In Zanzibar, the support that volunteers provide for childcare is highly appreciated.
Working as a volunteer in childcare means being committed to the well-being of the children in the community. The role of the volunteers is to assist the staff at the center (whether it’s a school or daycare) in better attending to the needs of the children.
Volunteers will create dynamics and games to entertain the children; to teach them sports, values, activities, etc.
This project takes place in a daycare center, which accommodates 60 children aged between 5 and 6 years old, divided into three classes. Most of these children have parents who are unable to take care of them for a few hours a day because they are working. Additionally, families tend to be very large.
We work in various childcare centers and schools in Zanzibar. Some can be reached on foot, but for others, local transportation will be necessary. The project that the volunteer attends will be chosen by the Cooperating Volunteers team based on the inherent needs at the time. The cost of transportation to the projects is not included in the cost and will be covered by the volunteer.
Volunteers will share good moments with all the children from Monday to Friday!
