Support the educational and social programs for kids in Tlokweng SOS Children's village
February 11 - February 22, 2013 & December 2 - December 13, 2013
Tlokweng SOS Children's village is located about 10km south east of the centre of Gaborone, the capital city of the Republic of Botswana. There is also a SOS centre based in Francistown-the second mining city of Botswana which is 450 km North from the capital city of Gaborone. SOS Centre is a home to close to 300 kids affected by different social ills. These include being homeless after being dumped by their mothers mainly immediately after birth and chased away from home due to in fights in some households. Some of the kids fell to lack of guardianship due to imprisonment of mothers, very poor households living on under a dollar daily. The kids at the SOS centre stay in some family like format headed by mothers volunteering at the centre. The family models are done so as to give the kids an opportunity to grow in a family set up like other people. The kids are taught during the day depending on their standards of learning. The centre mainly offers pre- school/kindergarten and primary schooling for free.
The volunteers will assist in the daily education of the kids, gardening, sports coaching & mentoring and general counseling of the kids. Moreover, volunteers can assist the centre on some renovation work that arises and maintain kids` library. Spare time is usually meant for interaction with kids on their music practice sessions. Volunteers can share and exchange different cultural forms during the project.
An orientation is scheduled for the day before the project starts.
