STAESA's orphanage programme provides a great opportunity to work very closely with children who have lost their parents or experienced neglect or abuse. The big smiles and love of these children towards anyone who is willing to help them in any way leaves lots of memories in the minds of all volunteers, making it hard to part from them at the end of the programme. The volunteers and interns teach basic and conversational English or French, depending on the country. Activities include games, drawing, organising sightseeing days with the children, feeding, washing the children and other creative activities.
Resources are really in short supply in many countries, but it’s amazing to see the children always happy and getting involved in anything fun!
Activities include the following:
While not required, volunteers are encouraged to raise more funds for the orphanage at home before coming. The funds will be used to keep the orphanage up and running and to get more toys and school supplies for the orphans. Volunteers are welcome to bring children books, toys, old shoes, t-shirts, soccer balls and old computers for the orphanage.
