In this program, you help orphaned children with daily life and extra-curricular activities.
There are many orphans in Uganda. Many children have been orphaned by the HIV/AIDS epidemic or have been abandoned due to extreme poverty or other unfortunate social situations. Oftentimes children are saved from a life of young soldiers or are rescued from human trafficking circumstances. There is an immense need for people to volunteer with orphaned Ugandan children.
PEPA presently works with more than 10 orphanages in Uganda. In our projects, you help orphaned children with daily life and extra-curricular activities. You must be willing to provide love and care and brighten up the lives of the children. You’ll also need to patient and flexible. For volunteers wishing to work in our children program, you have to demonstrated that you lived before with children, it may be from your families, niece or friends. Volunteers need to be pedagogical, inventive and able to make education fun and creative to grab the children’s interest.
Volunteers working with PEPA generally show support by tutoring (mostly English) the children at the orphanage where they are home-schooled and assisting/educating them in areas of personal hygiene (i.e. brushing, flossing their teeth) and life skills. You may also help with math, science or other subjects. As a volunteer in the orphanage project, you also help with homework and encourage their academic progress. Afternoons and evenings are fun times. You will organize activities, games, sing-a-longs and dances as well as other creativity-based activities to teach the children In the orphanages where children attend a school, daytime activities for volunteers include: administrative work and helping with cleaning, cooking and gardening or teaching at the local school, you may also help teachers at the local school.
