The Orphans Encounters (T.O.E.S)!                        
The amazing Orphanage experience!

TOES KIDS Project, Work with children to help get this exciting project off the ground.  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. Free time activities include going for adventures and taking short trips around the city

Accommodation is comfortable basic with running water, electricity and composite toilets, you share room with others. Local project staff are available all year round to provide support and advice.

You could also be helping with meal times, playing with the children, reading bedtime stories, creating activities,  The project is on site during holidays as kids are within the orphanage but during school days,  we want to take your energy and ideas to 10min walk school where kids are schooling in the area no travelling is needed to volunteer each day.

This makes it perfect for a no-hassle project where you will quickly feel you are 'at home'. Because there is so much to do, the local team recommend stays of 2 to 4 weeks to be able to fit in the children and the additional excursions and exploration of the local area.
