The Childcare and Orphanage volunteer abroad program is based in orphanages, or in community centers, crèches, and schools that provide a safe and healthy place for poor parents to leave their young children while they work to make their living.
Volunteer Work with Children in Orphanages and Day Care Centers
There are so many ways for you as a childcare volunteer abroad, to make the children happy: you can play with them, teach them some basic things like reading, English, make them take shower... and so much more. Often, some very simple things are so important for them: if you show your kindness and affection, this will change everything for the children.
The Childcare Volunteer Abroad Program allows volunteers to be placed in local surrounding community centres, crèches, orphanages and schools. These projects are put in place to aid local parents and carers in childcare, whilst they are at work. As a member of the project you will assist with cooking, playing games/sports, tutoring, management of healthcare and aiding the overall organisation of the project.
Skills needed for Childcare abroad volunteers
As a volunteer you must be passionate in contributing towards the positive development of children and young people. You must be willing to adapt, and fully emerge yourself into the experience, through using self-initiative and your own motivation for success.

Working with children is great fun and extremely worthwhile. Your involvement with the program offers increased resources for the centre for renovation and expansion of facilities. You will support to the local professionals and the children in their care. The program aims to provide awareness and understanding of the local communities and provides opportunity for cultural exchange.
