The Green Lion
This program gathers in a communal center to take care of its local children with a mixture of disabilities. They are all from families who cannot afford to pay for the daily care of their children. The main role participants will play at this project is caring for the children. This will be in the form of comforting them, playing games and socialising with them. Daily physiotherapy routines are carried out for the children in helping them develop themselves, in which you can play a part. But other activities encouraged and greatly enjoyed by the children too, for example playing games, dancing and singing, painting, art and other means of creativity, are all encouraged for the children. If you would like to bring any materials to assist with the aforementioned activities, this would be warmly received. Experience in this field would be advantageous but by no means essential.
About the Accommodation : Our center is located in Monze, the southern province of Zambia. It’s about 2.5 hours from the capital, Lusaka, and around 3 hours from airport. You will stay in a dorm-style center with other participants. Each house accommodates 12 people with rooms shared between 4-8 people (separate genders) and a shared bathroom that has a flushing toilet and shower. Food Arrangements : The staple food of Monze is Nhima (corn flour) but you will find rice for example in some restaurants that offer international foods. For this program you will find yourself dining on healthy local Zambian foods like nhima, potato, bread, meat, fish, lots of vegetable, nuts and eggs and sometimes rice and spaghetti.
