Yesterday we visited the Pippi House – a safe house for girls in Arusha.
You can volunteer there with Projects Overland!
Pippi House is a safe house for girls who are homeless, from poor families, orphans, commercial sex workers, were forced into marriage and abused. The foundation is providing accommodation, food and education for around 20 girls, some of them with their babies. By educating the girls, they educate the nation of the future, because the girls will teach their own children again. The house owns a small garden and chicken to provide additional food and a shop where the girls sell small good and learn how to take responsibility. Pippi House is looking for volunteers who can teach English, Arts and Mathematics, plan fun and socially beneficial activities, help cooking and teach basic computer skills and health education. They should be sensitive and patient as some of the girls have endured horrific circumstances in their lives.
