The Queen Elizabeth Home for Children, in Tempe, is the oldest childrens' home in Grenada. Named for British Queen Elizabeth II, it supports kids who are orphaned or in need of care. Children are given food and lodging, taken to and from school, and provided with extra-curricular activities. Some kids live there temporarily until a family can be found for adoption but many remain until they are old enough to be self-sufficient among the community. The Queen Elizabeth Home is supported by voluntary contribution and you can help! Donations of time, transportation, and money are always welcome and greatly appreciated.
Every Monday, SO Volunteers travel to Queen Elizabeth to spend quality time with the kids and help with reading and writing skills. Join us at the upper SGU bus stop at 3pm for transportation to the location. At 5pm, we head back to SGU.
Saturdays from 10am-12noon at Grand Anse Beach, SOs visit and play with kids from the Queen Elizabeth Home for Children. You can take Bus A: True Blue/Grand Anse to get there. Bring your
own children to play, as well! We simply request that SOs wear modest swimsuits
when around the children, so please keep that in mind.
In addition, we sometimes need volunteers to accompany QEH kids to the dentist. We take a few children at a time and transportation can be provided.
Please note. If you take pictures of the children you are not to post public photos of their faces or label their names. It is a matter of privacy for the children and in their best interest.
