One of the most popular volunteering projects in Africa, VolSol hosts hundreds of participants every year who are keen on working with the adorable kids at the orphanages in Arusha, Tanzania.

The Orphanage Volunteer Program focuses on the welfare and development of underprivileged children. Those who are interested in working here, usually get placed in different centers in and around the region of Arusha. Due to the widespread disease of HIV/ AIDS, many children have become homeless in Tanzania and other African countries. The extended families of these children are forced to send the children to such orphanages, due to economic constraints.

Volunteering with children in an orphanage will be the most rewarding experience for gap year travelers and students. If you choose to do work here, you need to be adaptable, flexible and prepared to face and hear heartbreaking stories of the children's backgrounds. In a typical project placement, there are around 30-40 children in the age group of 4-15 years. Rest assured, you'll be touched to the core after spending some time here with the kids.
