Volunteer Activities: Fruitful Orphanage is located just outside of Arusha. It was established by Isaac J Summary in 2013. Fruitful Orphanage provides accommodation, food, schooling and care to 30 children aged 3-13 years. 12 children live in the orphanage full time. The remaining children live at the facility during the weekdays and stay with relatives on the weekend or come to the facility during the days because their parents are ill and cannot properly care for them, but return home at night.
DAILY ACTIVITIES AT FRUITFUL ORPHANAGE include:
• Cleaning dormitories, toilet plus school and staying area.
• Cleaning the chicken coop and feeding the chickens.
• Preparing the porridge and lunch for the children.
• Attending/teaching different classes.
• Playing with the children different games/sports.
• Washing the utensils after the children finish drinking porridge and lunch.
• Helping the children to make their bed.
• Helping the children washing the clothes together with helping them buying soap etc.
In the future, Fruitful Orphanage intends to expand the capacity to cater for more children, as well as to provide more comprehensive schooling for the children. This includes plans to build a library, which will include information technology to better prepare children for life in the modern world.
Fruitful Orphanage is also pursuing income-generating activities, such as the rental of tents, chairs and tables for events in and around Arusha, a small stationery shop, and raising animals for consumption and sale.
