Throughout the day, New Hope Home staff, volunteers, and caregivers will provide supervision, emotional support, and guidance to ensure the children feel safe, loved, and supported in their environment. They will work to create a structured routine that promotes the children’s well-being, growth, and development despite the challenges of living in institutional care.

Who will be looking after them?

 In New Hope Home, children will be typically cared for by a team of dedicated staff members. This may include social workers, caregivers, nurses, psychologists, and educators. Each staff member plays a crucial role in providing emotional support, guidance, and supervision to ensure the well-being and development of the children under their care.

Who will be teaching them?

The teaching staff at an orphanage will consist of qualified educators, volunteers, or even older children who have been trained to assist in teaching. They will be responsible for providing structured learning opportunities, including academic subjects, life skills, and personal development activities. These educators will often adapt their teaching methods to meet the diverse needs and abilities of the children in the orphanage.

What do they learn?

Children in orphanages will learn a variety of subjects and skills aimed at their holistic development. This will include basic academic subjects such as math, language arts, science, Christian religious education { CRE }, and social studies. Additionally, they will receive instruction in life skills such as cooking, cleaning, personal hygiene, and financial literacy. Emotional and social development is also prioritized, with activities focused on building self-esteem, communication skills, and healthy relationships. Overall, the curriculum will be tailored to meet the unique needs and interests of each child while preparing them for future independence and success.

What do they eat? 

The meals that will be provided to children in the orphanage will be typically nutritious and balanced to support their growth and development. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be usually served, along with snacks throughout the day. Meals will often include a variety of food groups such as grains, protein sources like meat or legumes, fruits, vegetables, and dairy products. Eg. For Breakfast children will have bread, peanut butter, and eggs.  During launch time children will be eating meat, beans, rice corn flour, vegetables, and others. Additionally, We may involve children in meal preparation as a way to teach them cooking skills and promote healthy eating habits. 


Playtime will be an essential part of the daily routine in our orphanage, providing children with opportunities for physical activity, social interaction, and creative expression. Depending on the facility’s resources and schedule, playtime will include both structured and unstructured activities. Structured activities will involve organized sports, games, arts and crafts, or music and dance classes. Unstructured playtime allows children to engage in free play, where they will explore their interests, interact with peers, and use their imagination. Playtime will not only be fun but also important for children’s physical and emotional well-being, fostering social skills, problem-solving abilities, and overall happiness. Playtime will depend on the children’s class, e.g. They will have a break at 09:00 am, 10:30 am, 12:30 am, and 03:30 pm.
