Volunteer at a local children's home which supports, houses and feeds 30 youngsters. The children are all ages from infants to teenagers. Most of these children have lost parents to Aids, some have been abandoned, and they knew only abuse, hunger and fear. The orphanage strives to provide a better future for some of the most vulnerable children in Zambia. As a volunteer, you will primarily assist with the daily care of the kids; including bathing, feeding and clothing. You can play games, arrange activities, create arts & crafts projects and share your time and caring with these wonderful children. Training of vocational skills, like beading, or arts and crafts, or sewing is welcome. Prior experience not necessary, volunteers should have a lot of patience, an open mind and a sense of compassion.
Volunteer Zambia based in the cities of Lusaka and Livingstone, the A Broader View volunteer programs have made immense improvements in the everyday lives of the children, youth and families we work with. The greatest commitment is to make radical change in the living conditions of impoverished and incarcerated youth as well as focus on early childhood education. With ABV volunteers’ help programs such Diversion Program have expanded which we advocate to divert children in conflict with the law from incarceration to a correction center where they are provided effective rehabilitation, recreation and education.
