Opportunity Description:

Uganda has an extremely high number of children living in poverty and many of these children have lost one or both of their parents as a result of the HIV/AIDS epidemic. The purpose of the Childcare project is to provide support to under resourced centers that are providing care to children within poor communities. If you’re someone who loves working with children and is happy to provide support wherever your assistance is most needed, you will be well suited to this project. You can choose between Child Care, teaching, Special Needs Care etc As a volunteer on this project, you will work within in day care centers, nursery schools, children’s homes and kindergartens to assist local staff in the day-to-day running of these centers and ensuring they operate effectively. Activities vary across the different centers with typical tasks including Bathing, feeding changing of diapers for babies, educational activities and basic teaching of English, Math, Health/Hygiene, Reading and Writing. Other activities include play therapy and games, cleaning, reading stories, dancing, singing, arts and crafts, as well as assisting with feeding and daily chores. As you will be volunteering alongside our local placement staff, you do not need to have previous childcare experience to participate on this project but high energy levels and a willingness to help out wherever your help is most needed is a must. The length of stay on the program runs from 1 week to 36 Weeks and the costs of the program depend on how long you intend to stay with us but you can see all that from our website http://www.volunteerstouganda.com/.
