Orphanage/Baby-home Project

The fourth Millennium Development Goal for Tanzania is to reduce child mortality. Babies are most vulnerable to malnutrition and the major causes include inadequate breastfeeding, insufficient intake of vitamins and minerals, unhealthy living environments and poor or no access to health services (NSGRP II, 2010).

 

Baby-Home Project

The baby-home project is a home and rescue centre for orphaned and abandoned babies. The home accepts all babies, even HIV-positive. Infants are taken into the baby home and are given the nutrition, care and love they need. The goal is to save children from dying of malnutrition and hopefully give them a brighter future through adoption. There are many babies and few staff members, hence volunteers are needed at all times.

Volunteers are welcomed at this project all year round and you do not need any previous experience to work at this project. As a volunteer at the baby home you work Monday to Friday from 9.00AM to 1.00PM.

Volunteer opportunities:

-Play with and love the babies

-Join and organize activities for the toddlers

-Feed and clean the babies

-Assist with medical treatments.
