Lome, Togo

NGO | Kailend

Kailend is partnered with orphanages who accept vulnerable, abandoned and orphaned children. Kailend's gives these orphanages extra support.

Kailend is partnered with orphanages who accept vulnerable, abandoned and orphaned children. Kailend's aim is to give these orphanages extra support, through fundraising and providing them with volunteer manpower.

Kailend’s care volunteers are compassionate energized individuals who help the kids to learn life skills that parents would normally teach. They provide support in the day-to-day running of an orphanage - making sure children are fed, washed and dressed, and paying them personal attention. Additionally, they organize activities such as art and crafts, music and dance, sports and games. Many volunteers also help to educate the children in personal hygiene and manners. The impact this has on their early development is profoundly visible.

We work with 2 orphanages, one within the city and another 1.5 hours  taxi drive away. (In the countryside.)

Volunteers on our orphanage projects work as part of a team.
