Simoonga Orphanage Home

Volunteers should choose Simoonga Orphanage Home for the following reasons; > we are friendly >we need education > we need influence We are a Charity entity that needs whatever assistance we can get from the volunteers to help us feed the children, clothe them, as well as sustain the daily operations. We do not discriminate, we welcome people of all races. The orphanage Home also runs a football academy that helps children by getting them to get involved in creative time. The move to keep children preoccupied helps them desist from uncharacteristic and unsocial behaviors like drug abuse. We aim to nature and mentor youth through sport and recreation. As an idle mind is the devil's advocate, we aim at keeping youth recreationally attached so that they desist from substance abuse, early marriage, and unwanted pregnancies, and boy and girl child labor. Soccer in this modern day is a high-paying profession and we believe and want to see some of our children and youth attain through soccer. We run both boys and girls football teams that comprise of participating footballers from the local community. These projects are aimed at character and moral development and we believe that through proper mentorship and a sustainable support system, these children will ultimately be identified by big teams. The Orphanage, though financially challenged helps the team financially through winning allowance. We have enrolled quite a number of these children back to school and we have also introduced a free feeding scheme for them given that they all come from needy and poor backgrounds. We appeal to the world to help us finance this project and actualize the youth goals. We also appeal for volunteers to come on board to help coach and breed the teams. We need necessary coaching skills, we need support in every area of the sporting academy. Everybody is welcome to volunteer either in the Opharnage Home or in the Sporting Academy. HELP US TO HELP THEM, WHATEVER LITTLE WILL GO A LONG WAY.

One of the best experiences I've ever had. The kids from the orphanage and the village are just amazing, we played a lot, I prepared some football training for them, which they loved
Astone and his wife Caroline are amazing people, they really care about the kids and the community and do a serious social work, trying to create a sustainable community for them, the kids and the football project.
I had a really good experience about how life is in Simoonga village, local food, culture and their passion. Loved everything and it was hard to say goodbye to the kids, hope I come back any day soo

I spent 4 weeks at the orphanage, and I had a wonderful time. People are very friendly and helpful, you feel at home as soon as you arrive there.
The orphanage is in a small village where everyone knows each other. You experience the rural lifestyle and you see traditional african housing.
I had the opportunity to teach a few lessons in school (at least till they had to close schools due to Covid).
And I did some activities with the kids, teaching english, artwork with paper, playing chess, baking cakes, ...
Theres also the village football team.
I hope to return again soon.
