Who do we need?
Watoto Wa Africa Orphanage needs people who want to make a difference. We do not require any special skills or qualifications, except for a love of children and a desire to change people’s lives. We ask that volunteers come ready for a challenge and willing to put in some hard work.
Watoto wa Africa is located in East Africa in Mwanza, Tanzania. Mwanza is the second largest town in Tanzania and is located on the shores of Lake Victoria, the largest freshwater lake in the world. Large granite outcrops perched precariously on top of each other dominate the landscape in the Mwanza region.
Volunteers at Watoto Wa Africa can help in a number of different ways depending on their skills and interests.
The main role of the volunteers will be to teach supplementary lessons for the children at the Buswelu orphanage. The ability to speak English gives children in Tanzania a head start in life, increasing their chances of continuing education and eventually finding work.
Josephat is fluent in English, but he cannot teach the children alone. Therefore he needs the help of volunteers to extend the children’s English and mathematics skills. Volunteers are asked to assist with lessons Monday to Friday in the morning and afternoon. These classes are generally only 1 to 2 hours long.
Volunteers can also teach other important skills, such as fine and gross motor skills, sports, computers, music and singing. The children are very eager to learn.
