October Clean Fest - Call for Volunteer Mentors & Donations: Volunteers for Vulnerable Children (VVC) VVC is a community trust currently operating from Harare and running the House of Smiles drop in centre in the Avenues area. We seek to address the problems faced by children living on the streets. The organisation provides support to families and communities in order to reduce the number of children on the streets.
VVC’s strategic thematic areas of focus are as follows: Rescue which involves identifying and rescuing children on the streets that have been separated from their families. VVC engages in Identification, Documentation, Family Tracing and Reunification; Community work which includes identifying and training volunteer resource persons such as retired teachers, nurses and church leaders in child protection; Prevention work and raising community awareness on child protection; Restoration involves centre rehabilitation for children from the moment they are brought from the street into the centre to reintegration; Research, Advocacy and Reform involves the work that we do with the local and National government to permanently solve the issue of children living on the street; Girls and Young Women recognizes the engendered vulnerability of girls; Foster Care (half way home) to support and enable rehabilitation work prior to reunification.
VVC is kindly calling for volunteer professionals including those that are retired who want to make an impact in the lives of vulnerable children to get in touch with us on email@example.com Those from the following sectors are particularly welcome: arts, music, sport, sexual reproductive health rights. Alternatively, you can get hold of us on +263772935298. Any kind of donations to help us meet the costs of the drop in centre are most welcome and these can in any form including and not limited to donations the improve food and nutrition of children living on the streets, plates, cutlery and cleaning detergents for the House of Smiles drop in centre or even volunteering to take part in a clean-up festival of the drop in centre planned for the 26th and 27th of October 2019.
