Empowering the community, teaching teaching the needy and orphans!
Get the opportunity to live and work with over 41 children ( and growing) at Run Orphanage, With ever increasing numbers of children arriving at this small orphanage, extra hands, eyes and ideas for activities are always needed to help maintain order, fun and learning! Living on site with your fellow volunteers and with everything on hand you can truly relax and soak up the African culture and traditions from the comfort of your new home.
There is a huge need for assisting orphans and vulnerable children living in this children's home. These children are in need of love and attention. Many of them are developmentally delayed and need extra attention in order to promote their development.
Many of these children have challenges so being understanding and patient is very important in working with them. If you have collect gifts of clothes, books and school supplies you can distribute these to the children. Seeing the smiles on their faces as they open their presents can be the most rewarding feeling.
The ‘House Mothers’ work with the children long hours and are often stretched so the help you give will be the break they need and deserve. The orphans at the Children's home attend the same school "Run Academy" together with other kids in the surrounding villages in Nabweru Zone.
So if this interests you come with us and experience the various guises of the real Africa. We’ll provide a unique trip that will introduce you to the wonderful wildlife on safari but also give you the rewarding experience of volunteering at our orphanage.
