I am going to africa in the summer to volunteer with african orphans in an orphanage. As a volunteer, I will work alongside the existing staff to care for the children in the orphanage. The work involves feeding, dressing and keeping the children active within the homes. I will also be assisting local staff and caretakers in daily work to help them run the orphanage in a better way.I will also be teaching the kids and helping in improving their knowledge and understanding by teaching them in a play way method.
Volunteer tasks duties depend on the orphanage placement they work in as well as the skills of the individual volunteers.
Volunteers get to experience the local culture and the hospitality of the people of the Ghana, for which it is renowned all over the world. You can carry different volunteer supplies with you which will be helpful for the orphanage where you will be volunteering.
I will also be volunteering in the Maliti project which helps to educate young girls.
Maltiti is a small project whose mission is to help young disadvantaged females living in urban villages around Tamale. The center for girls aged 7 – 18 providing them with a FREE introduction to formal learning and then enrolment into either state education or employment. These are opportunities the girls would otherwise not have, and from this first step they go on to become financially independent, thus able to make informed decisions about their future.
