Orphanage & CHILDCARE
Dream Africa Care Foundation will like to personally invite you to volunteer with us in any of our over-crowded and understaffed orphanages in Ghana. Your presences can make a differences in the children's life. This project aims to provide an opportunity for needy children and orphans to live and learn under one roof until they are adopted or integrated in the community or placed with family members who can take better care of them. Due to extreme poverty, neglect and abuse, many children in Ghana are forced to leave their homes to live on the streets or forced into child labour and trafficking and mostly live under bad conditions.
Our Orphanage care project initiative has tremendously improved the lives of children in Ghana. Our aim is to give these orphanages extra support so they can provide the children with good quality food, clothing and school supplies. Through the commitment and dedication of our volunteers, we have contributed immensely to the basic education of these children who sometimes lack the quality foundation.
We offer support, care and family for the orphans and vulnerable. Care volunteers don’t need to have previous experience. The only qualities that our volunteers need to possess are compassion for fellow human beings and a desire to improve the lives of those with domestic or physical circumstances less fortunate than their own. As a care volunteer working with children in orphanages, you would be helping the kids to learn life-skills that parents would normally teach. By getting involved in the day-to-day running of an orphanage - making sure children are fed, washed and dressed, and paying them personal attention -you will be making a really positive impact on their lives.
There is always scope for any talents or interests you may have to be utilized. Art & crafts or music are always popular activities and many care placements have outside areas where sports and games can be played. Many volunteers also help to educate the children in personal hygiene and social kills .The work volunteers do can be challenging at times but the strength and resilience of the children will inspire you to persevere.
