Volunteer at a Children’s Home near Livingstone, Zambia.   The Home provides residential care for orphans and vulnerable children who have no family to look after them.  Most of them have been orphaned as a result of the AIDS pandemic, which affects about 30% of adults in Livingstone.

Most of the children are school age, between 5 to 10 years old.  The only condition for admission is need of care.   Volunteers help the full time ‘caretaker/mothers’ to look after the children.  Volunteer will support the Home’s effort to provide a caring/homey atmosphere, encouraging the children to take part in chores and helping with homework and remedial teaching.

Volunteers are encouraged to help with English lessons, provide health talks, assist with meals time, and the daily chores and upkeep of the Home itself.  Monday to Friday hours, weekends are free.

This is a great opportunity to support a community program, be immersed with a local host family
And visit a wonderful site of Victoria Falls on your free weekend.
