The orphanage is a safe house for abused and vulnerable children in Victoria Falls. Since its inception in 2008, the orphanage has housed and saved many children who are dumped by their parents due to unwanted pregnancies and some have the most shocking stories you have ever heard. The orphanage is open to volunteers from 0900am to 1700hrs each day. It currently shelters over 71 children between the ages 1 year 4 months to 17 years of age. A reasonable number of the children are HIV/AIDS orphans who lost their parents from HIV/AIDS, some were deserted by their parents dumped in bushes, toilets among other places. The centre also acts as a drop in centre were abused children are kept in good health and safety while investigations are pending by responsible authorities. volunteer activities will include playing with the children using those kind of games that we take lightly when we are back home and think they are old fashioned, assist with school homework and generally ensuring that children are engaged at all times
