Children are getting free education & care in a kindgarden. Support them with your time & love.This project is part of an NGO which was founded by a former street child.
“New Hope for Street Youth of Arusha” was founded by the Tanzanian Ayubu Kazana in 2013. Ayubu's parents died when we was very young and he was raised without them. He got his primary education in Kenya and only went to secondary school in Tanzania. Currently he is working as a medical representative and wants to support children and youth in need. The German association "Hilfe für Afrika Hilden e.V." ("Help for Africa") under Engelbert Kremers supported the young adults with health insurance, renting land and an office and donated sewing machines.
Ayubu is also supervising two other projects within the NGO. "New Hope For Disadvantaged Young Men" and "New Hope For Disadvantaged Young Women" can be found on Volunteer World as well.
New Hope Kindergarten
In this kindergarten 25 children between the age of three to six years are being supervised. The children are coming from the nearby poor neighborhood. Only half of the parents can afford to pay the little contribution they are asked for in order to help the kindergarten running and to provide basic care. The children are being taught in the subjects English, reading, writing and mathematics.
It is possible to shift between the different projects within the NGO. In general setting up a website and doing fundraising can be an essential part of your work. In particular you will support the teacher in their every day routine like teaching and taking care of the children. You can conduct different activities according to your skills and interest and help to let the kindergarten grow.
You don't need any previous knowledge but it could be helpful if you have a background or interest in child care, teaching and/or fundraising.
A typical day depends on the project you are working in as well as your skills and interest.
At around 8:00 am you will arrive at the kindergarten. You will support the teachers or teach yourself depending on your skills and interest. Also depending on what you planned to day will go on. You can do handicraft, colouring or what ever comes in to your mind with the children. You will work until around 12 pm. If interested you can then in the afternoon create a website for “New Hope”, do fundraising, etc.
