The project works with children between 5 and 17 years. At the moment 150 children (divided in two groups) are attending the project. Each group stays four hours: there is a group in the morning and a group in the afternoon. AmaneSer takes care of the children while they are not studying. Otherwise they would hang around in the streets where they get in contact with drugs and prostitution or they would be at home where they often are abused or become witnesses of violence.
Host family outside the project
The project offers different activities to the children: they do workshops of music, dance and handicrafts; they talk in smaller groups about topics like sexual health, pregnancy, prostitution; they do sports, watch movies or go out to play in the park. Furthermore the children have the possibility to do their homework and they get free meals. Moreover there are a lot of professionals like psychologists and social workers who are working with the children to bring them forward in their personal process.
The volunteer must be interested in working with children and very patient, creative, spontaneous. He/she should have a high frustration tolerance, because activities often don’t work out as they should. The volunteer should be very assertive, be able to show authority and must be open-minded towards religiousness, because the team is very religious.
