About the local hosting organizationICYE MOZAMBIQUE
About the volunteer workProviding education and housing of children with support of marginalized. Remar houses and schools over 200 children, of all ages. It also works in drug rehabilitation. The organisation takes in people who have nowhere else to go. - Remar has different houses for different groups of children, which are situated in different areas of Maputo, though the main project camp is situated in Machava, a few kilometers outside the city. In Machava there is: A girl's house (situated 5 minutes walk away from the main site); Two boy's houses; A Church; A School; A Bakery; A soon to be completed factory along side a warehouse; and the house of one missionary family. The babies' house and drug rehab centre are situated in different areas of Maputo. Remar has two shops in the city centre where they sell second-hand items. The office and main housing for the people in charge are situated in Museu the city central district. Volunteers are expected to work with the children and not in the drug rehabilitation activities. As a volunteer in Remar you have not a role unless you create one yourself; this gives you the freedom to be creative. The volunteer will be working outside of the school schedule, so you will not be formally teaching. You will be given the freedom to choose the age group and gender of children you wish to work with. You will, depending on the children's age group you desire to work with, be given a time slot when the children will be available for you. This will not be a large amount of time each day. As time goes by you can find other ways to assist and help the children. You are also, if you wish, free to help out and arrange things at weekends around church and Remar events. Keep the Remar head staff aware of all your ideas and plans. The different groups of children have the following schedules: Babies - Around ten children and some mothers: Are awake from very early in the morning until 12pm, then they nap until 2pm and are awake until 5pm. Younger boy - 40 children. Are awake very early in the morning until school, which is from 12pm until 5pm. Older boys - Around 50 children. This is a mixed age group, and the timetable (when they are at school and when they are free for a volunteer to work with them) can vary from morning to afternoon. - Girls house - Around 50 children. There are three groups of children: an older (teenage), a middle and first class. So again timetables vary: Older class > available from 13:00 until 17:00 Mid class > available in the morning First class > available in the morning
