About

African Court on Human and People’s Rights This continental court was established in 1998 by African countries to ensure protection of human and people’s rights. The protocol came into force in 2004 and to date 27 states have ratified the protocol. The court is composed of eleven judges and has its seat in Arusha. Volunteers and interns can gain practical working experience and develop skills in areas of relevance to their careers. They have to be registered in or have graduated from a recognized academic institution. Pippi House

Pippi House is a safe house for girls who are homeless, from poor families, orphans, commercial sex workers, were forced into marriage and abused. The foundation is providing accommodation, food and education for around 20 girls, some of them with their babies. By educating the girls, they educate the nation of the future, because the girls will teach their own children again. The house owns a small garden and chicken to provide additional food and a shop where the girls sell small good and learn how to take responsibility. Pippi House is looking for volunteers who can teach English, Arts and Mathematics, plan fun and socially beneficial activities, help cooking and teach basic computer skills and health education. They should be sensitive and patient as some of the girls have endured horrific circumstances in their lives.
