be flexible and patient. No particular expertise or skills required. However, specialized skills and expertise in areas such as early childhood education, teaching Math, Science, tutoring, will be used accordingly. Volunteers are expected to love kids and be motivated to spend time with them.


Training:

Arrival and orientation: There will be a 3-day orientation seminar for new volunteers including Nairobi city introduction. The orientation starts on the first Monday of every month. It is recommended that volunteers arrive at least one day before the orientation starts.


Benefits:

Participating in an international short term volunteer project (so called Workcamp) can be an exciting prospect. It is an interesting and meaningful way to travel with purpose and spend 2-3 weeks in a foreign environment. Working and living together with other volunteers from around the world provides an excellent opportunity to make many new friends, learn about unknown places and culture, gain new skills and experience. Your time, energy, and enthusiasm can make a difference in areas where help is really needed.
After successful participation CADIP issues a certificate for the completed volunteer hours.
