In addition to the children in our care, there are also hungry mouths to feed in the communities we work in. We also accept donations such as
- Furniture and appliances for the foster homes and after care
- Stationary, toys, games and books for the after care, foster homes and Kids Club
- Clothes, bedding, towels, etc. for the foster homes
We appreciate it if donations are new or in near-new condition.
Currently we have up to four full-time international volunteers working with us for a year at a time.
As we expand, the need for more hands increases. Please contact us directly if you are considering coming to volunteer from abroad.
There is also always need for part-time or once-off local volunteers. Volunteering could take the form of helping to look after the children at the foster homes or after care, presenting special classes for them or taking them on a field trip.
If you have a special interest or skill, e.g. soccer, writing, graphic design, building, maintenance etc. please let us know! There are many ways in which you can support our organisation and serve the mission directly or indirectly.
Every thought, prayer and encouraging word is much appreciated!
