Beginning the 1st of November 2019, Jillian and Astrid will volunteer on the International Volunteer HQ (IVHQ) Childcare project in Tanzania for 2.5 weeks. Due to the high incidence of poverty and illness in Tanzania, childcare centers can host 50-300 children at any one time and there is always a high demand for more volunteer assistance. Volunteers who participate on the Childcare project help with general work and daily chores. This work ranges from cooking and cleaning to farm work, assisting with feeding programs, caring for children and babies, organizing activities during play time, and teaching the children basic English and Math.
Volunteers are encouraged to bring along books, pencils, basic first aid supplies and musical instruments to help entertain the children and assist with activities. Jillian and Astrid hope to raise $500 to purchase supplies in Tanzania to support the local economy. All donations are greatly appreciated!
Please feel free to reach out to them if you have any questions or want to learn more.
