The Buduburam refugee camp is a home for Liberian’s who fled their country during the civil war. The living condition at the camp is not the best and most of the people don’t have any meaningful job making it difficult to care for their kids. Some of the kids also have no parents because of the war. A school and a care centre has been established at the school to care for these people.
The orphanage school presently has 100 children, ranging from age 3 to 15, attending every day. This is a year round project. A feeding program has been established to provide a hot lunch every day. The school levels range from pre-school through grade 6. School hours start from 7am to 3.30pm. Volunteers will teach English classes focusing on basic alphabet, mathematics and also be involved in after school fun activities, sports, arts and crafts and other games with the kids. Volunteer will actively assist with the feeding program helping to make and distribute meals to the children. The basic aim is to offer assistance to encourage and inspire less privileged but intelligent children in the camp to stay in school, and assist them to lift themselves out of poverty.
