The Treasure Hunt programme is a compulsory activity for all potential volunteers, which helps to develop their ability to fundraise and explain to others about the project that they will be helping. We hope that this will also encourage more people to also become inspired to volunteer in our projects or help us in our work with the children.
Even if you cannot visit the projects, you can still get involved in our Treasure Hunt! Volunteers who are intending to come are often able to carry in special items that you may be able to help with. Please check out the needs area to become more familiar with items that would always be appreciated. Besides this, on most of the mailing lists, volunteers in the project can inform you of donations that would be much appreciated, as the list changes from time-to-time.
Sample text for your campaign to bring materials:
Collect all your old toys together, books and drawing materials and donate them to an orphanage.
Most orphanages have a shortage of artistic materials for the children to practice their newly developing talents in writing and drawing. This means they need paper as well as colouring pens, pencils and paints.
What may seem a trifle to you, is a wonderful gift to a child who does not have parents to provide those special little extras that most kids take for granted. If you can help with a donation or by offering a collection point for the materials in a shopping centre, please contact us today!
