Orphan Care Support
Description: Providing support and care to orphans and improving their emotional situations and their level of acceptance with daily routines at an orphanage home called Kingdom Life Children’s Center. A good-hearted woman resident in Atteridgeville realizing the urgent need for caring for the children in the area with no other place to go has established this home. Initially time and effort was invested in establishing, registering and organizing the affairs of the Home. The main focus currently is to create better opportunities for the children to develop in a stable and caring environment, and to improve their life skills. Forty-four children aged between six and nineteen reside at the Home on a full time basis.
Type of Work: The children of the Kingdom Life Children’s Centre have an abundance of talent. The children receive classes in playing the violin; they are great chorists and are excellent gumboot dancers. Music is a great way of teaching the children about life, and also provides them some escape from their own experiences. Kingdom Life provides a caring home environment for children that are at their most vulnerable. We will request volunteers to work in the morning preparing for the children going to school and later in the afternoon to assist in homework especially those that will be in Primary schooling
We will work with the Social Workers in organising an outing for one weekend to a venue that the children have never visited.
Accommodation: Accommodation will be in rooms at the project center. Participants will be required to bring their own sleeping bags. The accommodation has a simple bathroom with shower and there is running water. The accommodation and work place have flushing toilets and do have electricity but should expect normal power cuts
Language: The community has multi-cultural people and English is mostly spoken with local languages such as Sotho, Zulu, and Tshwana to name a few.
Requirements: Qualification of participants: - Open minded, ready to interact with other people of different cultural background - Positive attitude - Willing to share his/her experiences - Flexible to live/stay in simple living conditions - Flexible to eat local food - Ready to do wake up as early as 5:30am and be able to assist in homework after 3:00pm to 4:30pm
Notes: The work camp participation fee is strictly Euro 200 and this covers simple accommodation, food and project expenses during the camp. Please note that this does not include travel expenses to and from the camp, so participants are asked to reserve a small amount of money for transport to the camp and vice-verse.
