KAZIRA orphanage program provides a great opportunity to work very closely with children who have mostly neglect, abuse or lost their parents to HIV/AIDS. The big smiles and love of these children towards anyone who is willing to help them in any way, leaves lots of memories in the minds of volunteers and interns, making it hard to part from them at the end of the program. The volunteers and interns teach basic and conversational English. Activities include: games, drawing, organizing day sightseeing with the children, feeding, washing the children and other creative activities.
