In 2007, UNICEF estimated the population of orphaned children in Tanzania to be around 2.6 million. Almost a million children have been orphaned due to AIDS alone. Other diseases such as TB, Malaria, Typhoid, and Yellow Fever have left over a million children with no one to turn to. Traditionally, orphaned children rely on extended family to care for them, but in many cases extended family members are unable to provide children with the care and support they need to thrive. Many children are forced to turn either to orphanages or the streets for survival. Orphanages are always in need of volunteers to help with the day to day care of the children as well as assist with taking care of the orphanage facilities. Volunteers serve the important role of giving the children one on one attention which is necessary for healthy development.
