St. Dymhpna Special Need School in Arusha, Tanzania

About

We have joined hands with St. Dymhpna Special needs school where we place volunteers located at Kwa Idd in Arusha. The school was founded in 2002, has 40 students and 7 staff. The children range from age 5 to 25.

The center lacks the skilled personnel and relevant equipment to deliver the special care and attention needed to provide these children with a stimulating environment. They need volunteers to help with education and providing one on one stimulus and motivation. Volunteers may also be required to help with motion, lifting and handling, personal hygiene, and other day-to-day tasks that the children simply cannot perform on their own.
