Description:

Orphanage support program in Norton, Mashonaland West Province, 1 to 12 months.

Volunteers will work in an orphanage in the town of Norton in Mashonaland West Province. The orphanage caters for children coming from very humble and disadvantaged backgrounds. The center provides accommodation, meals, clothing and school tuition for the kids. The center struggles to take care of the ever-increasing number of children in need, hence the dire need of resource mobilization volunteers.

The Resource Mobilization volunteer will contribute to the work of the orphanage through research, documentation and resource mobilization. The ideal candidate will be specifically involved in identifying and responding to opportunities for funding. Volunteers will also be involved in capacity building activities especially for the outgoing children. They will learn from other staff members to perform duties.

Benefits:

Participation in an international project can valuable – and often essential – to your studies or professional realization. Many of our volunteers are professionals in training or researchers looking to build their skill set. Current and future social workers, teachers, tutors, team leaders can benefit from one of our many projects in orphanages, social centers, and other people-oriented settings. Nurses and doctors frequently participate in our projects in medical centers, hospitals, or special needs facilities. Students take advantage of our environmental sustainability, biology, restoration, or archeology projects. The list is hardly exhaustive. A well-picked volunteer experience can inspire you, motivate your professional aspirations, give you hands-on experience, and build you up in ways impossible at a lecture or in the office.
After successful participation CADIP issues a certificate for the completed volunteer hours.
