Do you think little kids are the cutest thing ever? Obviously! If spending time and caring for the littlest of humans makes you absurdly happy, then this project was made for you! On the Child Care Volunteering in Zimbabwe project, you’ll be helping underprivileged kids with their communication skills and overall development. It’s guaranteed to be one of the most rewarding experiences of your life.
Child Care Volunteering in Zimbabwe
The Child Care Volunteering in Zimbabwe project supports early childhood development centers in the region. These facilities provide underprivileged children, typically ages 4 to 6, with the opportunity to learn and develop in a safe and supportive environment.
Volunteers will work with the kids to help them with learning, socializing, eating, maintaining proper hygiene, and having fun on a daily basis! You’ll also assist in the building of new play equipment and provide added support for any new or ongoing projects at the center.
Room & Board
Your project fee for the Child Care Volunteering in Zimbabwe project covers your room and full board in either a host family house or volunteer dorm-style facilities depending on the location of your placement.
- Shared, single-sex dorm room in the volunteer house or with a host family if requested
- 3 meals per day provided by an in-house cook
- Filtered drinking water is not available so volunteers are encouraged to bring a water filter/purifier to avoid having to purchase bottled water (and reduce plastic consumption!)
- Limited WiFi is available for email and communications (streaming/downloading prohibited)

Criminal Record Check
GOAT Volunteers requires a criminal record (background) check for all projects working with children. Inquire with your local police department to see if they offer this service (many do for free or a small fee). U.S. citizens can visit the U.S. Department of State website for additional information.
The criminal record check must be submitted to GOAT Volunteers after the prospective volunteer’s application is accepted and at least 30 days prior to the project start date.
