Children’s Foundation Supporter

Venance the founder of the foundation is multiple disabilitied, his aim is to give education to all children, even if the parents can't afford.

Education depends on the parents income. If parents are poor, there is basically no chance for the children to get a good education and a better life than their parents.

The Venance Care Foundation want to challenge this. Currently more then 30 children from the age one to five years are being taken care of. The children are coming from the neighborhood, which mainly consists of poor families, meaning that only very few parents can afford the little money for the school fees, which should help to cover the rent and facilities of the classroom, the two teachers’ salaries and the morning snack.

In the kindergarten you will support the teacher Angela in their daily activities, teaching the children mathematics, English, writing and reading. Also you can do handi craft with the children and playing games. In the afternoon you will be working on the website as well as doing fundraising or marketing.


Suitable for

Couples
Singles
Families
Groups

Typical day

You will start in the morning between 8:00 and 9:00 am. The children are supervised only until 11am because the Foundation has no money to offer a full lunch the children. This has to change in the future, of course! In the three hours the children are taught in reading, writing, mathematics and English. But playing is also not neglected. Afterwards up to 1 pm you will work at the website of the project together with Venance. You can become active in the marketing and fundraising area as well. Even children from low-income families should be supported by sponsorships in the future. Furthermore, the curriculum as well as teaching methods must be developed and discussed with the teacher Angela and Venance.
