Volunteer Tanzania Orphanage Project
Volunteer Tanzania Orphanage Project sometimes referred as Children’s home project has also seen a steady increase in the number of volunteers joining this projects. Orphanage in Tanzania lacks basic requirements. they have few teachers and the living conditions for these orphans are poor. Your participation in This Volunteer Tanzania Orphanage Project will help bring back a smile form these children which were taken away after the death of their parents. Most of the Orphans lost parents due to HIV/AIDS and a few of the orphans are also affected by the disease.
Volunteers need to understand that in our Volunteer Tanzania orphanage projects orphanages are a bit different from orphanages in other parts of the world. Because of the family-oriented culture, orphans stay with extended families, others with the neighbors and others stay alone. Usually, there very few orphans who stay at the orphanage centers overnight most of them come in the morning and leave in the evening.
