Child & Orphan Care Volunteering

Click here for more information

African Impact’s child and orphan care programs work with community care facilities, pre-schools, support centres and safe houses across Africa to assist at-risk children with lessons, educational games and other fun activities.

We are very well accepted in the communities we support and the local teachers, principals, facility managers and community leaders have wonderful things to say about the volunteers who give their time to help them. Our vulnerable child and orphan care projects have a strong focus on early childhood development, nutrition and learning through play, to ensure these kids are well prepared and ready to enter school.

Our child and orphan care volunteer projects are run in partnership with our charity, The African Impact Foundation, and we follow very strict protocols to ensure our responsible approach. We have a detailed Child Protection Policy which all African Impact staff, volunteers and interns abide by, and any person joining our projects must submit criminal record checks before arrival.

Working with children, particularly in rural Africa, can be an incredibly humbling and rewarding experience; it can be a real eye-opener and often quite harrowing, but you won’t meet friendlier children with bigger smiles anywhere else in the world.
