Short Term Opportunities - The Orphanage at Berega, Tanzania

International Teams UK

The Orphanage cares for around 20-24 babies whose mothers have died in childbirth. They are cared for the first 2 years of life after which they are usually able to return to their families. Close contact with the family is maintained because a sister or cousin of the baby comes to live in The Orphanage to help to care for the baby. These girls are called ‘binties’ and learn mothercraft skills as well as continuing their general education.

Opportunity to help with the care of the babies in The Orphanage.

Cost – depends on length of placement.

*All applicants/Teams for a placement will go through our application process which will include a DBS check and a time of training before departure. On advice from each location a budget will be given for each placement which will cover the basic costs of that placement. It will not cover personal costs and with flexible exchange rates the budget will be finalised nearer to the time of serving. International Teams UK includes a training, DBS and organisational fee on each placement.
