The Children's Home
The Children's Home is the epicenter of daily life in Noah's Ark. At the moment, more than 120 children live, play, eat and bathe in this building. Ugandan caretakers called Aunties are caring them for 24/7. The older children live in small scale Family Units.
The Children's Home is a long stretched building with two wings centered around a large living room. Children are divided into three groups: babies, toddlers and school children. The first wing houses a nursery where the youngest children sleep as well as a sick bay and bedrooms for the toddlers. The second wing houses bedrooms for the older children in the home. Restrooms and dressing rooms can be found in both wings. Every child has its own bed and shares their bedroom with 8 children. In the living room, all children have a fixed spot on the table and meet the same aunties every meal.
Our aunties play with the children but also teach them how to behave properly on the table, share their toys with others, and discipline the children when needed by making them face the wall or sending them to bed. When the children feel sick or have a wound they know where to go; there is always an auntie somewhere to care for them.
