Tsungirirai is a safe house for abused and vulnerable children in Norton and the surrounding communities . Since its inception in the late 90 s, 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.
Participants should arrive at least two days before the camp starts for orientation. It is important to note that projects locations may change due to several reasons beyond our control. There might be few applications for participation, late cancellation by volunteers or the community failing to make its contribution to the project in the last minute, and finally insecure situations. Therefore volunteers are urged to be flexible and accept alternative options.
Participants should be flexible, ready for both physical and mental work
